I am considering an A5 marker and I was wondering if the standard iron sights (diopter sights) use the same front sight post as the real HK firearms (G3, MP5, HK416, all use the diopter sights). I would like to replace the front sight post with a post that has tritium. I would also recommend this to everyone (if possible) as they greatly increase your capabilities in low-light. I know of the 'glow paint', but that is really no replacement for good tritium.
ETA: For those who are wondering, XS Sights makes a tritium replacement. Yeah, they're spendy, but worth it in my opinion.
ETA again:If they do not use the same post, I suppose I could get a 'shroud' for the gun that has a full picatinny rail on top and install AR rail mounted sights. AR front sight posts and rear peeps with tritium are plentiful and inexpensive. What would you recommend that will provide a full top rail? This is an expensive route but I already know every rail mounted sight on the market so it would be easy to put together the way I want. I'd go with either the Larue rear sight/LMT front, MI flips, or maybe the new Magpul flip ups whenever they're released.
