magpul question for the AR-15
I have been thinking about changing my forearm grip to a magpul to make it lighter however i have the gas block with the rail on it. can you put a flip up style A2 sight on the rail that will open with the magpul handguard?

I have a Magpul handguard on my AR, but it has the fixed A2 sight. Just from looking at it, it looks like you would have the needed clearance for the flip up sight.

There's a good bit of room in that area.

Can't be a plastic flip up like the magpuls. They will melt.

Well first you've got to provide more information, we have no idea what you have. For instance, do you have a handguard end cap inside the gas block? The MOE handguards need it. As far as a flip up on a gas block, they do make them but what height rail do you have? Too many unknown variables here.
