I have an action. (Lock) An FN MAuser. I have a Kreiger barrel on order. A number 4 radiused taper to be finished at 21 inches. It is .411" groove with a 1 in 14 twist. I have a McMillan stock on order and chose to go with the classic, straight with cheek piece, in their woodland camo pattern. ( could always repaint it to my favorite O.D. Green)
I will install a barrrel band front swivel mount and use the McMillan installed rear sling swivel stud. I plan to have it parkerized by a smith here in town. The question is what do I do for iron sights. I want sights, I must have sights, but do I go with standard on the barrel NECG's, the Brockman ghost ring rear and front post or shoudl I install a quarter rib with scope mounts for a scout scope and receiver ghost ring sights? Or some other option?
This is my 400 CQB rifle. The get down and tumble in the mud, the blood and the alder leaves and sort out the good guys from the bad. It has to be very rugged and quick to aim.
I have lock, stock and barrel on hand or on order and need to get the sights coming soon. I have bullets coming, four different weights from four different makers. I have dies ordered and sixmonths from now it will be a finished project, if all goes well. It is my 2007 project, only a little late. What do you think about sights?
