I have a 556 classic with the older m4 style stock that I want to change out to a foldable front sight.  If I want to keep the same OEM sig red dot with out a riser, what brand do I buy, and where, to replace the fixed front sight that came with the rifle?


Or just keep it as is and go balls out and buy a 556XI since it all ready comes with foldable irons.

MFI makes a folding sight replacement that will work.

Does it come as a set with the rear sight included?  Basically is the Samson or the MI better?  Or is there more options out there?

I was assuming you wanted a front that is the same height as the built in rear popsicle sight. As for the other two, I believe those are both are AR height. I'm personally biased toward MI myself given a choice between the two.

MFI sights ROCK. They should come standard on SIG's.

This is what I'm referring to. Be careful to make sure you have the correct rear sight type(it's in the pictures on their site).

I have replaced the SIG diopter sights with MI and Samson folding sights. Both are good but I find I prefer the MI but that is just a personal preference.
