Not the exact one (nor in use with Krebs rear peep) but no reason why it shouldn't work just fine.

The one I have by HiViz, https://www.amazon.com/HIVIZ-Front-s.../dp/B003S4CT18
--works fine with standard rear ak sight leaf.

Only issue I had with mine after 1st install on the build I went to the Range for zero/sight in and the damn little fiber optic tube had broken and fallen out (spares that came with the sight were in the package on my workbench at home)
So it was a wasted trip to the range except for function check.
After reinstalling the new fiber optic tube and reinstalled the front post into the fsb I put a little dab of gorilla glue/super glue on it to secure it, been in use for over 500 rounds with no issues.

What I meant was. On my new build I'm debating on this front sight with either a fuller rear sight or a Krebs rear peep. I'm debating on using either the fiber optic front or the xs tritium white stripe.

Ordered this yesterday from polenar tactical. It's supposed to arrive in about 10 days supposedly from Slovenia. I'll be pairing it with a krebs custom rear.
