I'm installing an A2 rear sight assembly. I have a schematic with parts list. I am very familiar with the AR-15 but have not yet detailed striped a rear sight. I do not have a rear sight tool.

If anyone has the time and is willing, could you please post me instructions/tips/secrets on the steps? I can not find a weblink with instructions.

Pages 273 and 277 give exploded views of the parts to the A2 rear sight.
If you are mechanically inclined, you'll figure out the rest. Work on a clean countertop with a bath towel spread out to keep the tiny ball bearings from rolling away and getting lost.

That is an excellent manual. Do would you have a link to a similar repair manual for the M14?
