Irons?
Krebs rear ghost ring, Dinzag front sight block.

But really what are you wanting to use them for?

I like to shoot in bowling pin matches. Gun shoots high with OE sights, have to compensate by aiming low.

That should do it.

Krebs is good. I prefer the dinzag front sight, but the krebs peep rear is a good part.

Make sure the gas tube is supported before you try to drive the sight out. There are some lugs that lock into the trunnion and they may bend or break off if only the receiver is supported.


Prodigy.... an unusual accomplishment.

Use a dremel to cut across the sight almost all the way through. It will come out much easier.

Will the new sight (peep sight from Krebs) go in relatively easy?

Decided to drop off my Saiga at my local gunsmith to have the Krebs combat sights installed. I didn't want to muck up my nice gun. They are going press the rear sight out and the new peep sight in.
