I have an old S&W 66-1 that had a screwed up rear sight. The blade was dented up pretty good and the adjustment screw was broken. I got the gun in this condition and that was the only problem. It's a 66-1 that's pinned and recessed and I got it cheap so I can't complain.

Last week I got new S&W parts, the blade, the screw and the windage nut on the other side. There was no detent ball in the existing screw when I got it apart. Does anyone sell that part? It's usable now if I run the windage nut down tight and stake it after I sight it in and it will have what amounts to a fixed rear sight. But if I can get the detent ball I will.

I think Brownells has these parts...just installed a new screw and all the goodies ball/spring etc.

Supposed to use a new screw anytime you take these apart.
