I have a question for you hi-point pro's I just got a red dot scope (barska 30mm) and my slightly used 995ts came with two front sights one longer and one a little shorter wich one works best for you guys to co-witness with the red dot

:welcome: to HPT, GUY.

Don't know the answer to your question, but trial and error would be easy enough. I would try the taller sight first. IIRC the TS uses the taller sight due to the rear sight being higher. I assume you still have the rear sight on the TS, since you ask about co-witness and that can't be accomplished without both front and rear sights.

I'd give you an answer but it would all be BS since I don't own a Hipopint carbine. :funny: normally that wouldn't stop me from giving advice though if I had some form insight into it. But I'm actually still not sure what co-witnessing is. I'm gonna stick with the older milsurp rifles myself. The newer scary black rifles don't have a lot of interest for me. I DO like wood stocked AK's however. :LOL: :mdr: Actually I like any gun in a wood stock. :thumb:

without the rear sight its kind of pointless to have the front sight lined up with your scope, if the scope is zeroed in, the front sight should at least line up with the dot

I figured if the red dot lines up with the front sight you are good but that doesn't always seems right I guess.

Codger is correct, the shorter site post is for a monkey gun (classic) the taller post is for the TS models.

Ok sounds good so I'm going to set the red dot to the front sight and go shooting this week I like the front sight on the rifle taking it off looks too funky in my opinion.

You mean set your front site to the red dot? I always sited in the red dot first, then the front site to match to it.

Well I assumed the front post was fixed so basically all you had to do is let the dot match the center of the front post. Sorry I'm new to these red dot scopes.

No on the carbines you can move the front post up and down, if you loosen the 2 (5/64 allen) screws on the under side of the site base, you can move it left and right slightly.
