Adam, at HKparts has some....
i just purchased a Century C93. The rear sight is impossible to turn. I did a search on the forum and learned how to remove the sight. Upon removing the sight, I noticed that the spring was installed but was missing the ball bearing. Are the bearings available anywhere? Or is there an easily obtainable alternative in the same size?
Buy more than one. The little bastages have a way of disappearing, carpet monster gets'em.
No douchey list of firearms here, but thanks for checking anyway.

Good advice about Adam at HKParts having them, AS WELL as buying MORE THAN ONE!! If you are in a hurry, an industrial parts/equipment supplier or anyplace else that sells bearings might have them (small ball bearings). Just don't tell anyone that you are need it for a gun repair, since then they will ALL say they don't sell gun parts. Ball bearings are generic, however, and will fit many different applications. Just measure the hole with a caliper and get the size, then allow a couple of thousandths (INCH MEASUREMENTS HERE) and you know the correct size. It doesn't have to be an exact fit, at least until you get one from Adam. Like hkshooterusp says, the evil carpet monster does indeed gobble them up (and lots of other SMALL gun parts). If you can, try working on a clean white towel placed flat on a hard surface . Stuff won't roll so bad then.
Don't forget to check the bolt gap BEFORE trying out the gun!! Also keep checking after each shooting session. My C-93 bolt gap shrank from .017" to .005" after TEN rounds.

Thanks for the help. I will order a few ASAP. I did check the bolt gap and looks like I am about .010. Hopefully I will get to try it out this week. The Century manual was a little unclear, but, I am guessing that once sighted in for a known distance, the different apperatures are for different ranges. For example does the 2 represent 200 meters, 3 for 300 etc.?
Thanks for the tip on sighting in. If this rifle works, hopefully with few issues, I hope to use it at the Camp Perry Pop up match this fall. Your tip sighting in may be just the ticket as I believe the targets renge from 25 to 300 meters.
I'd order a set of +2 rollers if you are starting with 0.010" bolt gap when you order the ball bearings. I don't think a +4 set would be a bad idea too.
I was thinking the same thing. My plan was to shoot a few hundred rounds first then order the either the +2 or +4 rollers.
