    I have a question for anyone out there with AR-15 smarts.

    Will a removable carry handle rear site setup from a full size Colt HBAR fit on a DPMS flat top carbine? Would the front site line up with it?

    I think it will bolt down but I am not sure of the sites. Thanks in advance for any reply's.

    yes it will fit

    is your front sight base on the carbine marked with a pressed in F ?

    if it is it should line up

    if not you may or may not need a taller front sight post

    The only markings on the front site is <B>1 which is raised (as opposed to pressed) and on the right side just above the barrel. On the rear flat top there is a pressed M in the front directly above where the gas tube goes in.

    On the carry handle itself, aside from the elevation markings, there is a raised AH on the handle next to the UP on the elevation. However the AH is on the handle itself and not on the elevation/aperture piece.

    Why is this in NFA weapons, mods should move this.

    Just standard hand guards.

    Those hand-guards can be dangerous, too. But not as much as bayonet lugs and pistol grips. Maybe they are full-auto hand-guards and that's why the thread is in NFA?

    Ok, The thread is in NFA because I'm a newb and put it their by mistake. Also this not the most user friendly site to administer your posts on. If the moderators want to move it feel free. Otherwise, I can move it myself but haven't quite figured out how. However, I get the feeling someone here on the friendly NFA site will be glad to tell me how.

    Ah, I think once you're here awhile you may get in tune with the forum sense of humor. It is not entirely um, overt.
