Need SKS front site block

I just bought a Norinco SKS, and somewhere before me, they took off the front site block. It was replaced with a hunk of rubber hose, and a clamp on AR style front site. I would like to get the original front site assembly, complete with the folding bayonet. Problem is, after many searches on the interweb, every one I found that had them listed for sale were out of stock. Any ideas?

If you could do without the bayonet lug, here's a used one with a cut-off stub of the barrel still attached for $28.

My SKS's came with ground-down bayonet lugs, I think. Just as well, I would not be interested in swapping out enough parts with American-made replacement parts to satisfy federal law, 18 USC section 922r. I'll just keep my SKS in the same configuration as it was imported.

BUT, what about you placing a "wanted to buy" ad for some SKS owner who has scoped his rifle to sell you his front sight assembly?
Or, offer to buy an original Norinco front sight assembly with bayonet lug from somebody who would use the money to buy an American-made aftermarket replacement front sight assembly, perhaps one with an integral muzzle break or comp?

I've been looking, but nobody seems to have one they are willing to part with. I'd like to take it back to original.

Currently a couple on Ebay, says they are Russian, but they are all the same except for the Yugo's , a little pricey though. but they are complete.

I have a paratrooper length barrel I bought off Ebay a few years ago, was going to do a barrel swap on a regular length sks , ended up finding a paratrooper length sks at a good deal, I still have the barrel, its the pinned style, not screw in, if someone wanted to swap one out.
