\n I have a Sabre 1:7 5.56 barrel that I tried to put an FSB on. The barrel was pre-drilled for the FSB, but the FSB I have will not come close to the holes that were pre-drilled.
\nIs there anything I should know about before attempting to redrill holes into this barrel to fit the FSB?\n

    \n If using and A2 or F height fsb, just drill and tap the fsb for 5 set screws. 4 on the sides and 1 underneath. It will not go anywhere and gives you a Windage adjustable fsb so you can get your mechanical zero the same as your no-wind zero. I run this set up and have zero concerns.

    Good idea. Only issue is, the guy I\'m building it for is looking for a "close as possible" retro look.\n
