    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.

    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

    Just outstanding James!

    I think the H&Rs are overlooked and under rated in today's market.

    Very nice collection.
