Troy industries has the best name in the business for Back-Up Iron Sights (BUIS). This is because they make some of the highest quality, best performing sights on the market.
This Troy tritium front BattleSights is designed to give you more advanced capabilities that traditional sights. This front sight has a vial of tritium insert into the front sight post. Tritium is a self-luminous material, meaning that it is able to makes it’s own lite. Tritium is a radioactive substance that glows in the dark. It does not need to be powered by an external battery nor does it need to be “charged” by light prior to use. Whatever the conditions are, it will provide you with a glowing aiming reference point in low light conditions. This makes for an extremely reliable front sight that can be used in low light situations.
Due to their durability and dependability, the Troy BattleSights are used by Special Ops and Tactical operators around this world. This front sight is easy to deploy and folds away to a compact package when not in use. The sight is held in place by a positive locking detent that will resist recoil during firing. To fold the sight you only need to push the button on the side of the sight and then simply fold the sight down. To deploy the sight, you need only grab it and pull it up until you hear and feel the detent lock into place.
This sight is designed to be mounted onto a MIL-STD-1913 rail. It can be mounted and removed for your rifle without any permanent modification.
The sight is machined from hardened aircraft grade aluminum. For enhanced corrosion resistance, the aluminum is finished in a mil-spec hard coat anodizing.
