MP-40 parts

Been looking around, and looking for a rear sight ( basic flip-up type) for an MP-40. The one on mine broke off out in the woods, during a reenactment, ten-odd years back. The weapon is of original parts built onto a tube manufactured in the mid 90s, so historical value is minimal. I am guessing that the rivets, or peening of securing pins was weak to begin with, and I never noticed it gone til later that day.
The lack of the rear sight has not hindered it's accuracy...I just look right down the top of the receiver tube, towards the front sight. Rounds pretty much fall where they are directed! The "Quick Kill" techniques we taught at Mott Lake work with it as well...weapon melded with the extended left arm...point and click.
Anyhow, it is an obscure request, but someone may know...
