I have not said much of it, but this past January, I broke down and bought an AR. It is a DPMS, 20" with a fixed stock. (I don't have a camera, right now.) My sister was given the choice of models, and she wanted the one similiar to her Basic Training rifle.
Okay, whatever. I did insist upon a flat-top model, so I could play with optics.
So, I ordered a Lucid LD7 through Crusader Weaponry, and it is really
nice! I have no complaints, and that is the only way I had shot during daylight.
So, it happened that my sister's suitor had re-qualification on Monday, so Sunday we shot it with the detachable carry handle iron sights. In short, they suck. With the 200 yard peep sight, it was passable, but the CQB ghost ring was lacking - either that, or the guy pulling the trigger was.
I just have a hard time shooting the AR, and the iron sights seem to exaggerate my problem. My AK, on the other hand, is much more familiar to me, and I much prefer the sight setup.
I have read online, guys gushing about the AR's sights, while at the same time maligning those of the AK... What am I missing?
