    Question: Sights on an M16 or AR

    I've heard folks mention different height front sights for an AR or M16.

    Also heard about different widths on some of them.

    How do you measure them so you get something different, . . . but not too different?

    Thanks, may God bless,

    Check Windom Weaponry's website. They have different heights and might give some info on what you're wanting. Use their search bar for A2 front sight post, it'll make life easier than trying to search the various places around the site to find them.

    The other issue is that Colt designed a standard sight for the A1 then redesigned it for the A2. All others are after market.

    - - - Updated - - -

    For the A3 and A4 series Colt kept the A2 Sight but, redesigned Front Sight Post 1/16" higher. The post has an "F" stamped on it.
