    I removed the front battle sight post a few weeks back to leave room for the red dot optic.....and I lost the goddam front sight and nut/screw assembly!!! I upgraded to a nice red dot scope and it would make a PERFECT co-witness if I can get the front sight post re-installed.

    Anyone with a 995ts thats willing to part with their front sight post and the screw/nut that goes with it if you are not using yours? Thanks

    I have a spare if you want it. I noticed a couple of scratches on the base of my sight post when I first got my carbine ad called mom, she sent me a brand new one so I still have the original which I don't need.

    Pay shipping or pick it up and it's yours

    Here's a pic of the scratches on the bottom. The rest of the sight is perfect.

    Hipoint makes the crapiest sights around. I have the .45 carbine. I would give you my sights but I raged on them with a hammer! Your better off with straight optics.

    I have a sweet optic scope for this cheap little carbine....but I would love to co-witness the front sight and land that red dot on the sight notch. The iron sights are actually pretty good

    Mine would not zero no matter what. At 25 yards dropping 6-10". Maxed out the adjustment to get it that close.

    I did a very basic test and lined up the center of my scope with the very top tip of the front iron sight. It was pretty damn close. By my estimates it will be relatively easy to zero the optic and manually adjust the iron sight until I get a co-witness.

    Oh, yeah I noticed that when zeroing my irons that the rear sight seemed to jump around a bit. My zero was also off slightly and wouldnt hold. Said screw it & ripped it off!
