    I have a Universal M1 30 Carbine that needs the rear sight replaced on it. It looks like someone dropped the gun or hit the sight with a hammer to try to get it off. Any thoughts on where to find one?
  2. You might call or email CMP and ask if they have any parts lying around? I honestly have no clue, just throwing ideas out there.

    You could also join a few gun sites and place a wanted ad? I know GunBroker.com Online Gun Auction has a forum where you can place want ads. I'm sure others do as well. Maybe find a good M1 forum and do that? Good luck.

    If it is an earlier Universal, then any USGI rear sight should fit. They are available all over the place. Going rate is around $25 or so. If nothing else, you can get them on-line from Gun Parts Corp. Just google them. GB should also have some. Or you can try 81MM (Eddy Yuja) [email protected] He usually has things like that at a good price.

    Gun Parts Corp bought out Universal's remaining stock after they went out of business. They also carry GI parts. I'd think they are your best best. Tht's where I went when I was re-building a late model Universal and they had everything I needed. I haven't checked lately though.

    I just looked and they are still listing all the major parts, including those dreaded 2 spring slides and such.

    Good luck!!!!
