Sorry it took me so long to get this pic posted. Heres what I'm thinking put a pop up front sight on the ultimak, then a dog leg rail with a pop up rear site. What sites would be the proper heigth? and would they co withness with an aimpoint clone?

It looks like someone removed the FSB to thread the barrel and decided not to replace it. If you want to go with iron sights I am thinking an AR flip up front sight may work with a rear sight mounted to a dogleg or beryl mount, but there is no way it will co-witness with that red dot as it sits. From the pic it looks like the red dot would sit too low, you may be able to pull it off with a AR style riser though. If it was me i would go with a new FSB and a set of AK Tech sights, they would probably co-witness nicely with the red dot as it sits right now.

Ace has a front sight that clamps to the gas block, but you need to get the front sight post and and windage stud separately. Kavar has the russian fs/gb combo in stock, but I doubt it will be for long. You could then always get the barrel for the rear sight, or go with the TWS or Tech Sights options if you prefer a peep.
