XS Sights Releases C.S.A.T. Sight Upgrade for Troy Flip-Up Battle Sights

XSSights has announced the release of the C.S.A.T. iron sight upgrades (notched rear and tritium front) for Troy Industries’ venerable Battle Sights. The C.S.A.T. is designed by former Army MSgt. Paul Howe to allow the user to quickly switch from 7 to 100 yards using the same sight.

The complete sight set (front and rear) with CSAT’s pre-installed will run at MSRP $310.00. You can purchase the inserts for existing sights at $100 and $40, front and rear, respectively.

For those that need a run-down of the philosophy and use of the CSAT’s, you can see it directly from Paul Howe himself:

    I have a set of these inserts on my pig ‘wulf. Just be aware the front post is wide. That’s fine for my .50, but I don’t like it for distance. And for you other old guys out there, the notch isn’t easily picked up if you’re getting farsighted. I also think the aperture/notch is a little narrow for really fast close work, esp. given the wide front.

    • You mean at the point where it makes a Y on the front sight it’s a half inch wide? If so that is rather above the norm.

      • DrewN

        The front post (at least the insert I have) is wide enough to obscure a good bit of the target at over 100 meters or so. Like I said not really an issue with .50 Beowulf and it’s generous trajectory, but this is pretty exclusively a close in sight system. IMO, you could narrow the front post quite a bit and still pick it up easily with the tritium.

  • BMAN

    Yo dawg, we heard you like iron sights, so we put iron sights on your iron sights, so you can sight while you sight.

    Meh… mbus pro is way more compact

  • BOB

    SO TACTICAL!!! what with the 1 inch drop between the 2 ranges in real life, this will make the difference when I go from shooting the badguy knocking down my front door to shooting the sniper operative holding my daughter hostage at 100 yds!

  • David

    I have tried the cast sights and with the rear sight so close to my eye the notch was so blurred that it was invisible. Isn’t the rear sight supposed to be nothing but a blur ?? What am I missing?

  • ArcRoyale

    How many sights do you really need, you can only aim at one thing at a time.

    • gunslinger

      true,but what if something happens to them?

  • Squirreltactical

    So tactical.

    • gunslinger

    In a million years and even if offered for free, I will never buy a Troy product again.

      Could you Elaborate, please?
      I’m in the market for some Tritium flip up sights, I thought Troy was the best?

      • Y-man

        Major issues with Troy and some 2nd amendment enemies as well as some other “person” they employed. “Firearms, NOT Politics” but even I in Nigeria not sure I want to buy Troy! Google it.

        • Drapetomanius

          Indeed. Show me who you walk with, and I’ll tell you who you are. Troy walked with some real pariahs.
