“F” Marked Sight Base What is an “F” marked front sight base?

I get this question every now and then. “Why don’t you use ‘F’ marked front sight bases?”

I recently found this excellent video online that explains the original reason for the “F” marked front sight base, and how it really doesn’t make a great deal of difference whether the front sight base is the taller “F” marked or not. It usually boils down to a few extra clicks of front sight post adjustment which if excessive, can easily be remedied with a .040″ taller front sight post.
