Can't seem to find one of these anywhere. Does anyone know where I can find one?

Any help is appreciated.

Go over to KTOG, people have retrofitted AK FSB's, and have also used HiPoint carbine front sights too.

Well, my trick was to get some aircraft frame aluminium and cut it into the shape of the front site post, but that's not an option for everyone

do you want a replacement or repair? KT is really good about fixing things.

I love my Blue Force Gear BTFP better than factory plastic sight but they don't make them anymore. They did one last run of 100 a year or so ago and had a hard time selling all of them. I think it is one of those things that people want, but it is such a low volume it is not worth it for anyone to mass produce.
The danger is not Barack Obama but those who elected him. It will be easier to undo the follies of Obama than to restore good judgment to the masses. We can survive Obama, who is merely a fool. We are less likely to survive the fools who support him.

I'm looking to replace, not repair. I really like the idea of it using an AR15 sight post, so I can change it out for something with better visibility.

Its a shame Blueforce stopped making the BTFP front sight. It is a quality replacement for the weakest problem part with the S2K IMO.

Doesn't look as if the Blue Force sight has windage. If not how do you adjust it.
Thanks

119$ i think , they were contacted recenty by a guy on ktog and they said they would do a run of 50 sights for 5k$ prepaid ...The HP carbine front sight works too , or get the kel tec quad rail and throw some mbus on it

Guns and Women, I love the smell of both.

I can tell you the problem right there- the price point was way too high compared to the price of the rifle, almost 1/3 the cost of a new Sub 2000.
