I’ve got an old beater Russian  sks somewhere in the last 60 years the rear sight was lost or taken off for some reason.

Are all sks rear sights interchangeable?

Sources for a replacement sight?

Rather not buy off eBay but if that’s my only option guess I’ll do it.

I am 99.9% sure they are the same other than recreating original. I used to throw them away, I wish I saved some for you.

@1911greg (not sure if cheap accounts can at someone)

I have a Norinco blade, It has a minimal, minimal bend to it but you could easily flatten back with a vice. You’ll need the pin and the spring but it’s yours if you want it

Actually, I was wrong, you’ll just need the spring, the ears are the pin.

And wrong again, the bend is an optical illusion due to the slider. It’s flat and gtg.

If that doesn't work out for you, go to Liberty Tree Collectors LLC and they sell rear sight assemblies NOS still in cosmoline for a decent price.

It’s on the way and in USPS hands now. Should be there by Tuesday or so.

Post pics when you get it installed.

Glad you got the sight so quickly.

Also, AIM has sight leaf springs for ridiculously cheap.
