I’m looking at replacing the front sight on my carbine, it has a fine copper washed bead and is too fine for my eyes.

I have received a copy of an original from Homestead.

questions are what height should the new blade be and what side do I drift out to old pin .

regards

Dean I purchased the same blade sight a while back from Homestead as well for a 92 I had and I just left it as is. They know more than I do and was confident it was correct.

I always drift from left to right(looking down the barrel) when it comes to sights, even if a front blade pin. It might not matter for front pins but I practice the same procedure left to right.

No problem Dean.

And right to left when re-installing.

Dean, remember the old adage when removing or installing sights: 

Left out, Right on!
