Rear sight replacement

My Imbel parts gun shoots very well. I really enjoy the rifle for it's fit, feel, and ease of operation. However, I'm not pleased with the wobbly rear sight and its large diameter aperture.

Is there an aftermarket sight, similar to the para sight, that offers range AND elevation adjustments similar to that found on an AR-15/M-4?

I was going to have a smith install a para sight on my rifle this week, before I realized that I wouldn't have any way to adjust for range other than replacing front sight posts...

Any thoughts?

Generally speaking, I think the FAL is superior to it's competition, old and young, in many ways, but it's main weakness is its rear sight. It's "good enough" for a battle rifle, but I expect more from my rifles than just good enough.
