M4 rear sight replacement

Recommended Posts

Hello,

Does any one know of a low -profile sight replacement for the ghost ring? I use my M4 for sporting clays from time to time ( I know, it’s not remotely made for this type of soothing) but it is fun challenge regardless.

the rear ghost sight makes it nearly impossible to track the clays mainly because the ghost sight protective vertical wings.

i was thinking of removing the rear sight altogether but a low profile replacement would be ideal

any thoughts?

Assi -

I use my M4 for 3-Gun and occasionally for Trap just to practice manual of arms.  I was never happy with the Ghost Ring and housing for the same reasons you mentioned.  Even for non-flyer clays on a stand it disrupts your peripheral vision as you swing from target to target.  Not sure why anyone would need a ghost ring on a shotgun anyway, but I'm sure someone on this forum will explain it to me!  ;-{)

I put a Burris Fast Fire red dot on mine and it helps dramatically.  You'll see others have done the same with a Trijicon RMR.  The red dot sits well above the ghost ring housing so there is no obstructing your FOV, however, there is no way to co-witness the sights if your optic fails.  It will change your cheek weld a little as well but I've rarely noticed it -- just adapted.

If I hadn't fallen in love with pictures of the M4 years ago and chased it down like the hottest blonde in the bar, I would have been better served with a 3-Gun purpose built M2.  Lust at first sight I guess... .  LIve and Learn (again).

You could also grind down the wings. My 870 ghost ring doesn’t have the wings and you do have a much better field of view. I may go ahead and do it myself. :)

Really?  Not suggesting you're wrong, but that's something I've been thinking about -- get rid of that shit!
