Rugged, Quick-Deploy Backup System; Minimal Profile When Folded
Spring-loaded sights deploy at the push of a button to provide instant backup sighting. Quick Deploy System locks securely and requires a firm, positive press of the button to deploy or retract the sight, so it won’t accidentally activate when bumped—these sights stay where you put them. Minimal profile when folded—only .435” high—with radiused edges and a smoothly curved front surface to prevent snagging on foliage, gear, or clothing. Crossbolt and side bar provide solid attachment to MIL-STD 1913 Picatinny or Weaver-style rail systems. All-aluminum construction is lightweight, yet plenty strong to handle the hard knocks of tactical operations, with a durable, scratch-resistant hardcoat anodized finish for extra surface strength. Front Sights have mil-spec A2 post that adjusts for elevation; same-plane alignment with rear sights. Available with thick, protective ears that shield the post or an H&K-style hood for even greater security.
