    Does anyone know the correct sight leaf for a 66-74 mpi-km?

    Do you know where they are available?

    Thanks!

    If I recall correctly, the red colored markings on the sight leaf were used on the first couple years of production, then white.

    Easy enough to change as needed.

    Did they use red on the MPIK as well?

    AAOK also has the red version if that's what you feel you need

    Hard to find examples, but I believe they did use red digits on the milled MPiK/MPiKS.

    There are a couple photos of a red leaf on a cutaway milled u/f here:

    interesting. To make a long story short, I found a complete 72 kit and it has a 800m white leaf. the font seems smaller than whats shown in the links, but I will confirm that later. Looks like 72 had the white 800m.

    Thanks!!!!
