I have been having trouble accessing this sight, but give it a try.

Do you want plain detachable sights or flip up sights?For plain sights you can go anywhere
www.bushmaster.com
www.armalite.comor any of the dealers under links on the home page.

For flip up detachable there's not a whole lot of choices
www.gggaz.com
www.armsmounts.com
www.knightsarmament.com
or the dealers on the links pages.

I have an Armalite 16" carbine with rails fore and aft and I put a SIR with an ARMS #40 on the back and GG&G front flip up for a dove tailed gas block on the front. I had to crank the front sight all the way down to get zero (50 M) and I use and Aimpoint on the forward on the SIR rail. It is functional for me and fast if I have to change. The GG&G is made for the armalite gas block.

How do you like the GG&G?Does it lock in the down position or just in the up position?I have the same weapon as you,ARMS 40 on back and I need a front flip up.Thanx

I really like it. It doesn't really lock into the up position. It is more of a spring loaded ball that holds it up. It is very secure when it is up. It doesn't have a lock in the down position. I would highly recommend it.

I have a BN GG&G flip-up front and it *does* lock in the "up" position, with a notch for a pushbutton, in addition to the ball & detents.

It does not lock in the "down" position.

BTW: The pushbutton is small and can be difficult to depress with a fingernail.
