The sights are in the system(reg force only possibly), although they're plastic, not rubber. I've already broken two. I prefer it over the elcan anyday. I used to leave my elcan in my locker but now they want us to carry both, elcan as primary, iron as secondary.

Just a point for discussion. Does anyone find that a whole generation of soldiers have missed out on marksmanship on the classic iron cast sights? Meaning, if the ELCAN sights were to be blown of one's weapon in the heat of battle, would they then become sitting ducks....? It seems that today's infanteer may be at a disadvantage in the name of technological progress.

Perhaps, but speaking from my limited experience with iron sights, I found it easy enough to adapt to the C6's sights. Would you consider them equal to rifle iron sights?
I find myself able to shoot better with these than Elcans.

In any case, marksmanship principles are still the same in the end are they not? The only changes being the magnification and the sight picture.

actually, on our QL2, the entire lesson plan is still based on the iron sights. The use of the scope is somewhat of an addendum on the lesson.
I also didn't find the transition to the iron C6 sights difficult. One thing: what idiot decided to put a scope on the C9?
