I picked up a pather lite w/ front site tonight, and now need to start thinking about a rear site. I'd like to have both a rear site for backup as well as a red dot, but I don't want to put a $500 eotech on a $600 rifle. What are my options?

I went with a 2x Aimpoint, Midway has them on sale from time to time. I also put an ARMS rear flip up sight on it.

I found this here as a possible flip up rear sight, and wanted to make sure it going to function with the rifle.

Any thoughts?

Blarelli: I ordered one earlier today actually. I'll let you know how it works on my CMMG flat-top.

At the range one day, one of the ears broke off of an Arms #40L buis I had on the rifle, so I purchased this UTG rear sight for ~$20 at the range store as a quick fix. Sorry to say, but it is junk. It has a very weak detent and no locking mechanism to keep it upright, so even the recoil of a 556 round can make it fall. It really is a last resort buis that is, imo, not intended for daily use...might work well for a .22conversion, though.

I'd sooner spend 20$ more and get a plastic magpul rear sight...has to be better.

Hey man, I have a whole locker full of "wish I'd waited" items, lol. At least it was just $20 this time. Cheap lesson that keeps on giving.

If nothing else, it'll be a good "emergency" backup when I get a GOOD sight on it, lol.

I used a flip-up that clamps on the rail. It came from Natchez Shooters Supply. I don't recall the brand, but it was a name brand and wasn't expensive.
