    I believe the current answer is "No". My understanding is that they have suspended production for the time being. I hope I am wrong, so you might want to call them to confirm.

    There should be a caveat after that ‘yes’ though.

    Last year they announced they were ‘suspending’ production of new sights. Reason inferred being that as US NRA had made optics legal for match rifles the market for new sights has shrunk significantly.

    Used Warners that get put up for sale don’t stay up for too long, #2’s (longer windage screws, most useful for long range) have brought upwards of $600 recently.

    I have been on a waiting list for a new Warner for over a year, as have 4 other guys I shoot palma with. No joy so far and really none expected. I ask guys on the US Palma Team and they don’t even know if he will make anymore. I would suggest you buy a Phoenix, so you have something to shoot and get on the wait list.

    Medesha has a pair of used Warner's on ebay right now.

    Phoenix doesn't have them on their website, not sure what that's about.

    Champions Choice has some PNW's in stock.

    Good luck,
    Jim

    Phoenix only makes the top mount sight now, no more side mounts. I have them on both of my tube guns. I felt lucky to find a very lightly used side mount for my conventional stock rifle. I like them.

    Thanks jim I have a rpa tracker now but I’m building a new tr rifle ... warner was my first choice but I hearblot of good things about the Phoenix so I’ll try one . The only thing though is the adjustments are opposite of the rpa .

    Phoenix's are made with either match or service direction knobs.
