I have to stick with the muffs, I can stand anything sticking in my ear....and I spent way to much on my ear protection. I hope KT can rethink their sights. You shouldn't have to make big changes to get on the sights.
I'm hard headed I will makes this work for me....thanks again
You don't have to go to the Red Lion. Just remove the front and rear sights (they are just an annoyance when using the red dot) and put them in storage (easily done - I took mine off today in less than 2 minutes) and mount an inexpensive red dot (I have seen them online for as little as $19.95 in the last week) on the top Picatinny rail of the plastic fore end. Some red dots come with risers, but you can get them in 1/2", 3/4", and 1" heights to bring the red dot up to the height you are comfortable with.
Once you have a working combination, you can use it as a base for upgrading as desired.
Also, I can't deal with anything stuck in my ear. I used to use big muffs. They were the only ones available. About 2 years ago, I bought a set of very thin muffs. They are just as good, if not better than the big ones.
