Hello,

My Model 14 has a loose rear sight blade and attempting to tighten it up doesn't seem to last. I can order the individual parts from Brownells, but if anyone has a kit they'd like to let go, please send a PM and we can work out the details.

Thanks,
Chase

Now is your opportunity. Buy a Weigand rear sight. You will need new windage screw and nut. They are staked together and will break when removing them. Be careful of detent ball and spring.
Anyway, it’s a great rear sight once it’s installed!

Darrell-

Would that be legal for NRA DR?

It looks like all I really need is the windage screw; I'm assuming the blade and nut are OK (haven't disassembled yet). Turns out, everyone is out of the windage screw from S&W; but if there are any kits with all the parts, that may be handy in case the blade itself is messed up inside.

Thanks,
Chase

Chase,
I just read the rules and sure looks legal to me. But, a new sight blade is not going to help if you can’t get the screw and nut.
On another note, I thought that it was not legal for the front sight to be adjustable (it knocked out older Colt Officers Model Match revolvers) but I didn’t see that in the rules now.
Regarding your sight I suggest you call S&W and try to buy the parts.

Weigand rear blade would fall into an external modification that is not factory. So, being pessimistic, wouldn't be legal in either CMP or NRA unless clarified. (Aftermarket sights are legal for Service Pistol)

NRA DR, adjustable front sights are a not legal.
CMP Service Revolver, adjustable front sights are legal.

I have a few kits, but you need to know what blade width before anything else. I have a few different heights and sights are complete. The staked nut and spring make them a bit of a pain.

You can call S&W Tech Support, and they might send you the parts you need.

Describe exactly what is wrong, and give them the model number and Serial Number.  They have sent me the needed parts, twice.

Check the height of your blade, so they can make sure they're sending you the right part.  You'll want the nut that gets staked in place, and the plunger and spring as well if you don't have both.

There is a handy video on MidwayUSA that shows how to do this.


Tip - if you don't want to go searching over all of your floor for parts that spring out as you disassemble the sight, do it inside a large plastic "turkey cooking bag" that you can get at the food market.  Parts may still go flying, but you won't lose them.

No, sorry, that's the one I was thinking of, I thought it's in stock because I just received mine two days ago.
