    The only place I can find them still for sale is gunpartswarehouse and they're sold out. Anyone have any other leads?

    I stated in my original post that they are sold out but I do appreciate the response. Anybody else have any leads?

    Hey S-m,
    I was looking for the fixed sights as well. Just happened to see your post and I went back and checked my email and there was my reply from Joe (from gunpartswarehouse).
    I received my notice yesterday that they were in around 11:39am and by noon my order was complete.
    Here's hoping they are what we are looking for.
    Good luck.

    I ordered a set as soon as they came back in stock a few days ago. Thanks

    My order sort of came in today. Ordered/charged for two but got one. Hopefully second coming in a separate envelope soon. Notified Joe waiting for a response, fingers crossed.

    Decided to install the fixed sight while waiting for the second. First I went to Lowe's and purchased a cheap 1/16 drill bit (they didn't have a 1/16 punch) to punch out the pin holding the adjustable sights in place. That thing was in there pretty solid, had to use a little wd40 to loosen it up. Took a few "taps" to get it to budge, but it finally broke free. Also, the first tap on the drill bit broke it in half. I still had enough to get the pin out. FYI
    The fixed sight has some play so I'll have to sight it in this weekend, but it went on very easy.
    Good luck with yours

    First. My issue with the missing sight has been resolved. Joe and his staff sent the part out asap when we discovered that it did not ship. Even had a hand written apology within the envelope. Really wasn't necessary, but a nice touch.
    Second. As I stated earlier, I installed the first sight and took it out shooting. The sight worked well and seemed to be on target. It did, however, come loose at the screw. I tightened it down again and took it out the next weekend with the same results. I'll try some lock-tite next and report back.
    Nice looking sights though.
