Can a flip aperture be sucessfully installed in a ARMS 40 sight. Bushmaster says they can but looking at the photo of the aperture and my sight I wonder. Any other suggetions. My application is IPSC 3-gun and I like the idea of using the large (Hugh) aperture for close range hosing and flipping to a small aperture for longer range steel.

I believe the aperature on the #40 IS a standard flip aperature. One aperature they use has a flat open top (or something like that) on one of the peeps. The #40STANDARD (or whatever they call it) uses the same flip aperature part as found on regular A2 sights. I could be a little fuzzy on this but that's the jist of it.

Somebody at Bushmaster doesn't know what the f*ck he's talking about. As stated above, it COMES with a "flip" type aperture. Sales rule No. 1 (especially around here): KNOW wtf you're selling.

Where did you get that? Bushmaster said that they (or he) could replace the existing aperture with an A2 aperture, which is correct. I don't see where they made any suggestion that the aperture it comes with is NOT a flip aperture. -Troy

You must have misread my post. My point was that since it already comes with a flip-type aperture, it should be pretty obvious that one may be installed. I never stated anything about a non-flip aperture.
