Looking for a M14 look a like front site base.

Hello, does anyone know were one can find a front sight base that is threaded and takes m14 front sights kind like the Smith FSB. This is for a 180 mini 14 rifle trying to copy a ebr, I figure if this is out there it would make my day.

Sunflower Outdoor Sports has most of the mini 13/30 brakes currently available.

Ruger Mini 14/30 gear

Midway has a Ramline with slots.

Welcome TrueGrits! Like you, I'm looking for a good front sight / flashhider combo that mimics my M1A's (M14). I've looked at all of the offerings, including those that duplicate the M14A, however, the flashhider portion is 3" long just like the M14's and I think that it's too long for the smaller carbine size of the Mini.

AMK Tactical makes a nice but spendy ($130) front sight/flashhider combo, but it too is 3" long and to me, doesn't fit the Mini. Choate also makes one w/o HERE the FO for a more affordable price but it too is too long for my taste.

The best, cost efficient, and decent sized version is the Choate seen HERE (blued steel also available), however, I would prefer the FH portion be a bit longer, say 2" long.
