i have a daisy model 25 and at some point i broke off the rear sight Cryi'm not sure how but i'm leaving to go to my cabin which i can not order things to on friday, so my thinking is i'll fabricate one at my cabin or tonight the only problem is i don't have any dimensions so is any one would be willing to take the time to give me the dimensions for it i would greatly appreciate it.

Think I might pull up some pictures of the 25 until one clearly showed the rear sight. Search Daisy No. 25 on Yahoo.
Should be hundreds of pictures from all angles. Let us know how that went.

I have a 70s vintage 25 and a new one with the peep.  Is your 25 one of these?
I'll measure it right away if yours is like either of mine.

I wasn't doing anything right now so I guessed that my older 25 is what you want dimensions for.
 
Length 2.5 in.
Width 3/4 at rear tapes toward the front with is nearly pointed.
The notch windage adjustment portion is 7/8 from front near the elevation screw the upward rear
notch bend.  The height of the bend is 3/8".
 
I made a metal square and drilled a 1/8" hole for a peep and JB Welded it to the original rear sight.
This helped my aging eyes shoot the gun a bit better.
 
Hope this helps.  If you need more data, let me know.
