I raised my sights over 1/2". 14mm to be precise. Because my front sight post was perfectly centered in the front sight hood, I had an idea of adding a front sight to the top of the hood. My first thought was a shotgun bead. So researching, I found one with a tiny threaded post. I also found KNS Precision hooded cross hair replacement posts for the AK and AR. So I ordered all three.
