Description Technical Specs
Replacement front sight kit for the AR2078 and AR2078A. Also very similar to the front sight for the AR2079, but not exactly the same. Ideal for "AR" models that have had their front sights removed. Includes "aperture" front sight element only.

5 of 5 Industry AR2078 front sight kit March 4, 2019
Reviewer: C. Rhoades from Illinois  
Excellent kit. I ordered two. With a couple light mallet taps it slipped perfectly tight over a umarex barrel. Only thing wrong is where I did receive the peep reticle, both kits were missing the post sight reticle shown in the picture, which is the one I wanted to use. Not about to complain as the price was so right. Anyway, I can probably fashion a post reticle from sheet metal or find one somewhere.

4 of 5 MOdded to fit QB78 Deluxe January 26, 2018
Reviewer: Joseph from Fort Wayne, IN  
I didn't use the roll pin.  Instead I drilled a 1/8" hole top center 1.325" from the front of the sight. I lightly sanded the inside to remove any burr, lubed the barrel with silicone oil and lightly tapped the sight until it fit flush with the barrel crown.  The original QB78 Deluxe had a FO sight that used a drilled and tapped barrel hole.  I used the original #4 screw to mount the new sight.

I deducted one star since the sight I received from Archer had the rear retaining ring seized. I had to use a shotgun choke wrench to force it free and clean the threads before re-inserting.  Apparently someone had previously had the same problem because that ring arrived  with scratch marks whereas the front ring was unmarked.

5 of 5 Worth Every Penny (and more) May 4, 2012
Reviewer: William J. Price from Bealeton, VA United States  
First, I called Archer airguns and Stephen answered on the third ring. Yes, the sight would fit my QB79, though it would require just a a bit of filing on my part. Instead of filing the top of my barrel for a roll pin, i wrapped one layer of "gaffer tape" 'round the barrel and press-fit the sight over that. Tightening the screw moderately without using the roll pin resulted in a very good fit. Took all of five minutes.

The sight is all metal, made very well, and works beautifully. My dealings with Archer airguns are always great.
