My sister is executor of my mother's will, do I have a right to see it?

We have never gotten along and my Mom mentioned that she had left antiques to me in her will but now my sister won't let me see it. Aren't executors supposed to send copies?

You do not state whether or not your mother is still living. If she is living it is her decision to allow you to see the will. If she has passed it the will is required to be filed with the Probate Court. Your sister has no power over your mother's things until the Probate Court grants her that power. If she has not filed the will with the court you can file to open your mother's estate. You would say that you beleive there is a will but that you do not have a copy and have not seen a copy. If your sister has filed the will in the probate court you can ask the clerk of the court for a copy.
