Has anyone had any experience with Rainier c4 rail mounted sights or Hayes research style sights? The Rainier's appear to be the same hight as a standard BUIS. The Hayes are lower and it would appear to give you a mp5 and or a sig 550 type sight picture. I have a ACOG TA31 RCO and do not want the sights to co-witness with the scope. The Hayes web site has been down for months and I have nnot been able to locate a set. Has anyone tried these sights?

I actually have Centurion C4 sights on mine. They're pretty nice.. The main gripe I have about them is the need for an HK sight tool to adjust them. They also sit at standard AR sight height vs. the lower HK 416 sights. I do like the sight picture though. The large round front sight and hood is very fast to pick up and center.


Scroll down a bit, and you'll seen mine.

Are they the same as the Rainier c4? I going to buy a set but I do not want them to interfere with the scope. How much lower are the 416 in comparison to yours?

TRP,

Yeah, the sights are the exact same as the Rainier ones. Honestly, I couldn't tell you the exact specs on the actual 416 sights. Maybe someone with first hand knowledge of them could enlighten us. I have only seen the 416s in pictures.. I believe the customer gallery on robarm.com has pics of a rifle with them mounted on it. If I had to guess based on my Mk1 Mod 0 eyeball.. I'd say about a 1/2" difference. The C4 sights are standard AR height and you can use either sight with any other AR sight. With regard to your scope and possible interference.. The best I could say that if you have a flat top AR or AR sights mounted on your XCR and THEY interfere w/ your scope, than these will interfere as well.

Hope that helps!

I just put a set of HK416 sites on. They are awesome. They are the perfect height and offer a better site picture. They a 1/4 of an inch shorter than ar rail mounted sites. if anyone is looking for a set e-mail Adam at [email protected]

$275. I am not sure how to post pic's. If you gone on the robarm web site the last pic in the customer guns section is an XCR with Hk sites.
