This one here: [url]http://www.ar15.com/forums/topic.html?b=7&f=22&t=189086[/url] Picked one up last week and am VERY happy with it. It resembles the one that Fulton carries on their website but for $40 dollars less: [url]http://www.fulton-armory.com/FA-FoldingFrontSight2-300_50.jpg[/url] CH

I like the Knights flip up that goes on the top handguard rail.

GG&G makes a dove tail flip front, but it's not called the "MAD". If you are going to get it, wait a little while for them to make it with a locking detent like they did the rear A2 flip. It's one of the better quality front flips though, fairly compact. die-tryin, here's a few shots of the GG&G flip front and the GG&GA2 flip rear: (I'm thinking maybe I should turn the flip front around so it points to the rear) [img]http://photos.ar15.com/ImageGallery/Attachments/DownloadAttach.asp?iImageUnq=13416[/img] [img]http://photos.ar15.com/ImageGallery/Attachments/DownloadAttach.asp?iImageUnq=13417[/img] [img]http://photos.ar15.com/ImageGallery/Attachments/DownloadAttach.asp?iImageUnq=13418[/img] And one of the KAC 600 rear and KAC Flip Front Rail Mount [img]http://photos.ar15.com/ImageGallery/Attachments/DownloadAttach.asp?iImageUnq=14088[/img]

cape_hunter, the one you are referring to is a VM Hy-tech. I have one and like it so far.

I'd be very happy to have the PRI/gaslblock folding FS or the Knight's fold down FS.

Another vote for the PRI front folding sight/gas block.

Flip up front: Locking by Fulton Armory has made me very happy. It is very similar to the locking flip up Bushmaster sells.

PRI all the way. Moving this to the Sights & Optics forum for you. You'll get more hits and info there. [:)]

If you look at the std. non folding military front sight housing, they are designed so that very rugged and take the abuse front sights must be able to endure, and will not catch on branches etc. Now look at the DPMS front folder, it is designed to catch on everything. The PRI is the only realy well thought out front folder to date. Jack

My first flip up front sight was a GG&G and I still have it. I have a PRI on my SPR clone and think it is the best design to date. On my next upper (hopefully a 6.8mm) I plan on using the PRI as well.

PRI... I just wish the button was on the opposite side because it would be faster to get up for me.
