What is the point at the top of the dr 200 front sight ring all about?
Is that for looking over the weapon for close in range?
Just wondering. I figure it has some sort of function
Does any body know

On the commercial rifles the point is a remnant of the casting for the front sight block

On machine guns, including the post-samples I've seen, there is a tritium vial pressed into a vented hole in that peak and a flip up huge ghost ring peep on the rear sight which folds forward. Hope this helped.

yea it helps thank you!! i was wondering if i had asked a stupid question with all the reads and no response. i think it would work as a close quarters point sight within 25 yards. i will try it out on my next range visit.
