Hello,

I'm about to buy a PRI flip up front sight. The barrel is .750 in diameter and without any front sight. Will the PRI sight fit the barrel as it doesn't have cuts for standard front sight post???

thanks!

PRI makes three types of sights. One setscrews to the barrel and the other two, pictured above, have cross bolts. For a barrel like yours, you want the one where the cross bolts pass completely under the barrel profile, like the one on the left. The one on the right requires slots in the barrel.

I'm not sure. I would ask specifically for the one with the cross bolts that pass under the barrel profile, rather than through it. A confirming picture may also be helpful, if needed, before you purchase.

I'll do that thanks!! One more thing, could you measure the lenght of the whole PRI unit? This is pretty crucial, since I have extremely shot barrel and I'm using a sound suppressor...need to be sure that it fits. Thanks again, mate!

It measures approx. 1.852".

....and the gap between the SIR and the suppressor measures 1.875"

Mongo, I hope you measured it properly

Thanks for your help, dude!!!
