The sight is made into the gas lock.

You need a gas lock with the dovetail for a SCOUT height front sight and a standard aperture in the rear sight.

I experimented with many before I got it right.

The SEI gas lock pictured by killashrub will still require the taller sight, as well as some sort of muzzle device unless you want those threads exposed.

You can try it before disassembling the rear sight to replace the aperture, but I promise, the SOCOM aperture is very much larger than a standard.
