I cannot find the front sight on my M2 . It takes too much for me to focus it in.
Is there a front sight, fiber optic, that mounts without fuss?

Thanks. Ordered one today and will post back.
It uses a .040" pipe. We shall see.

I have one. Its not that bright. You will also need a special 5mm wrench to mount it. .

Tried mine today. Did not even mount it, No improvement.
There is a nice shelf to mount something more substantial though. I think some other , larger sight holding a larger diameter sight insert could be adapted.
Someone surely has done this.

I just this tried using a 0.04 inch fiber optic rod. Works a lot better but you still wont see it in a dark room. I am not sure if it will hold up but the switch is very easy. It only takes 10 seconds. All you do is slide in the rod with about 1/8 to 1/16 inch protruding and very briefly melt the ends with a lighter.
