I would like to purchase a .471 rear sight plug for my Model 72 22 magnum. My gunsmith had to drift out the rear sight of my Ithaca Model 72 Saddlegun in 22 magnum to mount the scope close to the barrel. He could not find a blank to fill the empty dovetail. A "standard" 3/8 dovetail blank for a Henry would not work because it is larger, .471 to be exact. My gunsmith could make a plug. However, it would be cheaper and quicker if I could buy one which may need only a little filing and bluing. I could not find a .471 blank made by Skinner, Marbles or Lyman. Any suggestions??? HELP!!! Thanks.
