Front flip-up sight is made of tough, metal-reinforced polymer with steel apertures for both light weight and durability. Sights snap up into position instantly under robust spring pressure when the finger pad is depressed, and can be easily retracted to the folded position with one hand. Front sight is designed to be mounted to a handguard rail on the same plane as the receiver rail; it is not designed to be mounted on a gas block. Rear sight available separately.
