    Source for Tall Mauser Front Sight

    Brownells no longer carries one, Liberty Tree Collectors is out of stock. Anyone have another source?

    Weld up an original barley corn front sight and file to shape. Then soak instant blue for a while, dry off and oil. Install and sight in at range until desired POI is achieved. I've done several this way, not hard to do.

    I bought several from Numruch a year or two ago. Maybe they still have some.

    Any old Swedish M96 Mauser front blade is a good one to start with since they are flat topped.
    Add material to the top and duplicate the flat top which aids holding elevation more reliably.

    Looks like I'll probably have to make one. I don't see one at Numrich. Not a big deal, was just hoping to buy one or two.
