    The Cabela's Uberti 45 Colt shown below has a turned down hammer, sweet trigger and is a good shooter, out to 65 yards I get 85% hits.
    Problem is the sights, front and rear are too indistinct at longer ranges which is where I usually shoot and my hit ratio drops below 20%. I can install a narrow gold bead front sight and I believe it would be good out to 100 yards. Is it worth the hassle?
    I have a Colt SAA 45 Colt so it's not like I'd be cutting my nose off.
    I think I would have more fun shooting @ long range with a Tokerev and loads of cheaper ammo.
    What's your advise

    Great pic!
    What is the cost of a new sight installed?
    What is the cost of 45 Colt ammo?
    What is the cost of TOK ammo?
    Do you really think a Tokarev can give that kind of accuracy @65 yards?
    Or do you just want to blast away with cheap ammo?

    Since you are dissatisfied in the way it shoots at longer ranges, and since you already have a Colt SAA, I recommend leaving the sight alone and selling the Uberti to get a pistol better able to meet your long range criteria.

    I would think shooting a Tokarev at longer ranges would just be infuriating. Perhaps that was the point? ANyway, thats a great looking gun, and it may not be too expensive to change the sights to your liking. I vote keep it.

    Sell it and buy a new toy. Guns are tools and trading a tool you don't use for one you will is always a good idea. Plus, the fun of buying a new gun always outweighs the satisfaction of having an old one.

    Check out the "Evil Roy" by Cimarron. Better sights and you can get it in .357.
