I called Browning about that very issue a few months back.
The nice lady laughed and said that I should've called 20 years ago.

There were supposed to be 3 different heights of MK II sights to allow for some adjustment in elevation. I have been unable to find a source for any of them.

That's not good. I'm tired of having the same old "throw Novak's on it". I want something that looks original and really looking at restoring this pistol fully. I'll call around now to find a set.

mk 2 sights

Hi C77. I have a couple of rear sights for the Mk 2 BHP size 1 and 2 , size 2 is in mint condition, size 1 has a dent on one of the ears, but you could probably sort that out. You are welcome to both of them. send me your mailing address and I will send them on. Regards Ron

Bought some FN plastic stocks from him. He shipped them before he got my money; a great guy. Stocks were far nicer than he modestly described.

Sorry Ron I just read this. Thank you sir. I was really wanting to restore this MK II but someone used the rear sight as a hammer. I'' IM my address to you sir. You sure you don't want anything for them? At least for shipping?

Thank you,

Mark

The Harrison Retro makes a good start. Can be cut down nicely.
