Hey everyone, I just purchased a 556R which didn't come with iron sights, just the cheap SIG red dot. The rear flip-up sight is there but no front sight. Any recommendations on aftermarket flip ups?

In a week or so, I am removing the sight on my SIG swat patrol. Rear is rotating Diopter and front is a hooded post.

I may be willing to sell them when removed.

Height of your primary optic (if you aren't using the sig red dot) is going to be the biggest question. If you are going to use anything with an AR type height than the samson or MI AR height flip ups are the best bet for the front, and any AR height rear.

Of course ar height sights/optics make your cheek weld into chin weld, but there are other solutions to that.

I purchased the Troy hand guard and I purchased Troy Micro DOA Sights as they were recommended for the 556 by Troy

Very nice. Do you have to have the Troy handgaurd? Or can you mount the front sight to the front dovetail mount?

i believe you need the troy handguard. it is one big top rail so i can keep both on the same sight plane.
