Well. The one thing that I really can’t stand about my newly upgraded S2Ks are the front sights. The HiViz fiber optic posts I installed are an improvement, but not much. I don’t see any indication that MCARBO will be coming to the rescue any time soon with a quality folding front sight, so I am considering the Red Lion R12 folding front sight for both of my guns, at least until MCARBO comes up with something better.
Has anyone done the install? I have the muzzle break on both of mine and I assume I have to go through the hassle of taking these off to put the RL 12s on.
If you did the install, was it worth it? How do they shoot and are they easy to adjust? Do they hold zero?
If they do what I think they will, I should be able to put a higher riser on my RDSs so that I can be more heads up and not have my cheek on the tube (yes, I have the MCARBO bolt tube sleeve). A good co-witness is great, but folded front and back sights mean a clean scope picture that I prefer, especially on a higher riser. Is this a correct thought?
4). Are there any other options you can think of? I really think that Chris and crew did a great job on the folding rear sight and put them on both of my guns, but it really doesn’t address the toy-like piece of cheap plastic crap on the front of the gun. I love using iron sights, prefer it really inside 50 yards (Getting closer as my eyes get older ), but I really don’t want to hassle with trying to get those Factory “things” right when a decent RDS will be much more effective.
Any information y’all can provide will be appreciated!
