View Full Version : Co-whitnessing sights

I see that you guys got a front picatiny gas block. Do you guys do flip up sights for the fal? If so how much does a conversion usually cost, and could you post a link to all the parts (including sights) that i will need to complete this project.

Here is a link to a front sight you can use for that:
Flip-up Front Sight (http://www.dsarms.com/Gas-Block-Front-Flip-Up-Sight----PM138/productinfo/PM138/)
Then pair that with a matching A2 flip-up rear sight. You should be able to co-witness at that point. You would also need a Picatinny lower from here:
Lowers and Related Parts (http://www.dsarms.com/Lower-Receiver--Related-Parts/products/53/3/0)
So the end result is something like this:
Hope that helps!

Could I mount the rear sight tot he picatinny upper receiver cover, as is also depicted in the picture? If not, why and which lower would I need? I currently have a FAL that accepts both metric and inch mags. I was told by a gun shop that does work on FAL rifles that my rifle is composed of both metric and inch parts. I would want to retain the ability of using both type of mags.
Also could the front sight be mounted on the quad rail fore grip? Or does this just not make for a stable base for the sights?
Do you have a rear flip up sight that has windage and elevation on it, that will mount to a FAL?

I suppose you could mount them that way if you did not have a rear sight or front sight on the gun that was in the way. A smith might be able to do something in terms of modifying the front sight tower. You would have a shorter sight picture, but other than that it should line up. You can use any AR rear BUIS so would just have to pick one that had windage/elevation adjustment on it.
