Is it only me or does CMMG front sight base ears look funny? I got my 16" middy in a few months ago and the ears look really thick and TOTALLY different from my GI front sight bases......

Here you go.. GI base on the left.. CMMG on the right. Yo'll also notice that the CMMG ears almost go straight up and the DI ears have a little flair to them.

It actually looks like the CMMG ears have the outside flair but not the inside one. They look thicker at the top like the inside curve wasn't cast in.

well it IS distracting.. especially with the shorter sight radius of the 16" middy barrel. It seems like it blocks part of yuor view around the front sight.

Ok, I can understand that. It's giving you a smaller field of view.
