Does anyone else make a Same Plane Aperture Rear Sight other than the XS Sight Company?

The "Big Aperture" on the XS Sight is .230 inches in diameter. I want a same plane aperture where the "big" aperture is about .190 and the small one .090.

I hear that "Sully" of the Defensive Edge was going to market one, however there is nothing on his website and I have not been able to contact him via the telephone or at his Email.

Accuracy Speaks markets one - where the aperture hole can be drilled out to the diameter you prefer. It is marketed for competition shooters, but looks like it would suit my pruposes. However, I have not been able to contact them either via Email. I want to make sure that thier rear aperture is offset to account for the 1/4 turn when you flip the aperture on the windage screw.

Thanks Chris

A lot of people offer same plane aperture sights. If you are looking for just the aperture, I am sure someone makes it; but not sure who. You might try callling ARMS or Troy since both of them sell same-plane aperture sights and may be able to point you toward just the aperture.

I am looking for just the aperture, not a new rear sight system. From what I understand both ARMS' and Troy offer a same plane aperture on there folding rear back up sights.

Yes.. this would be the type of apertures that I want - but only the aperture. Even if they would sell just the aperture I dont think they would mount into a standard A2 sight assembly.

The ARMS #40A uses a standard A2 aperture in its sight assembly, so a same plane aperture from the #40A should work in a regular A2 sight.
