Front Sight for Picatinny Rail or Gas Block

  • 1887

Nothing fancy here, just a front sight that mounts to a picatinny rail.

If you're putting this on a long handguard or other rail that is in-line with your Flat-Top Upper Receiver's picatinny rail then you'll want the Short  sight. This is the same height as most back-up iron sights.

If you've got a gas block with a picatinny rail that is lower than the rail on your flat-top upper (usually about 0.22" lower, or 0.9" over the barrel bore centre), you'll want the Tall sight to compensate for the lower picatinny rail.

  • Cast steel
  • Adjustable elevation with the standard AR-15 sight tool
  • Weight: 77g
  • Dimensions: 35 x 46 x 53mm (L x W x H) (Tall) or 35 x 46 x 46mm (Short)

You get:

  • (1) Picatinny/weaver front sight of the chosen size

    Compatible with:

    • Weaver and Picatinny rails (quad rails, clamp on rails, gas block rails)
    • Carry handle-style rear sights

    Installation Difficulty:

    Tools required: Meaty fingers or possibly a flat head screw driver. I'd just use my hands to prevent over-tightening.

    Notes: For reference, the Tall sight has the sight deck about 1.35" over the pic rail. The Short sight, it's about 1.13".
