    Bushmaster M-4 Front Sight Removal...


    I'm kinda considering the removal of my frnt sight on my Bushmaster M4, but am also kinda scared to do it. I want to purchase an Eotech sight really soon, maybe June or so and I'd like to remove my carry handle, and add the MBUS Magpul folding sights. Should I keep the A-frame sight and just add the rear MBUS or remove it and do both front and rear MBUS? Does anybody have experience taking the A-frame sight off their AR-15's? Help...

    Keep the A2 front sight, unless you plan to add a low profile gasblock and a longer rail system.

    hmm. Maybe you should have waited and got an SR-556.

    Noway o the bumpfire, I'd shoot for 10 minutes and be out of ammo.

    I've noticed most AR's with Eotechs seem to still have the front sight on, so, I'll leave mine alone, don't wanna mess with a rifle that works.

    Not sure if this will help you out...

    I ran across it a few days ago and thought it was interesting...
