I just bought a S&W 686-3 with an 8-3/8" barrell with the adjustable front sight. I believe its called a Silhouette?
It has a scope mount on it, but I would like to put a rear sight on, but I'm having trouble finding one, and not sure which one I would need.
Any ideas where to find one?
Anyone know what one I need (how tall?)?

Thanks

A rear sight assembly that fits an L frame S&W is what you need. Look on ebay and gunbroker.com. The gun parts sites that I know of seem to be out.

Call S&W Monday and they will sell you the right one.

Forget eBay and Gunbroker unless you want to start a sight collection of the wrong ones.

Millet use to make of bunch of 'em aftermarket for all the frame sizes
I have a couple of their adjustable white outline rears on S&Ws, like 'em
Have not looked at their website in a long time, though

be real careful you know just what height rear sight you want, though, it is easy to pick the "wrong" one
if going that route, might need to e-mail 'em or call, your specific model style gun info re: "how tall ?"
or call S&W like rc said

Don't email Smith and Wesson. Call them. Works much better. They will ask you questions (model, serial number, etc) and get you the sight you need. They are not as fast as some places like Midway, but you will get your new sight in 7 to 10 days.
