I used to have a source for reproduction tang sight screws (Axtell sights) but they are out of business now for many years.  Anyone have a good source for the hard to find tang sight screws to fit 1873 for thick base sight, 1876 for pistol grip and straight grip for thin and thick base sights?

I may have answered my own question.  I remembered “Winchester Bob” who still seems to be making reproduction Winchester parts.  It looks like he has some tang sight screws.  I know that thin and thick base sights use different length screws and pistol grips sometimes need different length screws.

Any others?

thanks!

I call myself a collector as it sounds better than hoarder

Lee Shaver makes tang sights to fit Winchesters, so I presume he also supplies the screws.
