Hey all,

Putting together a new RRA flattop shorty AR, without their "tactical carry handle" as per advice given here previously. I'm going to go with an ARMS #40 flip-up BUIS, but I'm curious if I'll need to replace the stock front sight post with one that is .04" higher, or is that not a problem on the RRA guns?

Honestly you won't know till you put your gun together. I've got 2 bushies with ARMS#40s and neither of them required the taller front sight posts. Yet plenty of people here with Bushies required the taller FSB.

Since RRA doesn't make a 'F' front sight base, my guess is you could potential face the same issue.

some need it some dont i have the arms buis on three of my rifles and only one needed it. actually it worked without the taller front site post but kinda protruded lil too much for comfort so i changed it .

but yeah put it together first and try and site it in if it extends too much replace it
