Do any of you SBR owners with 10.5"-11.5" barrels use a PRI folding front sight? Just curious if there is any advantage/disadvantage to using one over the standard front sight. It will be used with either an Eotech or Aimpoint optic mounted to a LaRue 7.0 rail. Photos would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Mark

Folding front BUIS......

Pro- Cleaner view through optic

Con- if optic fails it takes a moment to deploy buis.

I would get a LaRue 9.0 and get the new version PRI flip sight that mounts on the rail. I got one coming from JTAC Supply

+1 for the low profile GB /LT 9.0

Thanks for the info. I suppose that if I go the LaRue 9.0 route I will also need a LaRue low profile gas block. Are you sold on the PRI rail mounted folder versus the Troy? Any photos? Mark

Yes you will need the low profile gas block but the price for the rail mounted PRI sight + the LaRue gas block is almost the same price as the PRI flip sight/gas block combo. I have been sold on the PRI hooded front sight for a long time. I don't think anyone has one of the new rail mounted ones yet but I'd be willing to bet I'll like it just the same.
