Need Help w/Front Sight
 
1 Attachment(s)
Hello everyone! I recently purchased a Bushmaster online to use as my patrol rifle. I was originally going to run an eotech alone on it but later found out that it's policy to have iron sights on the gun at all times. Right now I have the magpul moe hand guards on and I need to figure out what I can do on the front sight and I have no clue! I want the magpul rear flip up sight, then my eotech and a flip up sight on the front. Can someone tell me how I can make this happen easily with what I have on it right now? The first photo is the before picture how I bought it

Have you looked into a flip up sight that can be mounted on the gas block? I think that is one option. Maybe someone can chime in and confirm

Here's a gas block with raised rail. All you would need is a sight to mount on ithttp://www.bravocompanyusa.com/PRI-Gas-Block-With-Top-Picatinny-Rail-p/pri%2005-075-04%20gas%20block.htm

Change your gas block out to a front sight. Or one with a rail to add a collapsible site.

Hate to see you lose your hand guard, but replacing it with a quad rail may be another option.

Magpul make a flip up front that fits the moe hand guard or the gas block and it will co-witness.
