The back side of the BFR's matte-black rear sight was serrated to reduce glare. The rear sight was adjustable for windage and elevation, and the adjustment screws were clearly marked. The top strap was also drilled and tapped so a scope mount could be added.
The BFR's front sight is screwed onto the barrel and can be replaced with other blades of different heights. If you plan to shoot a lot of different bullet weights whose points of impact may vary, the BFR's sight set up can help you easily adust.
BFR's Short Cylinder model accommodates pistol cartridges. This heavy, stainless steel five-shooter wore a bright stainless finish. The reverse indexing cylinder allows the user to rotate the cylinder both ways. If you rotate too much and miss the chamber, just turn the cylinder backward.
