Wilkinson Arms Terry 9mm

Hi,
I recently bought a Wilkinson Arms Terry 9mm carbine. It's a very sturdy, well built gun. However, with non adjustable sights and a short sight radius, it's hit or miss even at 25 yrds. You have to charge it very crisply to avoid an initial double feed but otherwise I only had one jam after 300 rounds. I have a few questions I hope some fellow owner(s) may be able to answer:
- Are adjustable rear sights available?
- Was a aftermarket or original manual ever published?
- Is there an aftermarket longer stock available?
- What was the period of manufacture?
- How many were made?
I hope someone can shed some light on these interesting guns.

Wilkinson designed and made several firearms, named for his daughters.
There was a Linda carbine and a Terry carbine.
There was also Diane, Linda, and Sherry pistols.

About all I could find on the company is:
Previous trademark established circa 1996 and manufactured by Ray Wilkinson circa 1996-1998 (limited production), and by Northwest Arms located in Parma, ID circa 2000-2005.

Apparently, the carbine was designed by J & R engineering of Southern California, and Wilkerson redesigned it.
The J&R/Wilkerson was made as far back as the 1970's, so the above 1996 date doesn't seem to be correct.

Gun Digest Book "Firearms Assembly/Disassembly: Law Enforcement Firearms" Part Six, has a full disassembly section on the carbine.

There are no adjustable sights, different stocks or other accessories ever made for these guns. Production was limited and no else ever made anything for them.
The only "accessory" is apparently Browning 9mm Hi-Power magazines can be used in the carbine if you alter the magazines lock notch to lock into the carbine.
