I built an upper with a 14.5" barrel and a rifle length quad-rail. Right now it has a chopped carry handle and a YHM flip up front sight, mounted to the front of the rail. I've decided that I don't want a flip-up front sight anymore, but a fixed detachable front sight. The problem is that all of the detachable fixed front sights on the market are designed to be mounted to a 1913 gas block, which is a different height than the quad-rail. My gas block is under the quad rail, so changing the gas block is not an option for me.

Does anybody know of a fixed detachable front sight on the market that's designed to work on the same plane as the quad-rail?

Yea that's right I said FIXED DETACHABLE, as opposed to a detachable front sight that folds down.

You're sure you don't want a reconditioned removable front sight instead?

Probably your local machine shop can make one for you, if you can't find one.

Edit to add:

shit, scratch this. You want something that works on the same plane as the quad-rail...hmm that is gonna be a tought one. This model works on the front gass block.

The one they list is for an AR-10, but it's a step in the right direction.
