Specifically designed to provide the correct sight height when mounted on a tactical forearm, the newly redesigned GG&G Spring Actuated Flip Up Front Sight for Tactical Forearms can also be installed on gas blocks that are at the same height as the upper receiver. Not only is it set for use on the AR15, but will co-witness when mounted to the tactical forearm of an AR-10. The sight stem of this version folds rearward. The dovetail front is easily installed and we even include the allen wrench for you to use.
Lighter and less expensive, it is manufactured from 6061 T-6 alumminum and is bead blasted and hard coat anodized to provide a non-reflective, corrosion resistant matte black finish, meeting mil-spec requrements. All edges have been dehorned for the operator's safety. Standard military sight components are used in this combat ready sight to ensure flexibility.
With just a push of the button, the sight no only springs into an on target position, but also locks solidly into the upright on target position. Another push of the button and the lock is released allowing you to set the sight into the locked down position. The possibility of accidentally lowering the sight during a tactical situation has totally been elminated with the actuator button. Located on the left side, it can easily be operated with the off hand, leaving the fire control hand in the proper position
