Beretta 81, .32ACP, Who Makes Sights for it? Login/Join

As the title says, I picked up a Beretta 81 in .32 ACP that was former Italian police issue. It is is excellent mechanical shape, cosmetically a fair amount of wear on the bluing and grips. I want to replace the absolutely worthless set of sights on it. The front is fixed so maybe a brass beed will be added or some paint. Any idea on who makes a replacement rear sight? I have tried Brownells and MidwayUSA and no luck.

There really aren't any modern options beside Tool Tech for the 80 series Berettas.

Not really worth the trouble IMO.

If it were mine, I'd call Novak's.... There seems to be a lot of skill in that shop. Even though their website doesn't specify your gun, I'd bet they can still put sights on it.

They did a very nice job of installing/machining the sights in my Argentine copy of a Browning HiPower ( had to machine a dovetail for my front sight). I just had to send the slide, so shipping was cheap, too !

Mine came with fixed square notch one white dot under white dot sights.

They don't seem totally useless.

What kind are on yours?

Mine are black on black with the rear being rather rusty (SN: D597XXX). Other than that, the gun is in pretty good shape with just bluing and grip wear from handling and the holster.
