Here are 3 different Lyman sights.  I don't know what the first one is but the second one is a 5 and the last is a 5b.

The first one is the 5b with a brass bead instead of the ivory, the second is the 5 with the ivory post and the last is the 5a barleycorn.

I prefer the 5A(barleycorn post). More durable.

Bob you are right about the last one being the 5A.  Finger and brain disconnect. Stroebel does not show a brass bead example but Tom Rowe's book does.  That is where I got the 3 pictures.   Others have knocked his book so I am reluctant to use his info. Stroebel's book has bad pictures.

Instead of the ivory bead (5B) or ivory post(5) it has a steel post(5A). The ivory post(5) is 1/16" in diameter and can be tapped up from the bottom but you need to be very careful with the sight when doing that. It has to be removed from the gun and the globe held in a Aluminum padded vice. If you try tapping it while in the gun you will probably shear the pivot pins and have to look for the globe on the floor.

Bob  

Bob, what tool is used to push the ivory? Do you use any penetrating fluid ?

Bob is sharp when it comes to details like this. One thing I've managed to learn from him is that the Lyman combination sight that I have pictured above is the No. 5. I thought it was the 5B, but as was pointed out, the pictures in Stroebel's book are poor.

I can’t say enough about what I’ve learned already from you James, Bob, Big Larry, Clarence, Chuck & Bert. I’m sure I’m missing others & appreciate the help and replies.
