I'd been wanting to get rid of my carry handle for a while so I decided to mod it.

Original sight/handle.



First step remove the handle part.


Second step round the corners and slant.


Third step remove the forward part of the bottom sight and straighten up all the lines. Still haven't done this .

OK this is what I did. I cut the forward part of the handle then cut a slant on the remaining sight part. Used the trusty old demil to cut the handle and slant the sight then rounded the corners and sharpedes with small file. I painted the areas where I cut and filed with black model car paint.



Still need to do.

Thanks. I like that OD green against the black.

Once I get it finished I'm going to have to paint it. I still have some Molyresin so I think that's what I'm using.

It looks like there is a rail under the handle. If that is the case then it seems like not to bad an idea.

There is a rail under the A3 flattop receiver because the carry handle is removable ;)

I wouldn't chop the carry handle off of an A2 :eek:

Okay I finaly got around to cutting the last part off. Here is a roughly finished sight I just need to smooth things out and change the angle a bit.
