    Default Cutting USC Front Site Help and References!

    I have an USC converted to be a UMP SBR clone but I am hating how the front sight gets in the way when I am looking through my red dot. Do they sell an aftermarket front with with the shape being a U instead of an O? OR has anyone just cut theirs off?

    Here are some reference pics

    Just get a taller mount for the dot.

    Just cut it. It's easily replaceable.

    Dang man, I wish you posted this like a week ago. Been slowing cleaning up/pruning down crap after a move. Tidied up my parts box and tossed out an old USC sight that I cut.

    Anyhow, like kbinmt says, they are cheap.

    Use a hacksaw, if you can, not a dremel. Go slow in either case. And I suggest making a test cut at 12 oclock first, just to get your process / speed down. Clean it up afterwards with a small file and some sand paper. It'll look factory if you take your time.
    Own: HK91, SR9, SP5k, G36k, HK416, P30L, 2x P8, 2x P8A1, USP9, USP9 FDE
    Future: Done, until HK comes out with something new & nifty. Might start building an FNH collection.

    Didn't realize they are that cheap to replace. Time to start cutting away!

    Should look something like this when you’re done:

    Go slow. Use a Dremel for the first cut, then file to smooth it out.

    You’d can measure down from center with a dial caliper to make sure that it’s even side-to-side, but ultimately, eyeball works!
