I was thinking about getting a LIPSKI barrel-band type front sight base for my RRA A4 Varmint barrel.* What front sight is available for this which might be as rugged as the base?
Using this (it mounts out near the muzzle) would give me the longest possible sight radius given this very short carbine upper. It is height adjustable so I can co-witness with the EOTech (if I can ever find a rev F to actually purchase). I can get a true windage zero with the rear sight set at its mechanical windage zero.
* I have one on another AR match rifle. It is well made and I believe it is as rugged (strong, damage-proof) as the "normal" clamp-on front sight that fits on the gas block rail.
