    I've redone this posting to broaden its scope. If anyone has any other ideas, I've also started a suggestion thread in the Accessories board here:

    I'm looking to make a higher front sight for my Hi-Point 995TS carbine. I tried to do so with a square shanked screwdriver but can't find a drill bit that will drill the hole without burning up in the hardened steel. So I'm looking to try something different. A 1/2 inch by 1/2 inch by 4 inch block of micarta, poly resin, other synthetic material would work. I'm looking for something that would cut and shape easily but be rather durable.

    Does anyone have anything lying around that they have no use for? I'd gladly take/purchase some of it off your hands.
