Hi Don, I had an adjustable. I added the flashlight and a dab of paint to the front sight and it  lights up like a Christmas tree. As for antique eyes I'm a candidate, me being old enough to remember Eisenhower as President. My understanding is when they went to the adjustable sight they adjusted the front sight by cutting it down or replacing it, so I guess they could be different hights,  Regards, Mike

Hi, maybe I had one with a short front sight. In my parts box I have several front  sights of different sizes. Like I said YMMY, hope you have better luck than me, regards, Mike

Did you have a flip sight or adjustable sight? I've got the later on my carbines  

I have the later ramp sights.

In most cases, when they replaced the rear sights they didn't bother to change the front sights. That is why so many carbines with adjustable rear sights shoot high.

Had that issue with my "Howachester", that was the 1st carbine I tried the Ultimak on. I eventually put a new front sight on it and that corrected the issue with that.
