Anybody know how big the little detent ball bearing is in the back sight windage knob. I have to get a few so when I drop the little ()*^& then I will have a spare.

I am replacing about 20 rear sights with tritium ones. Thanks.

you will not loose it, it is a decent size, i have done a bunch and never lost one, do removal over a dark colored towel, this will catch the ball for you, they are not under muchtension at all

Wow, that answered his question.

Out of the fifty or so A2 sights I've put together, I've lost two or three balls total. When dropped, they move very quickly and fall into a black hole, the same black hole that socks and combs fall into when lost.

Well thanks for the help. My garage floor swallows more stuff than you can imagine.
