Other then YHM, who makes a flip up sight for a gas block? Looking for a top tier sight.

GG&G, top tier.

There front sight is not that nice, IMHO...no different then YHM's.

You are entitled to your opinion. I disagree, I think it is an excellent sight.

You are wrong however about it being no different than YHM. The two sights are very different.

I don't find a skinny little pin which locks up the sight "an excelent sight", seems weak. And it's 99% a Bushmaster/YHM sight, I have one in my hands, they look almost identical.

Larue makes a front sight?

Sorry, but I still have to disagree about the GG&G and YHM.

AFAIK LT does not make a front sight. The Troy and the PRI are not made for installing on a gas block. I am not sure but I think YHM and GG&G might be the only way to go (maybe DPMS/Mangonel too?)

Would a gas block/front sight combo work for you? Looks like you would have more options if so.

Troy did tell me that they were planning on producing their front sight for gas block mounting, but I have no idea when that might be.

Good luck.

GG&G, TWO SPRING LOADED DETENTS, PLUS THE PIN.
What is more well built/engineered than that? No Bushmaster/YHM anyhing. Look a little closer.
