Ready When You Need Them, Fold Out Of The Way When You Don't
Flip up sights deploy instantly to keep you operational if the primary sight system on your flattop AR-15 fails or loses effectiveness in low light conditions. Push-button controlled, positive locking, ball-detent system snaps sights firmly into position when you need them and locks them down when you don’t. Folded sights allow a completely unobstructed view through optics and won’t snag on brush, clothing, or gear. Large, spring-loaded button is easy to find and operate, even under stressful conditions. Protective hood over front sight posts and ears around rear sight aperture guard against damage during rough handling. Rugged, machined steel and aluminum construction will stand up to years of hard use. Durable, matte black, mil-spec finishes resist corrosion.
Barrel Mount Front Sight - Solid, 4140 steel integral gas block/sight base clamps on .750" diameter barrel. Hex head crossbolts pull clamp halves tight to barrel to completely immobilize sight when properly tightened. Lightweight aluminum sight body comes with A2 sight post installed; also accepts aftermarket posts. Sight assembly folds to the rear when retracted.
The G2 Flip-up Barrel Mount Front Sight provides all the same features as listed above, but also has a thumb wheel designed to allow for easy front sight post elevation adjustments.
