Just picked up my first DW today, 15-2 VH.

The windage screw on the rear sight spun freely (detent wouldn’t engage), so I took the sight off and put it in the ultrasonic cleaner, it works OK now.

Put it back on, and discovered that the elevation screw also spins freely.  Looking at other pics online, it looks like there is supposed to be a microscopic detent ball in the sight housing that goes under the elevation screw. 

Is that the case, and if so, any clue where I could get one or what the size is?

After a considerable amount of sweating and some choice words, I decided to check one more time in the bottom of my ultrasonic cleaner, and there it was.  Luckily I’d just cleaned it out before cleaning the sight or I never would have found it.

For the next guy that has this question, the diameter is .030-.031 

Where you would go about buying a ball bearing that small I haven’t a clue, although I’m thankful I don’t have to find out LOL.
