Default What flip down iron sights for a DPMS Oracle?

I just put a DPMS Oracle in jail. My understanding is that the fold down YHM and MI sights that mount to the rail on the front gas block will work (line up) with the standard flip down rear sights. Hopefully this is the case, any recomendations / information would be appreciated.

This may sound funny but the best person to call is DPMS customer service at: Toll Free: 1-800-578-3767

I had a question and they were more than happy to help, I also have one of thier uppers and it has been trouble free and a blast to shoot.

I have a DPMS oracle with a MI gas block mounted front sight and I just fold it forward, otherwise the hand guard prevents it from completely folding down
