Navy Gas Lock Front Sight

I'm new here and to the M1A. I'm looking at getting the Navy Gas Lock Front Sight and the Vortex flash hider for my Scout. Any reason not to? Other brand options for a similar set up?

The only drawback I can see is a slightly shorter sight radius (if you plan to use the irons).

Jon Wolfe just came out with a gas lock front sight adapter that looks pretty trick. You may want to look into that one.

I've got that setup on a 16 and really like it. You may have to fool around with different bight front sights though.
