Default Riser for Dpms oracle ar15

I'm in need of a 1/4 inch riser for my low profile gas block. Any suggestions?

You'll probably have to find a front sight that is build to compensate the height difference.

1/2" is the shortest I've seen. If it is for your front sight, you may look into a gas block sight. They are taller than a regular sight. I believe the riser I saw was from YHM.

YHM makes a front sight that is made to go on your front gas block and compensate for height difference without needing to use a riser. It'll make for a better set-up.

Also available at Midway USA, Cheaper than Dirt and other retailers.

YMH also makes a 1/4" riser if that's what you really need.
