So I am putting a free float fluted Handgaurd on my current build. So I'm going to need a gas block/sight combo or gas block w/ rails. I'm really overwelmed with all the choices and I'm wondering what would be my best options? Any help/suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

I have used a clamp on gas block with attached font sight form Yankee Hill Machine. Zero Problems. Just make sure your Freefloat Rail and your Front Sight/ gas block combo are level with the Upper receiver.

Edit: You can also go with a low profile gas block and put your front sight on the FF rail.

When I went to build mine, I looked at the Photos of others people's Ar-15 builds to get an idea.

Gunstruction is a great tool to use as a guide

Only one I have experience with is the PRI offering. No complaints at all.

Some others makers are YHM, Wilson Combat, KAC, Vltor, and ARMS. Though I'm sure I'm forgetting a couple more.

I have used or installed:

PRI- loved it, still use one.
YHM- Good for the money.
ARMS- Great sight a little pricey.

the combo gas block and front sight adds a level of expense to a basic gas block....but i wanted one for my build as well and chose Vltor's VST...its nice.
