I am in the process of building up an AR.  The upper I have does not have iron sight, but it does have a gas block machined for a front sight.  I plan to put a folding front sight of some sort since the rifle will primarily be used with a scope (IOR 2.5-10x42FFP).

I looked a little and I may not have enough room on the upper receiver to properly mount the scope without using some sort of a rail that is a little longer than the upper receiver.  While collectin information on this I stumbled onto the ARMS Swan Sleeve with an integrated flip-up rear sigh:

What's the scoop on these?  Do the work well?  I generally do not have much experience with ARMS products (except for their rings).

Thanks.

Koshkin, have you look around on AR15.com for info on the Swan Sleeve?

Seems like I've seen some posts about them on there from time to time.
