Here's an uh-oh; went to shoot iron sights and discovered no rear sight blade present.

I am guessing that it got bumped somewhere and the blade sprung loose.

Anyone have a spare they can part with?

Anyone hane Hendersons email? Hendo something...

Anyone know the dimensions so I can afapt or make one?

Thanks in advance!

Neal at I.S.S. has/had some H208 parts.  I bought a 208 rear sight blade from him a couple years ago.

You probably already know it is best to call.  817 595-2090.

Here are some rough measurements with a cheap set of calipers.  Note that the front of the sight has a slightly wider opening and shorter height so that the edges toward the eye are sharp.  I did not measure this bevel.  These measurements are of a 3.2 mm sight blade.

Thanks all, and especially to Ed who measured his.
I have one on order from Neil Stepp at ISS in Ft Worth Texas.

We get lazy with our vocabulary; the H208 sight blade is not the same as the 208s that l have. Neil caught it and I am confident the right part will come. I assume that the blade comes out by pushing sideways and lifting? Maybe it just pops straight back down to replace?

Yes, the serrations on the side of the sight blade are there to lever the blade up and out.  The Hammerli tool has a notch to do it.  Yes, it pops straight back down into the slot.  At least that is how it is on my H208s.
