Hey everyone!

I just came into possession of a Model 15 which appears to be missing the rear sight windage adjustment screw.  Does anyone know where I can find this screw?  I would have ordered another rear sight but I can’t find anywhere that sells it.  Any suggestions?

Thanks.

Please visit New Members and introduce yourself. 

I went to a bookstore and asked the saleswoman "Were is the Self Help Section?" She said if she told me, it would defeat the purpose.

We need pictures. A model 15, or a 15-1, or a 15-2? 3 different rear sights. Check with member Snake-eye. He might have a screw for a 15-2.

That’s a porkchop barrel shroud, so that rules out the model 15-2.

What you have is a model 15. It has the same rear sight as a model 12. A 15-1 has a much lower sight. It is going to be hard to replace. I will check my stash but your best option  may be Tru Value hardware or similar store.

I do have a replacement body for that sight, but none of the screws, springs, etc.
