Looks good; wondering if anyone has tried them out and cares to comment. Someone has to have one, as Wes sold out of his first batch.

I have a LMT rear sight. I got it from Wes, great service. It is very solid and well made. It is a little shorter than a standard rear. I think this is so you can zero the M4. The only fault is that there is not a ball on the sight to keep it centered in the base like on my standard AR's. LSK

I have one, it is a bit bulkier then a cut carrying handle, but the construction is bullet proof. I have it on a 16 incher as my primary sight. with the front of the carrying handle cut away, the sight suddenly open up a lot more. the FOV is awesome, and it is just that much faster to acquire a target then the standard iron. much to my suprise, it is a killer ghost ring now. I think a cut and the LMT is about the same, the LMT will have the cool factor, a cleaner finish and it is a bit sturdier, but I think a 100 dollars cut handle will be the same. I will post some comparson pictures later this week.

This is what I am thinking, though for a 14.5". Lumpy196 posted some pictures today ([url=http://www.ar15.com/forums/topic.html?b=1&f=5&t=191781&w=myTopicPop] here[/url]) of a few guys in Iraq using LMTs in conjunction with Aimpoints, which was a bit surprising; seems like you'd rather have a fold-down BUIS to make the Aimpoint nice and clear. BTW, Wes says you can add tritium sites to the LMT, which I think would be quite useful in conjunction with a front tritium sight post.

These are some comparson pictures of Cut carrying handle rear sight vs. LMT rear sight.

The finish are much better then the cut carrying handle. but if you are on a budget, the cut carrying handle is a bit cheaper and it will have a home made look to it, but some people like the rugged modified look. Overall, LMT is worth the money, and it is highly recommanded for a primary rear sight or as a co-witness rear. It is just amazing to witness the quick acquisition the sight created by just cutting of the front of a carrying handle.

As there is extremely little to no parallex error, look over your rear sight at the reticle so it won't be in your way. Should not be a problem. Cool pics. Gawd I love these forums! [^]

Someone asked me a question by IM regarding the handguard set up on this rifle, I accidentially deleted the message and unbale to reply with an answer. I apologize. The set up is a Colt double heat shield handguard with a GG&G UFIR(Under the Forearm Intergrated Rail)with a GG&G tactical offsit mount. the installation is very simple, just pop off the handguard and install per instruction.
