    Spinoff of "my AR is on the way" thread...

    Had a great time at a private range today! The only mods I've done are a Magpul AFG & some rail covers. Got sighted in from a bench & while I was having a hard time hitting a 3" square at 100 yds, I consistently put holes in a plastic bottle from a knee at around 75 yds...?

    Also shot my Glock 27, then with a 9mm barrel, my buddy's G19, my Rem 870 (rifle sights with slugs, pretty darn precise at 30 yds!), 9mm Colt 1911, .45-cal Colt 1911... we brought his Columbian wife & my Venezuelan girlfriend & they did REALLY well, despite it being their first time handling guns... before the virtual leghumping starts, pics will follow... :tongueout:

    So I've got a question...

    I LOVED the EOTech on my buddy's AR. An optic of some kind is definitely in my future. Now, once I swap to BUIS, how do I replace the fixed front sight? I'm not concerned with knocking out the pins & all that; what I'm wondering is, what do I do with the gas tube?!? Is there a back-up sight base that I can install that accepts the gas tube? Please be easy on me, this is an entirely new platform to me... I just learned how to break it down to the bolt today.

    Thanks!

    ...follow up... is what I'm looking for a "front flip-up sight with gas block"? Something along those lines?

    Seriously, just don't. You've already got a rugged, dependable, front sight and gas block. Put the RDS or whatever on and run it. You'll find you don't even notice the front sight in there.

    If, after shooting it a while you decide you absolutely can't live with it, I usually build with the PRI flip up. I don't think that will be the case though. :D

    That's a good tip, I suppose. It can't hurt to try that & go one step at a time... thanks!

    P.S., just watched a video on the Brownells website that shows how to do that when I feel like tackling it...

    My advice: leave the front sight fixed and go with a raised EoTech giving a 1/3 co-witness. That's what I did (and I had no front sight originally so I could have easily gone fixed or folding). The front sight won't be a distraction at all.
