    New to forum, got 4095 around first week of Jan. have put 60 rounds through it. It shot to the left. I had to move my rear sight almost all the way to right to get it on the bullseye. Anyone else have to shift their rear sight this far.
    Second question has anyone modded their front sight? My issue is the ring it cast a shadow so in shaded conditions I have a hard time seeing the front even if it has been painted a bright color. I was thinking of drilling holes around the ring or cutting some of the top of the ring out to allow more light in.

    Welcome to the forum!..... A little cheap, neon nail polish may help.

    Check your front sight post. It may be canted off to the right.

    Welcome to the asylum...

    I cut the sides of ring even with the front post and filed the post to make it thinner This helped me a lot.

    Bull is right. I have been using the nail polish trick for 40 years. You can also use fluorescent paint. But, may need to recharge after a few hours.

    Both my wife's 40 and my 45 were pretty much dead on out of the box. She laughs at me sighting In scope. She hasn't touched her sight in 3 years.

    Adjust the front sight. It goes up n down and side to side too.
     
  10. Thanks. Now I see the screw for adjusting up and down, but nothing for left/right. Mines a sold piece of steel, if I move it to either side the rail will move with it...

    Yet another sticky idea. FO/RS rules of sighting in your irons on the carbine, and methods of un-jacking your sights.
     
  13. I saw thise, but wouldnt that also move the rail??? Also you know how I get the key tool fir my carbine?
     
  14. Excellent idea...

    You're just adjusting it a fraction (little goes a long way). Tiny worthless rail will be fine. Call MoM for a free tool.

    Yes, the lower rail is held in place by the front sight post mount. HOWEVER, it's a piece of junk and only pressure fit to the stock and FSP. It's actually garbage, useful only for a bipod or flashlight at most and a few of us have just simply removed them entirely from our carbines. Don't worry about shifting the lower rail honestly. My carbine's FSP was canted to the right and throwing off my sights and required adjustment. I would rather shoot straight and have room on the sight for further adjustment than worry about a piece of rail. Just my $0.02 though.

    I wouldn't even trust it for that. A light? Sure. Just needs to point in the general direction.

    I attached the quantifier "at most" to my thoughts on the rail's potential uses.

    I actually got two tools with my 4095. I ordered one with the fore grip and there was a tool in the grip and one in the accessory bags.
    I will also check the front sight is canted.
    Going to put second coat of hi visibility red on the FSP. Still think I'm going to open up the front sight ring for more light on the FSP.
    Thanks for all the replies.

    check the bottom of the forward grip. turn the little door in the bottom and see if the tool is in there...
