Opinions! On m&p

Discussion in 'Black Rifle Forum' started by 9mmmountaineer, Dec 3, 2012.

  1. Just got my Troy front sight, on my m&p gas block. I think something doesn't look right with it...

    Input please

    Yep, need to know. Pictures are even better.

    I'm assuming M&P OR. If you got the "gas block" Troy sight, it's the wrong one. Those are intended for gas blocks shorter than the receiver rail, whereas the M&P OR uses a same-height block.

    If you got a standard rail mounted Troy, though, you should be fine.
     
  4. Yeah sorry ment to put the pic up and just posted... But I seem to not be alble to post one. I'll have one on here tonight. I'm on apple products and I'll have to get on a laptop to post.

    Hopefully by the time I post I'll have my YHM phantom flash hider on too

    Upload the photo to somewhere like ImageShack and post it that way. Trying to upload directly to GT is nearly pointless.

    tinypic.com is the perfect storage vessel for one time use message board photos. Easy to use, no login needed, and they even give it to you with the img tags attached.

    The M&P15 OR uses a same-plane gas block, and needs a standard Troy front sight. If that is the same rifle the OP has, he doesn't need the gas block Troy sight.

    Try this one...

    It almost looks like there's something stuck between the sight and block, or something isn't machined right. Can you get another photo taken directly from side-on?

    In the meantime, try removing the front sight, check for any obvious bumps or obstructions, and reinstall the sight. When you do, make sure it's sitting flat on the rail before tightening it down.

    Looks better from the side on shots, but might be a bit tall. Where did you get the sight from? Got some kind of part number?

    You sure that's the right item number? It takes me to a discontinued set of night vision binoculars.
     
  13. 9-75266 is the correct one. They have it printed wrong on receipt but I reviewed previous orders
