I am not actually going to be shooting formal competitions but I would like a nice set of sights for more precise target shooting.

I currently have a 20" HBAR rifle with a removable carry handle.

I would like to replace the sight components off of the rifle without having to buy a complete national match carry handle. I could buy one outright I guess but I would like to save some money if possible.

I seen a few products on Midway that are to retrofit the sights on an ar with national match parts but in one of the reviews the reviewer stated that it would not work with a carry handle.

I would also prefer 1/4" adjustments but 1/2" would be satisfactory.

My question is what should I do? But a complete handle? http://www.rockriverarms.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=category.display&category_id=292

Will any of the following work with a standard detachable carry handle?

In all honesty, I would suggest buying the carry handle already set up. For $165 dollars I think it would be worth it if it is a quality part. I've never set one up. I have a flat top and prefer no carry handle on mine.

I noticed that someone makes a block that allows the installation of a Lyman Peep sight. I am not keen on losing the rugged design of the carry handle type sight but I know that the lyman sights are a quality product.
