View Full Version : para rear sight on G1 kit?

April 08, 2008, 14:02
Hi, I got a VOW para sight on my G1 para franken build. I thought I had the correct FSP on the gun, but evidently not. I think it is an izzy FSP, do I need to find an indian FSP to make this thing quit shooting so low? TIA.

You will need a standard height gas block and front sight post to work with a PARA rear sight...


You will need Israeli or Indian height rear sight to work with the taller gas block...

The easiest thing to do is to change out the rear sight...

Well, I don't want to replace that particular rear sight. Are you saying the G1 is not a standard height? Remember this is one of Dan's rear sights. Thanks.

Sorry.. miss read your post...

G1 is the standard height... So in answer to your question... try a shorter front sight post...

ok, rather than mill down the FSP, would the indian fit the bill? Thanks.

How many dots on your existing front post? Tallest is 4, less is lower. I think.

Is your receiver closing all the way down on the lower?

I don't see any dots, but there is a "2" stamped on the base of the front sight.
