Does anyone know if IMA still sells REAL Lyman rear sights for the Thompson?

If they do, it is not in their catalogs or on their website.

Any info would be helpful. wink.gif

Thanks,

Norm

Yes, the sights they have came off new 28’s, they are the real McCoy. For $300, they had better be.

I got one late last year. It was in very good condition and in
excellent operating condition.

Norm, that's pretty much the going price. You should have bought one ten years ago for $100.00 wink.gif

...or bought one from Frank for $400 like I did. At the time (pre-IMA kits), it was the going price. Now the price is down to a "paltry" $300.....

Yeah, I know. Anything Thompson now is expensive.

I'll just have to bite the bullet and by one. blink.gif
