Just a heads up. Maybe it’s been addressed already. When U said overseas I’m pretty sure u meant military. But they never allow us to do our own little knick knacks. When I became an armorer I wouldn’t either. If you want to and it fails. Imagine if youre covering fire, or have a target in sight when it fails. That’s on you. Don’t let anyone find out. I’ve always said and say just don’t get caught doing the wrong thing. I don’t think it’s bad. I’m just being real

A.R.M.S. sights, rails and accesories are highly proven and is extremely high end gear . Pri is also very good .Vltor was and maybe is still...their legacy stuff is good for sure. The companies that are not super famous, but have been around for ever make the best stuff. A small blind hole drilled into the retaining area the drift pin is drifting out of , through the pin itself as well and a spring pin tapped into it would fix that sight. One one each side would be better.

This is why I'd K.I.S.S. I have yet to hear any soldier's pinned A2 front sight/gas block/sling mount/bayonet lug failing. And if it did, odds are they have dozens of those things laying around the base.

If it never needs to come out, file little 45 degree flats on the ends of the pin. Insert it, then take a center punch and hit the body of the sight next to the flat. To get the pin out afterwards means driving it hard enough to push that deformed metal back into position, and it can't roll and hog out the hole over time.

Knight's Armaments put little fiddly springs on the pins to hold them. They fly across the room during maintenance so fast you can't see them. I always buy a bag of ten of those. I could just buy a big magnet to swing around the shop every now and again...

750 or 7,500 ,, things like this should never happen .... machining equipment and materials available today are mind blowing,, but set up and production is still "human operated" ,, how many of these were sent out to the ones that risk life and limb before a flaw was discovered ?? (Maybe .0001 hole size to large ,, is "Good enough" acceptable ??).... How about full press through with a retaining E-clip as secondary hold ??.. This is results of mass production and profits ,,, Quality Control needs to be 100 % + ,, before any go out the door... If this were to happen on a weapon needed in an operation it would or could lead to a death of the user.....(inaccurate shot fired in which gives away location of operator to opposing forces) ..... some things need to be over thought and over built ,,just to be sure they do what they are supposed to do... because of what this part is ,, NO excuse wil be justified and/or accepted......doesn't matter WHO the consumer is...... Whether pressed fit or threaded ,, both are subject to movement ,, ALWAYS have a backup support .....

Hi Mr W! You have a company from Sweden called Spuhr. Håkan Spurh. He is a famous gunsmith. His mounts are something really good. They had to remove him as a weapons writer tester in a major newspaper here. He wrote straight out what was badly thought out on all weapons. Large company dealers refused to send weapons for testing to Håkan in the end because he was honestly writing as it was straight out no matter what manufacturer it was. He deals with tests all very good shooter is also working with older black powder gun knives axes he is a real perfectionist out at the fingertips. You will find his page if you search for his name. Many famous names in long-range shooting and more love his mounts claiming there is nothing better. I myself have a Spurh mount on one of my rifles very rigid mount. Hope that the unrest calms down where you live and good luck with your move. I have received many good tips that have made it easier for me to watch and follow your channel. Then maybe I can come up with good tips back? 🤔 You like some Swedish things like Gränsforsbruk, Husqvarna, Mora and more. Who knows you might like Spurh mounts? Hope you have a good day. Regards Morgan

Is your light mounted on the unity fusion or VTAC hub plate? If so, there is another option... there is a fixed front sight for the fusion hub that obviously won’t have this problem. Alternatively, ditch it all and run an mbus pro front sight with a monkey bar light mount.

Red dots and LPVO's have become really reliable these days at great prices...Almost making irons obsolete...Of course they are just added weight until you really need them but with it just being a homeowner/property rifle, it's not the end of the world if you don't have irons...A red dot can even still be useful if the battery dies on ya...If you practice consistant cheek welds and shoulder position you can imagine the red dot in your FOV and make hits on human targets at 100...Give it a try and see how you fair..It's a great skill to practice. Again it all comes down to consistant cheek welds and shoulder position. Practice a few magazines with the dot on and focus on getting the same position everytime. Then turn your dot off and see how ya do....An old tip to reassure cheek weld is to put the tip of your nose on your charging handle.

My son will easily fire over 1000 rounds in a single day during deployment training. It uncovers some of the flaws in the weapons. They do improvise with using a dab of "something" to lock things down if needed.

The other sights seem to have a C clip Maybe put some loctite blue on the pin before you put it back in, or even to the whole pin, just to fill the worn out tolerance they machined it to have, nd it will hold it there

Good to know. Confirms why I don't like front flip up sights. I always prefer a fixed front sight post. Never gets in the way whether using a red dot or a lpvo. I run the magpul pro rear flip up sight on one AR with the PA 2.5x optic and the other has the A2 front sight base with carry handle A2 rear sight. I run a fixed DD rear with A2 front sight base and a red dot on my AR pistol. I want my irons to be bomb proof because I pretty much count on the optic failing at some point if that makes sense, lol.

You could drill and tap a blind hole on each side of the sight, then screw in a small tab to keep the pin retained on each side.
