Has anyone seen the solid orange blade sight for sale anywhere.

That same orange blade was used on a M629. The product code for that gun was 170334.

You could call S&W customer service. Ask them to pull up the parts list for that pc, then ask for the part number for the front sight blade.

Then offer to buy that part number. Be nice and there's a good chance they'll send you one for free.

It is just a piece of plastic - nothing special and quite delicate. My 686-6 came from the factory with it broken off. The factory took a few weeks to send a new one out, saying they were waiting for parts, so I'm guessing they don't make them. While waiting, I decided to put an aftermarket replacement on mine.
