Default Anyone know where to get a front sight for a Remington Genesis?

A friend has my old Remington Genesis and the front fiber optic sight broke. Not the whole sight, but just the fiber optic bar. I'm not sure if you can just replace that or have to do the whole sight. My friend hasn't had any luck finding the sight so I thought I'd see if anyone knew where to find one?

The Genesis has williams sights so you could just order them from Williams' website
http://www.williamsgunsight.com/gunsights/muzzle.htm
or any place that carries Williams fire sights. The CVA round barrel model fit the Genesis I'm pretty sure

All you need is the glow fiber Optics part. Call Traditions and tell them yours broke. They come in different colors so if you were not happy with the color, mine being orange, then this would be the time to change the color of it. I always thought a green would be nice.

Which Traditions model is the same as the Genesis? Or should I just tell them that it's a Genesis and hope they know which one is needed? Thanks.

The Yukon is basically a Genesis with some minor differences in the way the rear cam swings to cover the primer. You can tell them its a Genesis. That way they will be sure to have the correct part. Besides, they are the Genesis authorized dealer/repair facility.

Thanks guys. I called Traditions and they told me that I would have to contact Williams. I called Williams and got a voice mail for their site department. I'm hoping to hear back from them.

In the mean time after watching a video on Youtube of how to replace the fiber rods, it looks super simple.

Does anyone know where you can just buy the rods themselves, and also what size the sights on the Genesis take?

Well, I see Brownells carries the replacement rods. Now I just need to know the size. Does anyone have a Genesis where they could measure the size? I am out of town so am unable to measure this one.

I hate to do this as I never seem any good at it. But with a new battery in my digital caliper, I got two readings off my Genesis of .060 if that means anything. This is the straight front sight rod. The sight itself was much larger of course. I hope this helped.

Williams shows them at .055 I believe for a Traditions Muzzleloader. I think I would talk to Williams and make sure I get the correct rod.
