If running a red/green dot is there any benefit to running the rear sight at all?
Only if you also run a front sight .and. the optic fails.
All valid points. I guess the best solution would be a fold down rear sight and have the best of both worlds Was looking for more insight as I am newer to this style rifle. Always been a pistol / shotgun guy. Thanks again.
I just received my folding rear sight today for that very reason, I prefer a red/green dot after 18+ years of turkey hunting with one. The green dot is superior to red during the hours of civil twilight rise & set. No I won’t be hunting gobblers with my 9mm carbine.
the best ive found is TROY BATTLE SIGHTS. they hurt a lil to buy But worth it. dont buy off ebay. most those are knock off cheap.
you can get em fixed or folding, tritium or standard, HK or AR style front.
one question, what style rifle do you have…
Sub2K. Probably juts pick up the folding rear sight from here.
@Lunker Mcarbo folding rear sight, Peep or V and a Redlion folding front sight. RedLion sights accept AR front sight posts, so you can Run a Blitzkrig Luminescent /tritium sight post
redlion front folding sight
I have this setup on my Gen 1 SUB 2000 as well as my Gen II SUB 2000
I can recommend the Mcarbo Muzzle brake as well…
I challenge you to find a dot sight that will co-witness with the front and rear sight on a sub2k and still allow you to pick your head up off the pillow the next morning. Get a QD mount(a good one) dial the red dot in and forget about the stock sight. It is like the old Beatles song …No no no no I don’t blank no mo …
I may have a solution for you. I put on an MCARBO notch sight and use a TR-25 as my red dot. It co-witnesses with no problem. The added height of the notch site makes it easy to acquire your target. It is a little taller than the MCCARBO peep sight, as they tell you in there video. The target acquisition works because it aligns with the side shrouds on the front sight. I can put all my rounds in a 6 inch circle at 75 feet. For me that is exceptional. Hope this gives you an option to look at. The TR-25 is on a UTC QT 1/2 inch riser, using the stock rail. File the rail flat so it doesn’t rock.
Appreciate the advice . But I am a cheap MF L Since quick deploy is not a consideration considering that I live in the woods I used a Ozark 40 buck red dot that co-witnesses with my AR but not much else. Since my 70 year old eyes are lets face it 70 year old eyes I found a 2X red dot to mount on the AR and had the old cantilever Ozark in my sock drawer. Well Jest damn!! With a QD mount stuck on the SUB2K after zeroing it in at 50 yards and taking it on and off for about 250 rounds it holds zero. Oh yea… I had an old fiddle case from back in the day when I wanted to learn to play but since the arthritis got in the hands I stuck to the guitar but I figured out that the SUB2K fits in the case like it was made for it and with a Glock19, 17 and 18 mag. As Hickok 45 says … Life is good. Yea there is a Glock 18 but ya caint get em in this country.
