Thanks, yeh I also think the folding sights dont cut it, I think they are a tacticool fad. I also looked at some of those sight posts you mentioned, there are alot of options, however, it appears that CMP will only accept standard square A2 sight posts for most of there matches, there are exceptions though. Good thing is I can always change the sight post to fit the competition without having to have multiple rifles. I found some very expensive Lyman Globe Sights, which I believe I will slowly begin working into after some time getting my basic A2 sight fitted AR going. BTW.....as for the "match grade MAKO group A2 carry handle".........DONT EVER BUY IT. This thing is a total piece of junk and MAKO should stop promoting this crap if they want to keep their good name. The product was a GLOBAL MILITARY GEAR (GMG) MAKO Match Grade A2 rear sighted AR CARRY HANDLE...aka a piece of metallic garbage. The flip sights were floppy and didnt snap into place firmly, the MOA adjustment didnt adjust every click and the "Hard Anodized Coat" was just some black tractor paint slopped onto this poor excuse for a carry handle.So dont but it. And maybe someone should write MAKO and explain this.
