Rear sight options?

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.

If it is a range toy , I see no reason. If it is for self defense , I agree with @Dred

All valid points. I guess the best solution would be a fold down rear sight and have the best of both worlds :slight_smile: 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.
