View Full Version : S&W 637 Front Sight
Is there anything i can do to upgrade the front sight? i love XS sights, but it would require gunsmithing to affix on this model. Anyone have thoughts, ideas? I'm a police officer and am mainly using this gun for a vest back-up and am mostly concerned with fast target acquisition
So what if it requires gunsmithing? XS will install a Big Dot for $60, you can't beat it.
ya was debating just having them do it, i am a leo so the sight would only be $30, be nice if the install was half off too, they said it would be around $80 for the gunsmithing. was just wondering if there were any other options
I have one on my LCR and it's worth every penny.
Tool Tech (I believe that's the name) is the company that does the night sight installations for Trijicon. I believe they can install a tritium insert in the factory front sight, but I don't know how much that costs.
I've thought about getting the XS sight on my 642, but I pocket carry it from time to time and I'm concerned about that high profile sight snagging during the draw.
I think Gemini Custom has some front sight options you might be interested in. They're known for their work on Ruger revolvers, but I'm pretty sure they work on S&W revolvers, too.
If I were installing a night sight on my gun, I'd prefer a dovetailed sight to make replacement easier when the tritium starts fading.
Another option would be to paint the front sight, though I have no experience with that (at least not yet...something else I'm considering).
Tool Tech is pricey compared to the XS. Agree on the dovetail, but mine is pinned on and should be simple to swap for a new one in 8-10 years.
ya the 637 doesn't have the pin, permanent fixed :(
