View Full Version : front sights
June 02, 2008, 19:57
i just got back my fal back from century and they replaced the barrel, so i took it to the range and hey it cycles and feeds fine but i noticed that i was shooting way low so i adjusted the front sights all the way down and i still have to shoot at the head to get a chest hit and above the target to get a head shot. the rear sights are set at 2 and front sights screwed all the way down, any ideas?
thanks ahead for the input. :cry:

sounds like you may need a shorter front sight post, how may dots are on your front sight post,there are 5 different heights of Metric front sight posts #0,#1,#2,#3,#4 ,the #0 front sight posts has NO dots,the #1 front sight post has one dot,#2 front sight post has two dots and so on all the way up to #4 which has four dots and is the tallest of the front sight posts and #0 being the shortest

So what you have is a 3 dot front sight post and it is next to the tallest front sight post,I would go to a #2 dot front sight post and try that

you can try and place a WTB ad in the marketplace for a Metric #2 dot front sight post, Or get in contact with gunpartsguy either should work
