Parts are available from the main page of this website. Gunbroker, or eBay.
The tall front sight blade could just mean that someone was shooting it as they normally shoot high at 100 yds. OR, now that I know the exact serial number, you might not - despite what I said earlier - have a real carbine. On the good side, you ARE "near" the range of numbers, but that whole general area is a real 'black hole' in the SRS records, so it would be hard to prove either way. Mine is not listed either, but being slightly higher actually has a few "84C" neighbors. Only one such arm (449309) listed is lower than yours.
On the other hand, funny looking front sights are a staple of bubba-faked "carbines". If you wish, you can email me some pictures at richardahosmerATcomcastDOTnet
