S&W 386SC Mountain Lite .357 Magnum

Read Gun Tests Rating and Recommendation

The light-gathering sight system is fast, but we feel the point of impact of this gun needs to be brought down to protect the rear unit, which has to be jacked up to make the gun shoot nearer point of aim. This will require a lower front sight.

This gun has a plastic-filament, light-gathering front sight made by HiViz. The HiViz sight works by gathering ambient light (it will not glow independently in the dark).
