Just tried out my 4" Model 65 today. I was a little leery about the lack of adjustable rear sights. I had a Taurus fixed sight .44 special years ago and it didn't shoot to point of aim. This one does! I shot the heart out of the sillohuete target at 20 yds. Shoots ever so slightly to the left, the farther out you go. After a while, you forget that it doesn't have target sights. The front post fills the grooved sights nicely. Trigger pull is smooth and light. .38 specials are a dream to shoot, but it handles factory magnums very well. Just a joy to shoot. After putting 400 rounds through it at paper targets, I found that I had one .38 special remaining (158 grain FMJ Flat Nose). So just for the hell of it, I took aim at 12" metal ram 100 yds away. I put the front sight slightly at the right hand border of the ram and squeezed the round off. Ping! Great way to end the session. I think this may end up my favorite. Rugged service revolver with more than acceptable accuracy. At half the price of a S&W it is a great value.
