    .22 OMT Front Sight Screw Size

    Picked up a nice 1st year .22LR Officers Model Target but as is common with the early Officers Models: the front sight elevation adjustment screw has gone missing sometime over the past 90 years. (This is the screw in-line and just above the bore)

    I know where to get replacements for the .38’s but the .22’s use a different/smaller sight and screw (I believe barrowed off the Police Positive Target .22).

    Does any one happen to know where I can find a replacement .22 OMT elevation adjustment screw? Or maybe know the thread size to have one made?

    Thanks in advance!
    Quality over quantity: there's a reason that new plastic fantastic brass flinger of your's needs 15 rounds and my old D.A. only needs six.

    About all I can find is Jack First has the front sight adjustment spring.

    https://jack-first-gun-parts.myshopi...t-sight-spring

    They do carry the large size front sight locking screw, but not a small size, and I think these are the side locking screws not the adjustment screw.

    I need one as well, along with a rear sight blade so I'm signing into this thread.

    I believe the required elevation screw is the same size as the Woodsman 1st Series screw of which I stock.
    PM me if you desire.

    Thanks to Tom (prewoodsman) the 1st year .22 OMT now has the proper elevation adjustment screw and the old girl is ready for a day at the range.
