    "F" Marked Front Sight vs Standard A2 Front Sight

    I recently read on one of the kit vendor's websites--think it was DelTon--that the "F" marked sight will not line up with the sights on a carry handle. If you are using a carry handle upper receiver, the site says, buy the standard A2 front sight.

    If that's the case, does that mean most aftermarket rear sights (BUIS) to mount on a flat top would also not line up with the "F" marked front sight?

    I think they do line up with the standard A2 front sight, correct?

    Then, what's the purpose of the "F" marked sight? I see a lot of assembled barreled upper receivers have the "F" sight.

    I used a f marked barrel with a a2 upper at 100 yards the front sight was screwed in almost all the way you need a shorter sight post.
