OK well I was reading the post about the differance between Colt and Bushy carry handles and about the differance between front sight post and I am now more confused then before I read it,

So here's my question and I'm sorry I didnt understand the first post," too much info"

I have a Colt Comp HBAR A3 . I replaced the Colt 20" barrel with a Bushy 16" M4 style barrel ,
and I havn't shot it yet, do I need to replace my front sight post on the Busy barrel so it will line up with my Colt carry handle?
I also have a RRA tacticle handle I'm thinking about using on this gun , what about this set up ?

thank Brian

shoot it and find out.
I did not know if I needed the taller sight post until I shot it.
some people didn't need it, some did.  I needed the taller sight post.

Shoot it and if it acts like an anti-aircraft weapon, you will need to raise the FSP...

Seriously tho ... I too get lost with some of the more technical discusiions on this board. As stated by everybody, "just shoot it". That's the simplest and surest way you will ever find out. If you run out of elevation settings, then maybe you DO need to change your FSP.

Good luck .... have fun.
