No problem guys. Just figured I'd put the answers to the most common questions in one place. If anyone has anything else to add to this just let me know. Also, I made sure all the pics worked at my job, so they should be viewable by everyone. If you can't see any of them, try refreshing the page. If you still can't see them, let me know and I'll host them on another site.

Really good information however, my question is, as a poly-tech M14 owner, is it possible to put on an "after-market" rear sight? I have a strange feeling that a prior owner jacked up the rear sight, is a royal pain to sight in.

How do I know which front sight is the right one? I am hitting somewhere around 8" high at 25 yards with the rear sight all the way down on a Socom 16.

When I checked Midway USA, they had only 2 to choose from, a tritium with a ghost ring, and a Kensight, but neither gave the dimensions for the front sight post height.

Rear Sight on M21

I will be taking delivery of my M21 next week and have been exploring various mounts, rings and scopes which I will probably have a gunsmith work on. I've encountered a problem that I did not see addressed in this thread, which, by the way is excellent. I have tentatively settled on a troy battle rail mount. In reading about it, it seems that the mount leaves room for use of the iron sights (which I definitely want to keep as an option), but the rear sight must be removed. I have heard a about pop-up sights, but know nothing about them or their accuracy. Any advice would be appreciated.

I need to call one of you and have you explain this to me on the telephone. Im willing to pay 10 dollars for 30 minutes of your time explaining this to me. Sorry guys I'm not the best at understanding all these things. 10 bucks 30 minutes via paypal i saw a video on how to do some stuff i didn't understand on my sights and need some explaining on those too.
