Flip Front sight gas block.
These are not currenty for sale outside the SR16 series of weapons.
Previously Marvin had been able to buy these and pin them on, but when he left us that route was eliminated. Until a KAC employee that is willing and skilled is willing to do this as a after work job again it is not available.
Yes I have a taper reamer, and yes I have done this before, but I want to do more of my own guns before I commit to something like this for sale.

So looks like it's typical KAC unobtanium! LOL

The thing that I like about those sights was the fact that they were pinned in place. I guess I'll just have to look around some more.

Pinned with lug is why they're cool.

You can always pin a set-screw or clamp block, too. It's what most of us do with ours, anyways.

I forgot to add... GG&G makes a pinned one.
