Front Sight Post Upgrade


#1

Any suggestions for a front sight post upgrade for a gen 2? I hear that it’s a standard AR post. What are my options?


#2

I went with a Big Dot white tritium insert front sight post from XS. Works great.


#3

Goggle it’ and look at the great improvements out there From Large Green dots, to Orange Triangles and White ones I like these Ideas.

@Italianhorn,
That’s the one iam running on my gen 2 S2K.40
What are you thoughts do you like yours?


#15

You’ll lose the ability to fully fold it unless you want to take that sight off every time.


#16

@wedge I don’t fold mine anyways because of USPSA and I don’t trust swivel mount or red lion to maintain zero.


#17

@Kona,
I was considering doing a build with the Red Lion forend. I pretty much put a red dot sight on everything. If you have had negative experiences with the red lion forend I wouldn’t mind hearing about it.


#18

@kas67 My buddy has the red lion on his and it adds weight. It also is a moving piece that could possibly compromise zero. My current setup is never folded and my dot is never moved. I’m a minimalist kinda guy and believe if factory works then stick w it.


#19

@Kona,
Understood,thanks for the intel on the Red Lion. Always good to here the negatives with the positives. I saw your weapon on the other thread how does it shoot are you finished with it.


#20

@kas67 runs lights out. Just waiting on the brake and trigger bar. If they ever make a .45 sub I’ll start over on that one but the 9 is basically done.


#21

@Kona,
Cool, Do you have the skill set to work on the weapons yourself. Or are you like me and contract it out, if something goes wrong I like being able to scream at my gunsmith haha.
