Iron sight question for DPMS Oracle.

Discussion in 'Shooting Gear and Storage' started by Renegade Ziggy, Oct 12, 2012.

  1. Just purchased a Oracle, found out the hard way :banghead: that it uses a railed gas block that sits lower which I guess throws the sights off, and obviously plastic sights are a no no due to heat. What would the intellectual people of THR recommend as far as iron sights go, will I be forced to buy special iron sights for this rifle?

    Can't go wrong there. That aluminum will last as long as the rifle will I'm sure.

    I had the same issue when i got my Sportical, I even called DPMS to ask, and they said same thing when looking for the front sight, make sure it states "gas block height".

    My Oracle upper came in last Wednesday. I ended up with this rail (laugh if you like, but it's made in the USA and solid as a rock):


    The photo is a little goofy, once installed, it is the same diameter for the entire length.

    It is captured like a carbine quad forend by the delta ring and internally by the handguard cap, but continues on past the front sight. It gave me another 4 inches of sight radius and allowed me to use the Magpul MBUS front sight I had laying around.

    I'll get a chance to shoot it this weekend, have you shot yours yet? I had a completed lower in the safe, and couldn't resist Midway's price for the Oracle upper.
