Alright guys, I picked up a FAL about 5 months ago. Got an excellent deal on it. Picked it up after a match where several people were running them and it bumped them up my list from maybe some day to have to have. Now, all that being said, its kind of a FrankenFAL. I mean, this thing is ugly. And is technically an L1A1 receiver, sort of. After running a different match this weekend and showing it to a couple of the guys that originally got me into it, they said I should post here. It groups really well, but shoots super low. The consensus is that I need a different rear sight, but one guy seemed to think I had a little bit of a rarity in my particular rear sight. Any assistance in A. Identifying the rear sight and B. A suitable replacement would be awesome. I'm gonna try to post pictures, but I've not posted on here before so Im gonna be figuring it out. Please bear with me while I do so.

Apparently I can't post attachments. Email for pictures apparently if you want to help. Sorry guys.

Use a hosting site such as Imgur, then post your pics here.

Have you tried adjusting the front sight?

If it won't adjust then simply replace the front sight with one of appropriate height.

The rear sight only does windage beyond it's adjustability for range.

I have it adjusted down as far as I can. I was told that it was simply a matter of the two not matching up, metric versus inch. Emails have been sent to the two who have messaged me and hopefully pics will be incoming today.

Have you tried to lower the front sight yet? Better yet, buy the needed Inch parts to complete the front end, then buy the needed Metric parts to complete the para lower. And then you'll have the best of both worlds!
Might put a magnet on the lower, to see if it's aluminum.

I have the front sight as low as it will go. So I need to buy a inch rear sight correct? Be the easiest swap? And the lower is aluminum.

You need an inch rear sight.
