AR sights

Post by Hardball » Wed Feb 06, 2013 1:47 am

I have a RRA Predator Pursuit long barrel. It has the A2 lower including changes to make the lower CMP legal. I have had a RRA NM A4 on order for a year now. Still no word.

Are there add on sights for the RRA Predator Pursuit that are like or near like the sights that will be on the NM. I would like to begin working with irons as close to NM as possible. Even though the rifle would not be CMP legal, it would suffice for training.

Does your front gas block have a section of rail on it or is it a low profile style? If you have picatinny rail on top of you gas block, or your free float tube for that matter, you can put any of the detachable sights on your gun. Like a detachable carry handle with a2 sights and a matching front post.
The national match sights have a skinnier front post and a smaller apature for the rear, I am sure those are still widely available.

Here are some options for quality sights.

I don't know if this is of interest to you, but I have a 'micro sight' on my RRA
NM A2 in place of the rear peep sight. I like it:

The two Michiganders diss'd a Michigan company. These guys are pretty good. You can get their stuff on Amazon.

Finally got sights and a scope mount for the RRA Predator Pursuit. I bore sighted the scope and checked it on target. I am going to like this rifle. Next time out to the range I will bore sight the irons and shoot out to 200yards. Now I got to load up some 69 SMKs. Still waiting for my RRA NM A4. Soon I hope.

Big Chief or Pioneer, that other stuff is cane sugar from who knows where. Made in Michigan from beets grown in Michigan, made and raised by Michiganders.
You have great day and shoot straight and may the Good Lord smile on you.

After dissing Michigan sugar I may have to sneak across the border on my next trip up. I did live in Louisiana where lots of folks made a living by raising cane.

Well, now that I think about it, I may have been involved in some shenanigans when I was younger. Maybe even when I'm older too?

I can see your nose returning to normal, the truth does hurt?
