The night sight's that flip up are actually fiber optic. You may need to clean the filter holes on top of the flip up front sight, and the rear ones are on the side of the flip up sight. You will probably have to clean the sights to even see them when you flip them up. They're rather old and most are full of debris...which leads people to not understand what they are or even there. Nice rifle, nice range, little heavy...you can take off the grenade launcher and sights, and replace the threads showing with a muzzle suppressor...sights require a little grinding and some cutting, but removable. There are all kinds of after model stocks available, some are pretty sweet...but still, a longer, heavier, beefier, rifle...hence the AK.
