    Good morning
    Have been trying to find one of these with no luck
    However as Williams make the rear sight I thought I would try the front sightS they have
    This looks identical

    It's probably the correct ramp, but the problem is that it comes in four different heights. Maybe somebody on the forum has a P72 or M78 and can measure it. I'd be interested in that measurement as well - I have a P72 that is drilled and tapped for sights but doesn't have them.

    You could also check eBay - sometimes they will have sights taken off a Sako.

    I have one removed from a M78 sporter. From the bottom of the sight curve (that would be the top of the barrel) to the top of the flats the front sight dovetails into is .387 in.
    Looking on midway the closest size they list is .375.
    I measured several different ways and could not get any measurement to perfectly match the measurements listed on midway. So I am not sure how and where they measure them.
