Blitzkrieg Components makes a pretty sweet replacement chevron front sight post for the AR-15, last year they released a night sight version. They just released their new Tritium Dot version. Their “Luminescent” night sight model needed to be charged by a light source before use, their new Tritium Dot version doesn’t need a charge and is good to go right away. They’re available now and retail for $67.95 at Blitzkriegcomponents.com. They also have them available with a front sight tool for $74.95.
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 Tritium Dot model provides a very effective low light capability with the bold, bright glowing chevron and a Tritium Dot at the top of the chevron The Tritium and Luminescent stripe are only visible on one side, 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 and the Tritium Dot adds a night capability for when the Luminescent Stripe has not been charged. 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 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.
Precision machined and threaded from one piece of billet 416 Stainless Steel to the tightest tolerances for an outstanding sight picture and precise fit in any AR-15 front sight housing. The matte black finish is a melonite finish for a super hard and corrosion resistant surface. The Luminescent Green Stripe appears more yellow in daylight and glows green in low light. It is a 5 layer paint application into a machined grove on one sight of the sight. this gives you a bright yellow contrast stripe in daylight and a bright green glowing chevron in low light and darkness. The Tritium Dot adds the advantage of a visible dot in total darkness when the Luminescent paint has not be able to absorb any light.
