http://www.lewismachine.net/product.php?p=67&cid=2&session=a5b23ddbacc7f42fa3f5e01df7efec42 front and http://www.lewismachine.net/product.php?p=65&cid=2&session=a5b23ddbacc7f42fa3f5e01df7efec42 rear do you prefer them to these http://www.rainierarms.com/?page=shop/detail&product_id=604 just trying to decide, I heard the HK 416 sights are shorter, what would work better w/ my XCR-L 5.56? at this point price wise I don't have a preference. Would really appreciate responses and information on either

The LMT units are fully functional, but unfortunately do not fold. Therefore I went with Troys since I wanted to use an optic as primary. They don't have the range adjustment of the LMTs, but they do fold.

I am not familiar with the other ones you have there, but they look like non-folding HK-ish style sights to me.

Brownells do an HK style rotating turret sight. It works well on one of my rifles.

The main reason many are drawn to 100% real HK 416 sights is because they sit lower than AR15 sights; some believe 416 BUIS offer a tighter cheek weld with the XCR standard stock. Its a matter of preference. Be sure you are getting real HK 416 sights though. Knock offs are made for standard AR15's meaning they are taller

LMT rear sights were built at the request of Naval Surface Warfare Center, Crane Division. Prior to that, the Navy was cutting carry handles. The sights are incredibly durable and adjustable, but they are heavy and dont fold which clutters the sight picture when using optics.
