Abilene 44 magnum

Does anyone know if you can still get a set of sights for an Abilene 44 magnum? I have had no luck finding anything online. Only website I found was sold out of the sights. Scope mounts, sights, anything?

As kcub indicated, contact Lee Martin on his web site singleactions.com. If anyone can help it's Lee or one of the forum members.

clelaj ......... here's a photo of my Abeline in .44 mag w/ Magnaloy (brushed chrome) finish, purchased NIB around 30 years ago. I think it's a really fine piece, comparable in quality to todays FA's.

Thanks

Thanks guys. I emailed Lee and he said you can't really get them anymore. But if he saw anything he would let me know. I'm going to keep looking and posting on different forums. I have not uploaded a pic yet but I will as soon as I get it back. I had a gunsmith trying to figure out something for the sights to no avail.

It looks a lot like a Ruger Super Blackhawk rear sight. Have you tried one?
