For those of you who can't just look at a random acronym and figure out what it means, GLFS = Gas Lock Fron Sight. i.e. I htink it is one of the nifty HK style front sights that SMG Lee and others have been installing recently...

what is wrong with the standard (or match) front sight

There are two GLFS currently in use -
Hooded HK style and standard dove tail.

The poll is to determine how many would
like these made available for the Chicom
barrels.

This is why I want a metric thread Smith Enterprise, Inc. combination gas cylinder lock front sight. With my 17 5/8 " Chinese chromium plated barrel I would lose 1 3/8 " sight radius over the traditional M14 front sight but I would get to use my M14 sound suppressor. BTW, this same "can" can be used on an AR15 with a SEI Vortex flash hider. We live in a world of give and take.

=============
For it's intended purpose, absolutely nothing. Howver, as also stated by Different above, the main reason you mght need the patent-pending GLFS is to facilitate the use of the M14DC Sound and Flash Suppressor as emplyed by 2ID (M14SE), 3 ACR(M14SE), USAF(MK 14), USN (MK14 Mod O & M14SE), 10SFG (MK14 SEI) and soon a foreign ally. Other US Army units pending. In sum, it is a military consideration.
