    okay I have a question. I want to mount a rear flip up sight on my rifle that will use the standard front post.. but I have an ARMS #50c rail system that raises my rear rails about 3/8" what kind of rear sight do I need without spending $150 on the arms one? thinking I may just sell off the ARMS for a hand guard that doesn't cover my receiver rails

    or will the front post be able to compensate so I'm not shooting too high

    Im pretty sure Brownells sells a low profile rear sight for this type of application. Your front sight will not have enough adjustment to compensate for the difference!

    the low profile look to stand at the same height. just folds down flatter.
