I got my new A2 front site base in friday's mail.
I am a picky bastard. As I openned it, I figured I'd see a silver spot here or there like half the other suff you buy...but much to my surprise....this thing is frickin' awesome. I tend to remove FSBs now and then...to shorten or thread a barrel, etc....and usually (especially bushy) in the process of removing the stubborn taper pins...yes, it happens...I ruin the damn thing.
This is the best option for a replacement...hands down. I will not hesitate to buy more as I need them. If I had more cake in the old gun fund, I would buy a few just to have.
