General iron sight question
 
Ecently , i bought a dpms oracle and some magpul mbus gen 2 iron (plastic) sights. I mounted one to the rear and the other to my utg foregrip. Now it looks as if there's quite a height difference between the two sights. Any ideas on what I can do short of buying new sights? Thanks.

I took a look at a DPMS Oracle. It uses a railed gas block which sits lower and requires a special front site (taller than "normal" and not polymer).

foregrip as in the front rail system? the rails should be almost even across the entire top of the rifle. and the sights should be mounted right to that. not on any riser's or grips. perhaps im miss interpretating what your trying to say. a picture would be helpful.

if you have mounted your BUIS on the upper receiver and gas block and they are not at the same height than you need a taller front sight

You dont want to mount themagpul front to a gas block it will literally melt.

Is your front sight taller or shorter than the rear? If you mounted a reduced height gas block sight on a standard height rail it'll be way too tall. You'll need a standard height sight or move the tall sight back to the gas block.

Otherwise it'll be as described above.

I bought a utg handguard and it has 4 picatinny rails. The rear sight sits just higher than the front sighs thats mounted on the handguards, maybe a 1/2 inch and with sights thats alot of difference. By the way that front gas block with the pic rail on the oracle is uselss.

Thank you for the picture. Hate to say it but this is what happens when you mess w/ airsoft accessories.

What made the gas block "useless?"
