Default Target Model .44 Front Sight Blade

Gentlemen, Where does one get a front sight blade for a Second Model Target .44 (Partridge)? Anyone have originals, or make a good repro?

If that doesn't pan out, I might have one in Marble's Sheard Gold Bead or Paine style. Let me know what height you need.

Be sure to get a PATRIDGE sight, not a Partridge. I could never get focused on feathers on the front of my revolver.

It really helps lighten the muzzle end, though...…..
