    Well, I reckon it's a lot easier working on your own possessions in your own time. I'm sure I'd end up well under minimum wage if I tried this stuff professionally!

    Your gunsmith may be right about drilling and tapping, but surely he can offer alternatives? Sweating one on as mentioned above, or putting on a sleeved/banded type of front sight?

    He reakons sweating on can wreck barrel and he put the barrel band suggestion I made in the too hard basket,getting any gun parts from the states is a pain as I’m sure there will be a barrel band option available.

    Blued Rossi with the front sight all one piece with the forward barrel band,need to put a higher hi viz front sight on somehow,he showed me a couple of Rossi barrels that were cracked under the dovetail cutout where front sight was so ruled out that option as well.

    Only about 4mm of barrel thickness to work with.

    Well I'm no expert, but 4mm sounds like it should be do-able for drill and tap? Sweating is commonly used so not sure why it should wreck the barrel (other than the finish). Failing all that, have a look at Loctite Black Maxx adhesive. I've never used it myself, but have read several times of it being used for attaching sights with good results.

    Litle bit pedantic, but maybe not the hight temp sweating, more soldering.
    In saying that i have a 357 exactly the same. Why cant he put a dovetail on the front barrel band/front sight assembly to suit a hi-vis blade?

    They've been soldering front sights onto thinner barrels than that for a few hundred odd years now with no real issues - dunno why it's so hard for your guy. Might be a confidence issue with the amount of experience he has and not wanting to risk fluffing the job up? Kudos for being cautious if so!

    I think there would be several ways of achieving your aim, but if your looking for a different idea would it be possible to grind the front blade off and drill and tap the top of the barrel band block for a fiber optic front bead like they put on shotguns? This may not be high enough? Or do you need windage adjustment of the foresight also?

    All I would say is your level of trust differs from mine, ask Dave Gibson about the guy he uses.
