Revoman, I don't want to do it at all, but I have been unable to find a bracket that mounts to a single hole that the pre 1993 models have. after 1993 they were all drilled and tapped with 3 holes. if you could point me in the right direction to one that would mount solidly with the single hole, I would appreciate it. This weapon was my father's service revolver for many years, so it holds special meaning to me, so i do want to alter it, but I also don't feel the need to have it sitting around without using it. below is a link to the best mount I have found so far, but it is the one that requires the drilling and tapping of the 2 additional holes.

in addition I've found a pretty reputable place to do the work out of Spring, Texas that could do the work. I emailed them with my questions and concerns last night and waiting to hear back from them. I'll post their website below because I ALWAYS value others opinions!! MG Arms
Thanks for any other options and or suggestions anyone might have. Also I'm a pretty good shot open sights, but my shot from blind to feeder is right at 60 yards and I just want the extra peace of mind of the reflex sight. I owe it to the animal to make an ethical shot.
