what kind of rear sight on P16 limited?

I have a Para ordnance P16 limited with the factory adjustible rear sight. It looks like a bomar with a similar cut in the slide. It may be a LPA rear? Its bent and I'd like to replace it. Does anyone know what kind I can use without have to do any milling?

The adjustable rear sight cut on Para guns is the LPA cut.

If you're using the pistol for combat I'd suggest a Novak Ghost Ring with a white front (tritium or epoxy dot.)
Your LPA cut would need to be milled out and a piece silver soldered in which is alot of work (it just barely shows) but I'd suggest against it. The Bomar (?) could have the edges rounded and the notch widened and they are a fine sight!

Thanks, I'll see if I can find one from Brownells. The pistol is for matches only.
