Curious about if anyone has any suggestions for iron sights for the dpms CLASSIC  A4 177? I have the scope but have had trouble getting it dialed in but have had better luck using irons on break barrels so figure its worth a shot to see if anyone has any suggestions for on a very limited budget?

Ended up putting the red/green dot scope I had on it.

Sorry you didn’t get any response, Ricky. I have a UTG 2-16x44 scope on mine. I was curious if anyone would suggest a good set of iron sights, I’d suspect any aftermarket set could work on the slotted Weaver rails. I’d think a decent red-dot should work too. Best of luck with it.

I bought one of these for a Hatsan springer, it's held up really well, I'm not sure you can beat it for the price.

Mine didn't come with any, just one of the centerpoint scopes. Was kinda surprised

They came with either/or… the flip up sights or the scope. I broke the original scope and 2 Simmons scopes after that one. I realized what was happening and have shot heavier pellets ever since and put on the UTG scope. Mine shoots H&N Baracuda Match 10.65 gr. @ 795 FPS & has held up nicely now for a few years.

Ah ok, yeah I wasn't real thrilled about the stock scope, will definitely keep that in mind about the heavier pellets as I had wondered about that as well(have been going between the cphp's and the crosman lead free  ones I had picked up to try). Here's the red dot I ended up putting on it its by some company called "Westlake"  had originally gotten it for either this or my 1322 but decided it would be better here and put a different scope on the 1322.  Seems to be a good fit though so far
