Rear Sight Pinning

A New Demand for Carry Handle Sights

AR-10 and AR-15 carry handles are legal for use as a CMP service rifle. Although there is a fading demand for pinned rear sights, Keystone Accuracy continues to offer this service. Why handicap yourself with a clunky rear sight with spring loaded slop when you can get match rifle accuracy and repeatability out of your carry handle sight just as you can in a standard A2 upper? These carry handles can be serviced and quickly returned to you.

Due to a sharp increase in work load and a virtually nonexistant demand for this service, they will only be done during the event of a very rare slow production time.

Special Note Regarding Carry Handle Specific Sights

A carry handle uses a specific sight with a shorter elevation screw and a shorter sight base which is designed to work with the clearance allowed between the sight height and the Picatinny rail on the standard flat top receiver. This sight just allows elevation for approximately 600 yards. If shooting beyond 600 yards, a standard NM A2 sight can be installed and pinned on the carry handle with the additional modification of a .100" relief cut in the top of the Picatinny rail for the additional elevation screw protrusion out of the bottom of the carry handle assembly (see picture below). Because the A2 NM rear sight also has a taller sight body dimension, it is highly recommended that an "F" height front sight post (.030" higher than standard A2) is added to compliment the rear sight height. If selected, the cost additional relief cut is $20. Please call for additional details.


The cost of this modification is $150.00. All listed prices plus the cost of return shipping (insured) and any additional parts if needed.
