Looks good! Sights line up OK? Have you tested at the range yet?

Lost the underside front rail though. Might be a little close to the rear site as far as line up. May work, may shoot a little low.

Thanks,
Yes just got thru 400 rounds of test and everything worked great.
The sight was loosened and moved and then re-aligned with a simple piece of 3/16" aluminum flat bar and it came right back in.
The threaded muzzle device body, attached with Loctite 620 and set screw did not budge.
The sight view is great, much better than factory and the sight post is a Tapco SKS post adjustable for elevation.
I'm trying to gauge interest for this sight and steel threaded body for the 995.
Estimated price for the sight is 48.00 with a tool and shipping included.
Estimated price for the device body is 38.00 with Loctite 620.
I appreciate the continuing opinions.

Oh yeah, I did open up the rear peep to .093 (3/32")

Been busy Ex.

I was wondering if you were going to open up the rear peep, or use an optic.
