I left out a couple things when I wrote up Pap's piece. The most glaring is that this design lacks a transfer bar safety so it should never, ever, be carried with a full cylinder since a stout enough external blow to the hammer (as might happen if it were dropped) could cause a round to touch off. This is pretty much lottery ticket odds but if one is actually toting a R-101 then loadiing 8 rounds and leaving the hammer down on an empty chamber would be the prudent way to go.
Now that I have gotten the public service announcement out of the way I can move on to the other thing I dropped the ball on.. ..pictures of the sight modifications.
At the risk of being "Caption Obvious" I'll point out that this is the silver dime repurposed as a front sight.
A kind of crappy picture of the rear sight lined with brass. It was really hard to get a good picture which actually speaks to how hinky this rear sight is. This, and the grip, are the limiting factors for this platform.
Too "gun show" for the hippies, too "hippie" for the gun show, I'm the misfit liberal gun nut in the crowd. Probably the only one. Stick around if you are pro-choice on everything including the right to own guns or can handle an opposing view on things.
