The one that is the same height as the current sight. Where did you find fiber optics for it?

Call Taurus or measure the broken one.

They are a pain in the ass to replace. You have to heat the rod without scorching it to form the bubbles that hold it in place.

I drilled out the ends of the sight, so the rod would pass right thru. Then it's easy to form the rod with a small torch, one end at a time.

An easy way to do it is by holding a soldering iron tip a hair away from the filament tip, until it starts melting. Or just touch it up (the soldering tip must be free of any residue)

A tiny dab of clear epoxy holds the rods good also.

Bear in mind that the larger the bubble you form on the inside of the sight, the larger the illuminated dot. I make a small bubble on a range pistol and a larger bubble on a carry pistol, as a quick acquisiton aid ( my poor old eyes !)
