    Wouldn't you want a bit more clearance than that to keep it free floating?

    Granted I donít have any of those. So have irons.
    But my etched reticle prism sights and LVPOs are still working in daylight and any backlighting.

    I'd have cut one more notch back on the top rail, and down to the second row of lightning cuts just above the side rails along the sides.

    Yes maybe. With service rifle comp firing schedule no, it doesnít seem to make any contact I can detect on the ďaluminum blackĒ cut surfaces. Iím sure depends on the rail quality and attach (Aero Enhanced upper integrated rail mount is pretty solid and aligned). With a faster firing schedule and less attention to rail mount yes, and if making it for general FSBs rather than this WOA clamp design exactly...
    But itís an idea available to anyone.

    (And likely non-compliant at any SR comps but regional matches where I shoot)

    Its kinda funny to me that everyone is worried about their backup sights being mounted on a rail with all the DBALS etc...Ive seen mounted on rails...

    Looking at this thread, I have a feeling that those who care about having an FSB don't really use laser aiming devices, or at least don't consider them to be a primary consideration.

    Speaking for myself, I'll use a laser or optic if I have one, but anything run by a battery can be visited by the Gremlins. I run irons as a "They Absolutely HAVE To Work" last-ditch backup (never mind that I tend to use military-issue configurations as "clone templates" and almost all my builds are adapted to personal needs from those baselines), so I want them absolutely failsafe--the only reason I have a folder rear on my Mk 18-ish is that my preferred sight manufacturer doesn't make a fixed and never replied to my email asking if they could suggest a way to rig it for "permanent up," and the only reason my M4 has a folder is it's what the USMC "cookbook" I was trying to replicate requires.
    You really have to ask why Conservatives have guns? Because Liberals block freeways, burn cities, throw Molotov cocktails, loot, turn over cop cars, and think this behavior is Socially Acceptable.

    Just so its clear to anyone else who happens on this thread in the future, its pure stupidity to take a hacksaw to your rail just to make a FSB fit. In this case to meet some match requirement Ill give it a pass but if you're thinking about doing this on serious use rifle: don't. You are compromising the strength and rigidity of the rail when you start taking chunks off it that some engineer who designed it thought should have been there in the first place.
