Double rear leaf sights?

I just was gifted a CVA percussion double in .50 and while it has a front sight, the double rear folding leaf sight is missing. Pedersoli has put this double rear on its Kodiaks as well. Anyone know where I might find one?

For giggles, Midway is clearing out Hevi-Shot Hevi-X turkey loads at just over $6 per 5, but this load does not get nearly the raves that the Federal TSS does. The shot is much softer than tungsten and being No. 6, the patterns are much less dense.
