The Model 52 ladder sights come up for sale on EBAY on a regular basis. Sometimes you can get a pretty good deal on them. There are several on their website now.

There was a nice one on the Shopper here a while back. I wrote the guy and never got an answer. He wanted $100 for it. Big Larry

There was a ladder sight on Ebay a few days ago and it had the sight aperture that had the additional peep hole so you could take aim with the ladder folded down. I always wondered how those worked in the real world application, but the one I saw was priced out of my pay range.

If the screws are original, they can be straightened back out, remove both screws and tension plates. Put one screw back in and screw it down to you feel resistance. Then using a soft face hammer lightly tap it in the direction it needs to go to get the bend out of it. It usually doesn't take much to move it. Keep repeating as needed until it screws all the way in. Then do the same with the other side. Use good lubricate to help ease the frictions.

I bought a complete 82A sight on Ebay a little over 2 weeks ago.I did rather well,$53 + just under $4 for shipping.
They can be had for a decent price if you're patient and do an Ebay Watch for them.

Screw pitch

Does anyone know the pitch of the windage adjustment screws on a 82A? It has to be either 36 or 40 as I have tried 32.

Sight screws...............

Try Wendell at Outback Gun Parts, he has 52 sights and parts and may be able to supply the screws you're looking for.
