I don't want to put on some high-rise sights, mainly because I'm cheap but also because I don't want a big honkin' projecting front sight to snag on everything in the area and possibly put out the eyes of unsuspecting children. I'm planning on cutting a u-groove down the center of the rail, I figure it can be wide enough to use the sights but still have plenty of meat to support an optic.
Can somebody measure the thickness of the top of a factory 10/22 receiver to give me an idea how much material I can safely take off, or does anybody know the proper spec? I'd guess that I could go pretty thin w/o probs since it's only a .22, but I wanted to stay with factory specs just to be on the safe side.
