I recently bought a Winchester 1895 that had the side mount (Lyman?) sight removed. I thought it would be easy to find a replacement sight, online. I was wrong. Typing "Lyman 21 Side Mount" into Google, and all I get are pictures of the sight.

Buffalo Arms offers a replacement "Lyman 21 type", made by Providence Tool Co. But, I would like an original, with wear, not a new shiny blued one.

Why are they so hard to find? There must have been thousands made.

They aren't.  Why would you be searching Google?  The vast majority of sights are sold on ebay.  Expect to pay about $300.  By the way, a #21 with windage adjustment becomes a #38.
