I was wondering the other day why Colt does not make a flattop carbine utilizing
the government carbine (6520) barrel. SO, I decided to make one for myself. I notice
that the 6520 barrels don't have the F-marked front sight. I was wondering what the
implications are of putting the 6520 barrel on a Colt M4 flattop upper. I know there are sight height
differences, but will this combination work together? Do I simply need to get a taller front
sight pin? Or what?
Thanks in advance for your kind responses,
