Okay, I ordered up a set of Samson sights to alleviate my rifle's 'Iron' deficiency. I will obviously be removing the factory front sight to install the Samson unit. Will SIG cry, "Foul!" and void the warranty? I plan to contact them and ask, but I figured I'd ask here too. Have any of you folks ever run into a problem with SIG concerning aftermarket add-ons? Best!

Reblyell why you so negative? Send rounds down range and fall in love with your new purchase :D Sights have nothing to do with the mechanical aspects of the bolt carrier group/weapon. Just Follow Ullies recommendations on how to treat your new arrival ,you'll be fine....

LOL! Sorry if I sound overly negative. Perhaps you overlooked my sarcasm? I do like the rifle's attributes, and hope its performance will be acceptable. Time will tell! Best!

Just so you know, not every one of these rifles has "issues". Mine falls within the time range/manufacture date that a few of these fellas have issues with. All I know is mine is a freakin' smooth operator.

changing the sights I seriously doubt will do anything to the warranty, since changing the stock is just as much if not more, and won't affect your warranty.

Filing down the front post, then sending it in for warranty work for not shooting straight would probably make replacing the front sight a non warranty repair.

Reading your other posts, honestly, your sarcasm wasn't readily apparent as it is here, you do loose a lot of inflection when you type what you'd normally say.

But what I'd suggest, is shooting it 'out of the box' condition, after cleaning and oiling appropriately, then look for any issues. The 'hump' you're concerned with can also simply be the finish wearing from the inside of the revceiver. I don't find it abnormal at all after 450 rounds.

When I've called Sig CS, I've never been dissapointed, and in fact, found them to go beyond my expectations. Ymmv.

Just go shoot it, clean and inspect it, and have fun.

You are right, sir. I have edited the main post to be more straight forward. Believe me; I have every intention of shooting the rifle. I can't wait to get those Samson sights and see what she's capable of! I am still concerned about the 'Hump' / Bolt carrier situation, though, since my rifle shows signs of being susceptible to it. Again, only time will tell. Thanks to all who posted prior to the editing! Best!
