Large brass bead or small for a 16" 92 for general shooting?

I would pick the small one, but that's just me.

Front sight is pretty close, on a 16" bbl, but it depends on what you are shooting at, and how far away it is.

You generally don't want your front sight to blot out your target, if you can help it.

I have the small one, it works for me.  Also if you get a chance to meet him, don't pass it up.  Very nice man, he used to live 20 miles from me.  I wished I had used him more often.

'Nate' uses Marbles bead front sights. I have both a small (1/16") and larger (3/32") brass bead sights on two of my Rossis.  The small one is much better for precision and longer range shooting, especially on a 24" rifle with a tang sight while the larger bead on a carbine works well too.  Specs, .450" high x .340" wide, 45MR Gold Front Sight - 1/16" Brass Bead - Marbles p/n 504521, Brownells' p/n 579-504-521WB, the 3/32" Brass Bead - Marbles p/n 604521, Brownells' p/n 579-604-521WB.
