I just lost my elevator bar part of my  sight for my ‘92 at the range. It’s a standard buckhorn rear sight. Anybody have an extra?

The early guns use a different elevator than the later guns. What is the serial number of your 1892?

My gun was received in the warehouse in July 1898. So early?

Late Elevator

Early elevator

  

Will the early 1873 fit my 1892 made in 1808?

The original later style has a 1901 patent

So does that mean the early one will fit my 1892?

You should post a picture of your sight so we know what you really have if you want us to make that decision for you. The sight could of been replaced.

I already ordered several sights from eBay including the original early 1873 you sent. The sight is the original standard buckhorn. Thanks for all your help.
