Looking for a gold dot front site for my 4" GP that I do not need to sell a lung to afford, I know the factory used to offer one but it's no longer listed on Ruger's website. Any ideas if it is still made, tried a google search but found alot of pics but none for sale?

Don't think it is made, anymore. It was made for the Redhawk which if I recall had a slightly taller front sight than the GP100. It had a rear sight with a V-notch and I think called an Express Sight. Only alternative I can think of is to use an Express Sights standard dot (no tritium) with a V-notch blade. Also, I think the dot on the Ruger sight may have been brass, not gold as it wasn't as shiny.

Gemini Customs makes one, but... how firm are you on the keeping both lungs thing? They're about a hundred bucks.

I contacted them last week, $179!! :shock: I can't afford that needless to say. I plan on nite siting it but wanted a cheaper alternative until then.
Jimbo let me know.

Good sights for young eyes !!!

Then as lite faded so did the express sights , then came the fiber optics , now I have REDDOT or BURRIS optics on the hunters & big orange front blades on the plinkers , but I`m still shootin !!!

Good Luck with your search !

I`m in the middle of moving into a new man cave & lost ALL my grip panels, took 2 days for the CRS to wear off but I found em !!

Trouble,
If ya want that GOLD DOT cause cool, get that.

But if ya want it for a fast alignment of sights....

Own both a GP100 and a Super Redhawk.
As I knew the SRH would wear a scope always.......
with a great orange insert.

Turned out both gun front sites EASILY interchangeable.

NOW,
SRH wears a scope(and a GP100 standard front site),
The GP100 wears the SRH's front site !
That orange insert lines up on the target fast if needed for defense,
But solid black above the orange for a well aimed shot!

Ya might wanna check out if that site is what yer looking for.

Up to you, but worked for me. ;)
