    Alright guys! I just bought an AR-15 pistol and dont really want to put a red dot on it. I would like to stick with just iron sights. I am looking for something low profile and I am not sure the best route to go. Does anyone have any experience with an AR pistol and installing iron sights? Any help would be appreciated!:wavey:

    I would go with Daniel Defense or LMT fixed sights

    That would be a good quality inexpensive idea!

    Sounds good to me! I will throw on some magpuls and do some realistic training! Zig Zagging helps CTaggart.

    I would give these a try. I used them as a side sight on a three gun rifle for a time. Seems like they would work great on a pistol. JP short range sight.

    I put together an 11" pistol a couple years ago. It had the regular front sight tower with a flattop receiver. For a rear sight I used a LaRue like this one: http://stores.homestead.com/Laruetactical/Detail.bok?no=29

    I found I didn't really care for AR pistols and sold it. It was a good settup, though, for what it was.
