Default Where to find 3 rear iron sight "elevators"?

Hi Guys, I have been going over my old .22 rimfire rifles and need 3 "elevators" for the rear iron sights on 3 old Remington .22 rifles I have. I located one in my old parts and junk box but it is to thick to fit in the sights. Does anyone here have 3 you might sell to me or can you direct me to someone that might have them to buy? If needed I can mic the rear sight to measure the thickness that would work. They seem to be just cheap stamped out pieces of sheet metal.
Thanks....<><....

I've seen these at gun shows quite often where someone has an assortment of screws, sights, etc.

Midway has them for $1.99 each, your choice of .050" or .080" thick.

Like Vash said Numrich probably has them, but their prices usually run towards the high side (at least that's my opinion).

Thanks Guys, I will mic the slot in the rear sights and check the thickness I need. If anyone has one (or 3) to sell I would appreciate a response here, or even better a PM....<><....
