I got an adjustable Lyman from International Military Antiques a couple of months ago. I think they also have the L's.

Hi Wolfer,
If you're looking for a adjustable rear Lyman Sight, contact IMA. They had them, item XU1060 for $295.00 plus shipping.
The ones I got were almost brand new! The phone number is 908-903-1200. Web site is www.ima-usa.com.
But the sights are not listed there, but you can get their e-mail address and check-out some other goodies!
Hope this helps you.
Bill

I'll trade a nice 28 smooth barrel for one...i'm not gonna give that much for one...i'll find one cheaper....if i can get $4000 worth of thompson parts for $750 and get an L drum for free..i think i can find a lyman alot cheaper than that...lol....i know its not an original but are the new repro's kahr have anywhere near as good? i'm not above getting one of them until i find a lyman...Thx

I paid big bucks for a Lyman sight earlier this year. Now after shooting with it, I'm a little disapointed. It does look good though.

How'd Billy Crystal used to say it? "It's better to rook gewd, thahn to freel gewd"

In tangent mode, I can't even see the notch. I actually aim better with the actuator handle. In aperture mode the ladder rides up (automagically increasing elevation for you) The old WH sight actually worked better. If I did it all over again, I'd get an L sight.

LOL....to me there is no use for sights on a subgun....i can open eyed point shoot better than most people trying to use sights out to 100 yards...my personal opinion on sights on subguns is..either none at all or a ghost ring and theres always laser....only reason i want a lyman is to make my gun "correct" as they call it

Who needs a Lyman sight when you "spray and pray"?

The Kahr sights are not related to a Lyman,sort of like apples & oranges.

Smoker21, try Joe Manazzi at www.keystonearms.com He had some factory springs a few years back and helped me out with my Savage 28. He is a good source for TSMG (and other) parts. He is also a nice, honest, very reliable gentleman. Email him, he will respond.
