I am pretty sure the standard TC front sight was used on a white mountain, ebay has them pretty often.

Thanks Eric

I have a sight for it,  but it is raised off the barrel. I'm not sure if they had different styles, but I believe they may have. The barrel is round where the front sight is. I might be able to fix this one, but was hoping to just get teh coorect sight.

What about filing off the bottom of the sight base so it goes deeper into the dovetail?
