j,
Thanks!
I have lots more to post.
I also have a model 976, it is the standard model though, not the deluxe target model like yours,they offered both models in 1980,
with the sights being the only difference.
I haven't found one of those yet, I will though.
It's kind of tough when I am so picky.
Everything must be in at least excellent condition, with original box.
Also I have been mostly collecting 1980 manufactured pieces.
Takes a lot of looking to find all these requirements!
Makes the hunt long and exciting.
Here are a few more western pieces.

Model 976 7.5" 1980


Model 949 5.5" 1980
\

Model 586 7.5" 32 H&R magnum 1984


Pair of Nebraska Centennial model 949's 1967
Serial #'s 100, and 118 of 300

mtnsmith,
It just so happens that I do!

Wisner's Inc.

H&R Sportsman 999
Rear Sight Blade
Part # 999-096
.093 thick
$ 10.50

Phone # 360-748-4590

Or google them.

How's that for service?
I bought two awhile back, was just going to try putting one in one of my 999's that I just got back from the gunsmith, and I now can't find the damn things!
I had a machinist friend make me a couple spares a couple years ago. Had to use one of those.
you may have to do some fitting to get them in.
A word from experience. Once you get them in, and set, take the screws out, and put a drop of blue loctite on the threads.
The sportsman's are known for the sight screws working loose, and then losing the blade. It is a real pain, and if you have a machinist make them, it gets expensive.
Was happy to find Wisner's, now if I can just find the sights!!

Good luck!
Jim
