Never heard of Ameriglo before, are they any good

I specifically looking at the AK-47 front post night sight (as a replacement for my TROY front BUIS post).

I spoke with TROY today, and this is what they recommended.

He also said they will retrofit the older sights with the AK thread pitch. For about $45 bucks they will convert it to a standard AR front sight post. Then another $45 for the night sight, for an approximately $90 retrofit.

The new TROY AR-style front BUIS is already tapped for the standard AR front sight post.

So i'm thinking just getting the Ameriglo AK front sight to save the shipping and TIME (= BUIS are not on the rifle when they are supposed to be. Yeah, yeah I have backup weapons tho)

I discovered that the night sight insert WILL NOT screw down far enough into the front sight base to raise the POI where it needs to be to get the rifle zeroed. Solution is to have the big portion just above the threads machine, milled or ground down to allow the sight to screw further into the FSB.
