    As long as it's intended to mount to a freefloat rail it'll be fine.

    It's when you try and stick a rail on a gas block (which there are multiple heights, none standardized) where everything goes screwy.

    DD makes a front as well, Troy also makes the flip models.

    This is the issue that Mr. Murphy was describing. That upper will not take a standard height rail mounted front sight that is most common. You will need one specific for that gas block height.

    You'd have to call them and see specifically.


    Having dealt with DPMS at the professional level......don't expect a right answer the first time.
