Because of the focal length of most scopes, you are not even going to see the front sight in most set-ups like that. Even with a low-powered scope, like the ELCAN, I can barely see the front sight as a faint outline (and it's not enough to bother me), and with a higher-power scope, the front sight is compltely invisible to me.

For optics without magnification like an EOTech or an Aimpoint, I prefer a flip-up front sight, so it is out of the way and doesn't interfere, but for most scopes with magnification I don't see it as an issue.

I have no problem with my A2 front sight and a 20" barrel when looking through my scope. I can not tell that it is there.

Had a compact ACOG (3x24) and the front sight was hardly noticeable even whe trying to looks at it.
