Mounting a 551 diopter on my 556 ?
I came across a 551 diopter sight on a cut upper stub and am contemplating getting it welded to my 556. Does anyone know of a good gunsmith to mount it or the correct procedure ? I looked at the MFI system but for the $ and the fact the parts are not interchangeable I'd like to stay with what I picked up. I've also got the correct front sight.

You might have better luck tracking down a custom fab shop in your area, and asking for their best TIG welder. He should be able to make a quick jig, and weld it up nice and clean for you. I'd offer to have one of our guys do it for you if you were in state.
