Default Bushmaster C15 ORC sight HELP

I have a bushmaster c15 that came with a red dot. I put a 2 piece rail system on it. I want to keep the scope on and put some mapgpul rear flip sight followed with a A2 sight on front. Can I attach the A2 sight to the end of the 2 piece rail? Will it be efficient still?

Here is a photo of what I am trying to set up.

Do you mean a milspec A2 fixed sight with gas block? That's attached to the barrel not a rail. Why not get a rail mounted MBUS flip up to match the rear MBUS?

Not a fixed sight a2. Just A2 style. My whole plan backfired anyways. I am trying to have some sights plus my scope. I purchased some GM-FRS1 sights.

To tell you the truth, I just figured out I was putting them on backwards!!

I still don't like the fact that I have to put the front site on my two-piece rail, I wish I had one set up on the gas block already

BM (YHM makes it) has a flip up sight that fits over their low profile gas block - it's not mounted to the rail.

Sweet, I am going to have to check them out

Here is what I did. Don't know how sold I am on it. Can't shut cover on red dot. I put it on a raiser to see sights.
