Question Flip front sight compatable with fixed G36 rear

Laidies and Gentelmen,

Since installing a red dot on my beloved G36C I have been forced to remove the front sight as it won't co-wittness. I really feel like it needs a front sight of some sort for use when/if the re dot dies or breaks. I do not want to replace the rear sight if I do not have to so, yanking the back sight off and istalling a matched set of BUIS. Does anyone know if normal flip front sights work with the stock fixed rear sight on a C style top rail?

Many thanks for your help in advance.

To answer your question, no.

WE makes a kit for their G39c that consists of some crazy weird stock and an ingenious upper rail with flip-up sights.

Buy it for the rail and sell the stock.

I was able to co witness with a cantilever mount on my aimpoint using the MP7 sights. I used the First Factory rail kit which replaces the back sight with a rail piece. Nice thing about the MP7 sights is it gives you both low profile and flip up.

Also, Italian, Classic Army makes that same rail system. I think its modeled after a KAC system.

They make another one similar to the one the WE kit has. Just can't seem to find it on Spartan or AEX.

Well, it sucks that nothing will work with the stock rear sight. I will probably put this on the back burner for now. I put the stock front sight back on this evening and while I still cannot co-witness it does "ghost" and not get in the way too much. It looks like to achieve the folding set up I will either need to get the flat rail adapter and a matched set of BUIS, or another top rail entirely.

I will leave this up and see if there is any other ideas out there. Thanks for the help so far gents!
