Another AR nooby question
I'm really new to center fire AR's, so forgive me for asking simpleton questions in a piece meal fashion. The more I "play" with it, the more questions I come up with. I'm just trying to better understand the "whys" of the design of my new rifle. Why isn't the front sight located closer to the muzzle, say right behind the muzzle brake? The barrel is only 16" long. And this is a civilian model. Or is it just another case of easier production to copy the military model?
