I’m happy to be part of this community.

I was given a Model 64-7 as a gift. I like how it shoots. I’ve always wanted a revolver. I have two questions:

The serial number is CFJ4106.Can anyone tell me when it was made?

What are some good options for making the Front sight more visible?

thanks!

sorry misread that - CFJ - 2002

typical for these service sights is something like nail polish just on on the rear of the sight to help it stand out - orange is traditional, i use a bright white on blued guns..

A hearty Buckeye welcome from NE Ohio!

A silver sight on a silver revolver can be hard to see. That sight is machined as part of the barrel so replacing it will not be easy nor inexpensive.

First thing I would suggest is a black magic marker. Color both the front and rear sight but only the parts visible when you sight down to revolver. That should help.

Or, here is a rib you can have installed that provides black sights that are adjustable.

Welcome to Smith and Wesson. Blacken those sights as described in a post above.

Crimson Trace laser grips can also be a great help in sighting.

As you can see there are any number of ideas on how to make sights "pop." For me, I use two colors of nail polish. White and orange. A coat of white, let it dry...then a coat of orange. Available at your local "dollar store" for about a buck a bottle. A couple bottles will last you the rest of your life. Pick your own colors of course, but the "primer" coat of white makes a big difference.

Welcome to the forum.
