Blitzkrieg Components Chevron Night Sight

Blitzkrieg-Components-Chevron-Night-Sight

Blitzkrieg Components recently released their new Luminescent Green Stripe AR-15 Chevron Front Sight Post. You can install it in most front sights that will accept Mil-Spec front sight post and Blitzkrieg Components even throws in a handy front sight tool, they don’t fit the new Magpul MBUS Pro or the LWRC Skirmish sights however. Check out the video below to see just how easy it is to install. The chevron sight looks yellow in the day time but glows a bright green in the dark. They retail for $44.95 over at Blitzkriegcomponents.com

The Blitzkrieg Components AR-15 Chevron Front Sight Post (Patented) provides the ultimate iron sight picture with both a perfectly sharp aiming point and a bold, fast sight picture. The Luminescent Green model provides a very effective low light capability with the bold, bright glowing chevron. Only one side of the sight is painted, so there is no glow toward the enemy. The Chevron gives the perfect blend of speed and precision. The Chevron design has many unique advantages. The tip of the chevron gives the shooter a sharp aiming point for precise aiming and high confidence on difficult shots, while the bold chevron shape is easy to see and pick up quickly without obscuring the target. The contrasting Luminescent Chevron Stripe gives the shooter an eye catching sight picture that excels in both bright-light and low-light environments. Minimum adjustment for elevation is 4 clicks or one full rotation since the Luminescent Stripe is visible on one side so that no luminescence glows toward the enemy. The opposite side can still be used as a black chevron if desired. The Chevron Shape makes for an improved sight picture with any type of protective wings, whether using standard wings, semi-hooded HK/Troy style, fully hooded, Magpul MBUS or diamond shaped. This sight post improves the sight picture of all of those designs. It also works great when co-witnessing sights and optics.

Glow Characteristics: The Luminescent (Glow) Chevron Stripe glows very bright when charged and the glow brightness dissipates gradually in darkness. The brighter and longer the light charge is, the brighter and longer the glow will be. Sunlight and Tactical LED flashlights give the best charge. Will glow well after just a few seconds of charge, but will glow longer with a longer charge. Typically, in total darkness after being charged you can expect it to glow very bright for 5 minutes, bright for 20-30 minutes and at a lower level for several hours. This works very well to have a very bright glow when transitioning from daylight to a dark room and as your eyes adjust to lower light levels, the lower level glow will still appear bright and very easy to pick up.

    The NCO chevron bight sights costs upwards of $159.99 and makes you drop and give it 20 for every time you jerk the trigger.

      Roflmao. Start pushing boots.

    So. How the heck are you going to zero this if it’s only 4 clicks per?

  • Fred Johnson

    I like everything about it except the fact it’s not some sort of tritium. I don’t know about the rest of you, but when I try the “charge ‘n glow” sights that came on one of my CZ handguns, I can’t make it through my 2400 sq. ft. house at night without them fading away.

    How much time do need to charge that front sight with a flashlight before you go “clearing” your home to check for “invaders”. 5 minutes?

    • Don Ward

      Tactical flashlight mounted to charge sight. Duh! What kind of Operator are you?

      • Grindstone50k

        Do you even operate?

        • Don Ward

          I ams Tier O Operatetier! The O stands fer Operate! The Tier stands fer Tier!

      • Fred Johnson

        Not a very real one, that’s for sure! 😀

  • SD3

    MSRP? Only $700 (shipping not included). What a deal!

    It seems to use a special adjustment tool and can’t be adjusted with a standard A2 sight tool. If so, no thanks. It’s a nice concept, but I value tool compatibility.

  • iksnilol

    I like chevron sights but this one doesn’t seem that good, not much adjustment available and it doesn’t use tritium or fiberoptics

    Off topic: is there any tritium or fiberoptic front post for Tech-Sights?
