    Has anyone come up with a rear sight replacement for the 995TS? The OEM sight takes up a ridiculous amount of the top rail. I have seen pictures from those who have cut the OEM sight down. I might cut mine down, but I wanted to ask the question first. Thanks!

    I don't have a suggestion, but I do have a spare if you want to pay shipping I'll send it to you to experiment with

    sc487,

    Thank you for the offer, but I don't think I want to cut down an OEM sight. What I was really hoping for was a "flip up", but I guess that is not going to happen. Thanks again.

    Does that mean you want the rear sight?

    Hey Wingman,

    The flip-ups should work. I THINK we had a member use a flip-up rear and the stock FSP, but I'm not sure if it was a smooth set-up to sight in. My brain isn't functioning right now, but I'll see if I can find something.

    I was just tagging this thread to check replies. the optics I have on 2 of my carbines requires the removal of the rear sight. I bought a used 995 that is missing the hardware to mount it. Let me know in a PM what you want for it if you really want to get rid of it. It will allow me to experiment. :)
