I want mine to look like the one in the second picture maybe not the twisted barrel but w/o the rear sight post. How hard of a job is it?

You mean front sight?

FrontierTCB 03-18-2013 07:49 PM

Confused. Sure you have the right pics?

new_kid 03-18-2013 07:53 PM

Yea my bad

new_kid 03-18-2013 07:54 PM

Basically I want to get rid of the iron sights front and rear. How hard?

You'll need a new handguard probably free float. Low profile gas block and possibly a new gas tube. You'll need an AR multiwrench and punch set.

Ok we'll the front or rear not sure the one closest to the butt stock is already off I have a rail on it I'm talking about the one closest to the barrel.

I suggest you either do some research into the parts listed and watch a bunch of YouTube videos to familiarize yourself with the platform or bring it to a gunsmith.

i hope you dont shoot the rifle using that sight post as a read sight.. that could cause problems for your shoulder and such.. JK

if you are having a diffacult time with just naming parts, your best bet is to have a gunsmith make the change for you. or you could look for an entire new upper half, and sell your current one.
