I just purchased a Knight's 300m flip up sight, and it seems to have a plastic insert in the aperture. Is this the 600m insert? How do you remove it? TIA.

Just find somthing that wont destroy the plastic and push it out. You can take it out and it makes a good close in ghost ring type sight similar to the large sight on the standard A2 sight.

That's exactly why I want to remove it! Thanks!

take a 5.56 round and tip it out from the muzzle end. take a zip lock bag and keep the plastic insert in case you sell the unit down the line, other then that there isn't really any purpose to the plastic insert.

Troy, Good point on the zeroing option, as well if one is using it for KD rnage fire it will be a better option than w/o. However most users of the BIS will find it more of a hinderance to keep in - as they want a OH SHIT I NEED MY BIS NOW! option that the plastic disk does not give

I'll second that. A back up iron site is just that.

One recommenation from KAC was to put the little disk on a pipe cleaner to make it easier to see (even if it is hiding in a plastic bag in your junk box). Other thing I have found is to put a little toe tag in the plastic bag with stuff like this ... as five years later is it real hard to remember what the KAC 300 sight is and what the plastic spacer for some other project is [;)]
