I need to shave the top of my FSB off of my carbine length LMT, so I can mount a mid-length FF rail over it(to cover up the cut FSB), and then mount a flip up sight on the rail.






Yes I realize I can just put on a low profile gas block, but I prefer the strength(pinned) of the standard FSB. Anyone know what place can do this for me? I dont have the tools to do it.

I would imagine any decent machine shop could do it easily. Just don't assume they know exactly what you want.

But for $25 or so you could buy a dremel and do it yourself. Or are you talking about somebody doing the install of the FF too ?

ADCO right there in Ohio :cool:

A dremel and an oxide deburring bit can do it. I'd imagine any gunsmith or AR-smith can do it for you for probably close to $25.

It's aluminum. Got a hacksaw blade and file you can use? Sure. it will take some time, but slow and careful might be better than fast and OOPS!

My very-slowly-coming-together LMT build is going to have a Larue rail on it. Yeah, it's a little pricey, but I like it. The built-in QD mount will save me 30 bucks or so on a DD rail mount as well.

The 10.0 or 11.0 would be good for a 16" carbine with shaved FSB...

That....is VERY sick. I think thats what the guy has on the lower AR in the above picture. I'm very afraid however to ask what that runs price wise. LaRue ain't cheap.

True enough...it is good stuff though. Here are Mark's prices: AR Handguards

The 7.0 I'll be using is listed at $247, it'll be a bit cheaper where I get it and then save 30 on the rail mount and I can't complain too much.
