Rear sight for Diana 34 costs almost 15% of the whole gun?

Fella at my club broke his rear sight on his Diana 34 TO6 Classic in .22.  Wanted me to get a replacement.

Major vendor has them for sale for $41 shipped (out of stock).  That is quite a price for a rifle that runs $280.

Keep your old sight when you scope your gun.  You don't want to have to buy them again.

Seems like the pricing on car parts, the sum of the parts are worth far more then the car.

Yeah, replacement sights aren't cheap... Years, ago I bought a FWB-124 (missing the front sight) and an old model Diana 45 (missing both the front and rear sight) from a local pawn shop... both rifles had cheap scopes on them.

I pretty much always use scopes, but I wanted the rifles complete so I wanted the correct sights... I got the FWB-124 from Beeman (this was around 1997), and the Model 45 sights from a local airgun shop (sure miss that old shop).

I forget exactly what I paid, but they weren't inexpensive, especially considering what I paid for the rifles since they were used.

When I remove sights to mount a scope, I always keep them in a little bag and labeled what gun they came from... I wish everybody would do that, but bad stuff often happens when the owner dies or forgets what he did with the sights... or if the gun is stolen... then the owner probably sells the sights somehow, like ebay, or they end up in a junk drawer.
