I have seen these on Ebay from time to time, and now that I need a couple, I cannot seem to find any. Anyone have a couple spares? Big Larry

Which clips are you looking for?  The 67A did not have an “aperture”, it used the 75C bead front sight except for the G6702R and the G6780R which had the same 97A front ramp sight as the Model 68.  If you need the clips for the 97A sight and ramp I might have an extra 1 or 2.

Just let me know what you need and I will send it to you.  Won’t be home for another 2 weeks though.

Unless I am reading my sight book wrong, the 67-A was formerly known as a Globe sight that had small apertures held in with the “C” clips. I have one on my M1885 and SS M52. I used to have a Springfield Style “T” that also had one. The factory letter on the M1885 states it is a globe front sight. Nothing more. They are relatively expensive going for over $200 when found complete. Maybe I should go back and read my sight book. At 78, I am prone to forget all I have ever learned. Anyway, I need a couple “C” clips.  Thanks old friend.  Big Larry

Aha!, I thought you were looking for a clip for the Model 67A rimfire rifle front sight.

I am a .22 guy and that is where my brain went. 

I don’t have anything for a 67-A front sight, sorry.

Hey 22 guy. Both my M67-A’s are on 22’s. It was optional for most all Winchester rifles. Thanks JWA. You are “D” man. Big LarryM67-A-Globe.jpgImage Enlarger

Yes but those .22’s that used the 67-A are out of my price range. 😉

I do seem to recall someone making repro clips awhile ago, Homestead Parts possibly?

You know if I had some they would be yours and in the mail already.
