Default front sight for 188 series Mini 14

Hi There,
I'm new here. First post.
Looking to remove a flash hider & replace it with original front sight. I've searched everywhere for the front sight & can't find one. Any ideas on where to search?
Any tips on removing the flash hider?
Thanks a bunch!

I'll start asking my customers for their "leftover" front sights & let you know who has one available after installing our Mo-Reaper...

I have some blued ones that show varying degrees of wear, and some stainless ones that are in great shape. Either could be painted if desired. Shoot me an email below if you're interested. Thanks!

A little confused. I removed the so called flash hider/muzzle brake from mine and it did not affect the front sight. I just drifted the roll pin out and used a hammer and a block of hardwood to drive the flash hider off. I then installed a new roll pin. Is yours a one piece unit?
