Vintage guns with fixed sights.

This revolver was designed with 38/200 military load in mind. Shooting it with lighter 148gr loads produces a different vertical point of impact, sometimes a horizontal offset as well.

    An old school device for converting fixed sight S&W and Colt pistols WITHOUT PERMANENT ADJUSTMENTS is the Wonder-Sight, still available for purchase. I have one installed on a S&W 1937 Brazilian police contract 1917 .45acp revolver. Works well and allows me to adjust point of aim with various cartridges. I would offer a link but it is easily found typing EVANS WONDER SIGHT.

    guess I got lucky – my Enfield shoots to the sights with the 38 S&W 146 gr load.
    don’t know if it was “adjusted” before I got it – or not…..

    I have Smith and Wesson 38-200, a world war two pistol never shot. Can this be made to shoot 38 special ammo? Or as it is what is it worth?
