WTB: Elliason Rear Sight BOUGHT ONE

Post by Allen Barnett on 5/19/2016, 5:42 pm

I am in need of a Elliason rear sight for my ball gun.  This sight was popular in the late fifties and early sixties.  It uses the standard Colt dovetail cut with the elevation screw tapped into the slide.  It is not the Colt Elliason Gold Cup Sight.  It is similar to what I believe is also called a "Rollo Sight".  Kensight makes a rear sight that fits the "GI" dovetail cut but it is to tall with the front sight I am using.  Changing front sight is not an option as it is a custom sight milled into the slide and I do not want to change this arrangement as it was the way my Dad built the gun before leaving the Air Force Marksmanship Unit at Lackland AFB in 1963.  If anybody has what they think might work give me a call at 573-291-3156 or e-mail me at barney280@gmail.com

The Kensight replacement is to tall to work with my front sight.  I tried one but had to file down the blade to the point that the notch was to shallow.  Even tried to increase the depth of the notch but then there was obstruction in the sight picture with the elevation screw.  If I cannot locate an old sight my final option will be to have the slide milled for one of the current suppliers or to retire the gun.

I believe I have an ancient Millet new in the box sitting on my workbench at home.
The box says it's for a Gold Cup
