Meprolight Night Sights


Recommended Posts

I did a forum search and couldn't find any threads that answer my question.


I received a set of meprolight night sights as a Christmas present. Looking at the package, it says they are for M4's built before 2002. Is there a big difference between pre-2001 sights and post 2001 sights? i.e. can I (or a good gunsmith) make these work, or do they go into the parts bin?

The front sight on early M1014 retained the older design from the M1 and M3 Ghost ring; which is that it only contact the barrel on two thin legs. The newer style is a full profile contact which must use a shorter threaded sight.


I have never seen a M4 that used the older dovetail usually on the HK imported Benellis.
