I have a light barrel (pencil barrel) and wondering who makes a railed gas block or flip up front sight for this size barrel?

Thanks!

Try Precision Reflex Inc (PRI).

I have a GG&G flip up front sight on my noodle-barrel. Ask yourself if you want the ultimate in weight savings (PRI) or features (GG&G). I went with the side sling mount, rail for a light (eliminating the need for a railed forend), and a bayo lug for the hell of it.

I didn't know that GG&G made a 0.625" front flip sight, I thought they were all 0.750. Custom job or the real deal??

Are we talking about a bushy lightweight or superlightweight barrel? I was unaware ANYone made one for the superlightweight, let alone a FSB.

The barrel I am trying to get one for is an Olympic pencil barrel.

I am not sure what a super lightweight barrel is?

TylerSchreck: What is the diameter of your bbl?

mongo001: I contacted GG&G when I was planning this project, and they stock them in both .750" and .625." No additional cost for the .625."

Thanks for the info. I'll scroll that little tidbit away for possible future use.

Sorry for the confusion. There are lightweight, then there are super lightweight barrels (which are what we call the "pencil" barrels). The do step up to .625" at the sightbase, but run .600" before and after.

Okay..then I do have a pencil (super lightweight) barrel. I can see the step up after you mentioned this.

Thanks

Here is the PRI on my BM super LW.



I love the sight. Just don't try to deploy it after shooting some rounds. You will burn your fingers.
