Rugged, Reliable Backup Sighting; Same Height As Factory Iron Sights
Rugged, flip-up sights provide failsafe backup when your primary optic or red dot sight fails. Sight body flips up easily when you need it and locks securely in place under powerful spring pressure and two locking detent balls, so it can’t be accidentally bumped down until you hit the spring-loaded button on the left side of the base to retract it. Positions apertures at the same height as factory sights, simplifying integration of these sights on your rifle. Base clamps securely to any military or commercial Picatinny rail using a standard flathead screwdriver. No protruding knobs or levers to catch on brush, clothing, or other equipment. Sturdy, protective “ears” shield posts and apertures from impact. Front sights clamp to handguard accessory rail on the same plane as flattop and are only ½" high when folded. All models have M4-type post that’s elevation adjustable in ½ MOA increments. HK-Style Front - distinctive “globe” shape that aids in fast target acquisition under stress. Also available with a self-illuminating Tritium dot on the post for precise shot placement in low-light conditions. M4/M16-Style Front - deep grooves in the sides of the housing to ensure a firm grasp for fast deployment.
