BTW.....a plastic M16 muzzle cover just fits over it, but it is a bear to get off.
Overall, I would say that it is working out rather well, and would recommend it along with the gas lock front sight.
My next build will also have one, but this time, I am going with the dovetail version, and an SEI tritium "bar style" front sight arrangement.
Note: I thought long and hard if I wanted to go with the LRB M25 receiver for this build, but decided on the M14SA instead, as I have faith in the Bassett mount if I decide to add optics to the equation.
