I've come to hate how low my metric sights sit on my FAL. Inches are taller and I can use a longer israeli front post to line everything up. Anyone know of an inch rear sight [preferably folding] for sale in the phoenix area?

You can, in a pinch, just zero the tall front by moving the short (metric) rear sight up the ramp, and use holdovers for range. BTW,what buttstock are you using? Different cheekwelds will raise (or lower) sight picture. IME, the Izzy short stocks give me the lowest cheekweld so the metric irons become more useable.

I have an ACE folding stock on it. I ended up ordering an isreali rear sight which is the same height as a inch pattern. Its about 3mm taller then my metric. I have to wait and order a isreali #4 front sight and spring plate before I put the rear on but I think this will greatly help with what I want out of the rifle.
