I have a 95 with a front sight that has been bent and filed on one side. So, it doesn’t shoot center and I’m looking for a replacement. Does anyone know where to find one or have one to sell?

I’m looking for the same exact thing.  Except I’m replacing a filed down penny used for a front sight blade.

I haven’t removed the penny but it appears to be a Lincoln.  Heavily filed.

Not to bad a replacement. My father has a 95 US marked Musket with a spanish coin for a front sight.

Sincerely,

Maverick

I need a taller blade for my 95.  Without going through Brad and Rob’s book I don’t know if there is a list of the blades available?  I think there is but I don’t remember where to find it???

Does any sight company make these? I don’t know where to look. I have looked on ebay but can’t wade through the junk that pops up on a search. I may have to take my sight off and bend it back straight and live with the left side filed….I hate to have to do that.
