Bonehead Mistake

Took my buckstalker out for the first time today and had a great time at the range. I made some quick adjustments to the sights and finished up at the range.

Came home and cleaned it, everything was going smoothly until I thought to myself; "I could probably slide the elevation up just a little bit, it was hitting low earlier". 5 minutes later I over tightened the screw and snapped the rear sight

Silver lining; I was planning on putting a scope on it before muzzleloader season started so I just ordered a scope and rings!

Was it just the screw that crossway tightens the sight in place. If so finding a replacement shouldn't be that hard even if scope mounts are on the way.

Negative, the screw is still in one piece but the plastic rear sight is not

You know it might pay off to email the company. They have tons of extra parts and sometimes they're willing to give them away for free.
