Brownell`s carries aftermarket inserts that will fit.

Yes, was looking at the Lee Shavers and noticed he had some for Refield Olympics. Since then another forum has offered to sell an original set.
Thanks!

For the group: other than the Shaver inserts, eBay is your best bet. FWIW, these are often misidentified.

Here are the diameters of some commonly found inserts:

Lyman 17A also fits Browning BPCR. .470" (12mm) dia.
Redfield/Alley - .550" (14mm) dia. Fits Redfield 65/66 and Alley globe sights.
Parker-Hale - .587" (14.9mm) dia.
Large Lyman/Anschutz - .675" (17.1mm) dia.
Redfield Olympic - .700" (17.8mm) dia.
Redfield International/Mid Tompkins - .769" (19.5mm) dia.

Another best bet is to post a request in the CMP forums. One of the members replied with a couple of sets to sell. EBay also seems to always have some for sale/auction as well.

I was in need of some for the International and the Olympic front sight. Luckily I talked to a fellow at Brownells who knew exactly what would work and they were in the catalog as well. Try that outlet.

I think I bought the last set Redfield had in stock while they were still located in Denver. 1978 as I recall.
