The AR-24 is a truly superb firearm. Wonderfully accurate. It feels great in the hand. Smooth trigger pull. Little apparent recoil. High-cap mags. I like the SA or DA capability. The gun has much going for it, but the downsides outweigh the good despite my best efforts to make it work.
First and foremost, my fixed-sight gun shoots at least 4 inches low at 25 feet. And Armalite has no replacement fixed sights nor any adjustable sights available that would correct the problem. And when I tried to find out the dimensions of the dovetail cuts in the slide in search of an after-market solution, I learned that Armalite has no idea the dimensions of the dovetail cuts in their own product
(at least the product they distribute). Which is probably a moot issue anyway, because I think the sights are all but welded in place. I tried repeatedly to remove the sights from their dovetail cuts, all without success. If they are not welded in place, then certainly a hydraulic press of great strength was used to mount them at the factory.
And beyond the lack of help from the factory, there is no independent after-market support for the gun, nor any on the horizon that I can see.
So, despite being much impressed with the gun, I am moving it on down the line and will likely replace it with a CZ.
