After my first build, I got bit by the bug and wanted another project. I already put together a 16 in. h-bar carbine with a red dot. now I would like to build a 20'' A2 or 3. I would like to have a nice 3-9x or 4-14x scope on it, but will the front sight base obstruct my veiw if mounted on an A3? or should I put it sky high on top of a carry handle? Also, does anyone have a 20'' light weight barrel? How do you like it? I'd prefer to not have an 8+ pound rifle.

at 3x or 4x you will only see a blurry shadow of the FSB... nothing to worry about

hmmmm. sounds like I should rasie up the scope a bit. or can I get a standard 20''er with no FSB?

Why dont you get a different Gas Block? That way you dont have it in the way? Thats what I'm doing with my 20" build.

If you go FF rail handguard, sure. Otherwise you can use a folding front sight/gas block combo like PRI or YHM.

There's some money in that rifle alright! Very sharp!

Bushmaster makes a flip up/down front that goes over a standard shaved FSB.
