Default T/C Front sight

Does anyone have one of the T/C Hawken front sights with the brass bead. The one that's about 1" long and about 3/8" high with a 3/8" dovetail?
I want to put it on my barrel when it comes in.

bronko,

I probably have a spare T/C original Hawken style sight... they never came with a brass bead. They were investment cast steel.

Check out this link... maybe you'll find something you like.

I looked at those BPS. I must be thinking of the older GM barrels then that had the brass bead. I usually put a dab of white fingernail polish on them anyway to see them better. The original sight looked more like a blade sight then the newer ones.

Yes my GM .54 1:70 barrel had a brass bead on the front sight but I didn't like it because the bead seemed too big or "blocky". I replaced it with a Marbles sight. They have different diameter bead sizes available. I also have a Marbles #45W with a 1/16" ivory bead on one of my MLs.

looks kinda like this...
