I'm looking for the front sight for a Reising Model 65/H&R 65/H&R Leatherneck. 

 

It's not available from Numrich, Sarco, Sherwood/Northridge, or Bob's Gun Shop.  Waiting to hear back from Jack First.  Any thoughts on where to look?  Thanks.

I'm sorry to say that in my decades of being into Reisings , I never saw one on the loose . I tried to find one to replace my cut wing one on my 65 , but never did . Good thing , too , because it turned out to be a true USMC modified one .

Have you tried Keystone?  They're the source for 50, 55 and 60 parts.  They may have other Reising stuff lying in the back room that they don't advertise

Just so you do your search right, the M65 was called "The General". The later M165, M150 and M151 were "Leathernecks".

I bought one a few years ago from Numrich, so I guess they ran out fairly recently.
