I have a gas block sight base, however I think I prefer a fixed front sight base. Has anybody used a YHM-9495 and if so, is it very sturdy? Or, should I just replace the FSB? I have read it is difficult at best to install a FS yourself, I assume this also applies if there has never been a FSB actually attached to the barrell. The gas block is attached with allen head set screws. Here is a link to a pic of my upper.

I have a gas block too. I thought of the Yankee Hill, but it's a thumbscrew. Ameetec has one, but I don't think it locks from what I can tell from the picture. GGG and Bushmaster have one that uses hex screws and they both lock. The Bushmaster is almost half the price of the GGG, but I haven't found any reviews about anyone using any of them.

Are the ones you are talking about flip up or fixed? I cant seem to find solid ones at ameetec, ggg, or bushmaster.

Oops, sorry. Wasn't paying attention. Armalite and Rock River Arms have fixed front sights.
