Can anyone recommend how to improve the fixed sights on a 25 year old S&W Model 36 Chief. Can a Mechanist widen the rear sight notch or is there something else that could make it easier to pick up the fron sight?

The old Chiefs were more of a point shoot type weapon. About all I ever hoped for was catching the front sight, leveling it and firing. With a lot of practice you can become fairly good with one. I still carry one as old habits are hard to break. :D

S&W Model 36, 2.25" barrel, Chief's Special.

This revolver can accurately be described an a "doctor's gun". You know, EENT. Eyes, Ears, Nose and Throat. If you have the muzzle pressed up against one of those, the target will be neutralized.

"Sights" are, pretty much, an afterthought.

I carry a S&W Model 60, manufactured in 1964. That's a stainless M36.
