Blackhawk Hybrid Fold Sights
The Blackhawk Hybrid Fold Sights showcase dual apertures which swing 180 degrees with an embedded rare earth magnet to hold the sight flat to the sight tower. This design lowers the risk of snags and switches instantly for close- and mid-range targets. The hybrid design includes a solid metal alloy core with an advanced copolymer jacket that lowers excess bulk while the steel A2 front sight post assists in ensuring accurate aim. Lastly, the windage and elevation dials are toolless for user-friendly operation.
Dueck Defense Rapid Transition Sights (RTS)

These sights were built for the rigor of competition or the abuse of law enforcement/military tactical scenarios. These offset sights enhance a shooter’s ability to quickly hit near and far targets. Made of 7075 aluminum alloy bar stock, these sights are durable and mount to your rifle’s top rail without interfering with a mounted optic.
GG&G 45 Degree Transition Sights
GG&G 45 Degree Transition Sights allow shooters to engage targets at close range quickly and efficiently. The front and rear combo set are offset at 45 degrees so all an operator does is cant the rifle or carbine to quickly get on target and continue firing.

Guntec AR-15 ‘Ez Sights’ Thin Profile Polymer Backup Iron Sight Set
The AR-15 ‘Ez Sights’ Thin Profile Polymer Backup Iron Sight Set from Guntec is made of a lightweight Zytel polymer composite that possesses steel internal construction. The low-profile design was made for rail height and fits any flattop receiver or Picatinny rail. These rapid-acquisition precision sights are quick to install, easily manipulated, and have a push-button lock to prevent folding down while in operation. Lastly, a dual rear aperture option is available.
The MBUS (Magpul Back-Up Sight) is an affordable, color-injection molded, folding back-up sight system that fits most 1913 Picatinny-railed hand guards, but is specifically designed for the AR-15/M16 platform. The MBUS’s detent and spring pressure design keeps the sight picture straight-on but allows for easy folding under pressure. The rugged, lightweight polymer construction withstands years of use and abuse. Both front and rear sights provide the same height-over-bore as standard A2 irons. The front sight is easily activated from either side or by pressing the top and the spring-locking A2 front sight post is protected by a wings shield. The spring-loaded flip-up rear sight is also easily activated from either side or by pressing the top section and its protective wings protect the dual, same-plane flip apertures.
Mission First Flip Up Front and Rear Sights
Mission First’s Flip-Up Front and Rear Sights are made of rugged polymer construction and were designed for mounting on the 1913 Picatinny rail. Both front and rear sights boast a low-profile and snag-resistant design for dependable and functional use. A shroud protects both the front post blade and rear aperture from dirt and debris along and from impact damage when not in use. Rail clamp nuts on both front and rear sights have been re-engineered to ensure no spin-out when over-tightened. Front and rear sights also offer a retaining pin for the cover to prevent the pin from falling out of position.
