Okay. Really dumb question. On a flat-top receiver, the mounting rail can accomodate Weaver-style scope rings without any kind of adapter, correct?

Also, I've noticed that a lof of people have rear sights on their flat tops that are not part of the carry handle, but appear to work with the stock front sight post. Can you tell me where to find these, and who generally has the best prices? Thanks.

There are several back up iron sights for flat tops. ARMS has one as does GG&G and Knights Armament. Check with Wes at [url]www.mstn.biz[/url]

Yes, it should accept weaver-styled scope rings w/o an adapter.

Make sure you look on the Equipment exchange and see if anyone is letting any optics go at a bargin price first. Other than the companies mentioned, Bushmaster and DPMS makes/sells both flip up and stationary back up iron sights (B.U.I.S.). Another choice is to cut down an existing detatchable carry handle. Most of the guys I've seen on the board have the ARMS 40 back up sight. Many have chosen to make there own BUIS by cutting down the carry handle as I've mentioned. I personally have/like the Knights Armament 600 meter BUIS.
