My DSA SA58 carbine is shooting 12 inches HIGH at 100 yards with the rear sight adjusted all the way down. My front sight post is too low. I called DSA and they said I needed a taller front sight but wouldn't cover it under warranty and wanted $25 plus $8 shipping for a new one. Needless to say I'm looking for a cheaper one elsewhere. I need the taller one that has 4 dimples in it. Anyone have suggestions where to buy one for a reasonable price?

If you're shooting low, you'd want a shorter front sight.

You did adjust the FRONT sight as well?

RAISE your REAR sight to make the gun shoot higher.

LOWER your FRONT Sight to make the gun shoot higher.

Or waste another $33 to make it shoot even lower!!

What you need is the one or zero dot front sight. Go to this address Gun Parts Guy and call or email James and he will get you what you need for a fair price. DSA wants to much for theirs and the want to charge you $9 to ship something that weighs less than an ounce.

Sorry guys but I meant it was shooting a foot HIGH at a hundred yards. I guess I should stay off the internet close to my bedtime.

How old is the rifle? Did you buy it from DSA, and is it still under warranty?

I'd say they need to fix it.



DSA said since the rifle is a couple years old, they wouldn't replace the front sight under warranty. I had shot it exclusively with a SUIT scope on it and just recently shot it with the iron sights and discovered the problem.

Give James at GPG a call and he will set you up with the tall front sight.

James (GunPartsGuy) called me back and said he's paying $20 a piece for them now. Any more suggestions for a reasonably priced source or am I stuck with paying $20+?

Well I finally found one at SARCO for $10 plus $7.50 shipping/handling. If you ever come across one for a good price you'd better snap it up as they cost almost as much as gold now.

I'm not sure. The parts dept. had to look through their bins while I was on hold to find it. It's not a standard catalog item. Your best bet is to call them and have them do another search. I also tried Numrich (Gun Parts Corp) with no success.
