Default Model 15 Rear Sight Leaf

Model 15-3 with a 2" barrel.
Serial # 8k506xx
Original rear sight leaf has been replaced with incorrect part. The leaf is the correct length but the screw hole is a bit short and previously was bored larger.
I just purchased a sight assembly part #300630 from Numrich. This leaf is about 1/8" short and the mounting screw hole is also wrong.
I have found a S&W part number 5564 in the catalog.
Any help would be appreciated.

I have some older rear sights but would you to measure exactly what you need so I can compare against what I have... be sure we are both understanding measure from where to where on the frame. Maybe a pic with your calipers in place.

The snub nose model 15 rear sight assembly is different from other k frame ones. It is longer. You may have to shorten an N frame one to make it look right. I’ll be interested in seeing if the part Numrich has is correct.

Sorry, can not find my calipers.
First leaf has been redrilled but is the correct length.
Second leaf was purchased from Numrich and is 1/16th too short .
