Where are these available?  I am looking for “Post and Pin Head”.  I have the flat top post and post with circle, my poor eye sight won’t allow a good sight/target picture.    RDB

MVA.  And while you’re at it, check out their excellent Winchester scope repros.

Roger, before you place that order, I bought a set of inserts from MVA but they didn’t fit the front sight on my Shiloh Sharps rifle.  I think the sight may have been from eastern Europe.  Anyways, if you are interested, I can send you this set.  If they fit your sight, we can work out a deal.  If not, send them back.

Let me know.

Thanks Clarence and Bill.  Bill, those inserts are not for the Winchester Globe sight, but thanks for the thought.  I reread the item description and if I understand the description correctly, their inserts are half as thick as the original Winchester inserts.  As I understand that, you would need to use two at a time to keep them in place.  Any observations on this?   RDB

Roger, I hope that MVA can help you out.  It’s good to know they are a source for the globe sight inserts.
