I have a M1858 pinfire Revolver built by E.Lefaucheux for the Swedish navy (designated M1863) which has had the front sight damaged. The original sights for these revolvers is a flat triangle topped with a bead, which is missing in my case. While I may not be able to reproduce the bead, I would still like to have a front sight of the correct height.

I have put 12 rounds through it using a 12mm pinifire kit from H&C Collection in France. It works great, although the cylinder starts to bind after the first cylinderfull.

Does someone have one they can measure? I think the 1854 models also have the same front sight.
