Strike Industries MP7 B.U.S.R Backup Sight Top Rail

mp7

New from Strike Industries comes a picatinny top rail with integrated backup iron sights for the H&K MP7. This must easily be the most niche product Strike have ever developed! The front post and rear aperture sights fold down into the rail to avoid obstructing the view of the ultra low profile micro-red dot optics often used with this Personal Defense Weapon. Factory H&K backup Iron Sights are the traditional popup style that sit on top of the rail (think Magpul BUIS) and require an optic large enough to clear the top of the BUIS.

Why would Strike develop such a niche product? An employee of the company told me it was developed for and at the request of a “special unit”. When pressed he would not say more.

The Strike MP7 Rail in Action

Despite their size, the sights are adjustable for both windage and elevation. The total weight of the rail and sights is actually less than the stock H&K rail they replace, decreasing the overall weight of the weapon. Judging by the size of the sights, you probably will not want to use them as your primary sight, they are true backup sights, to use when the primary optic fails.

If you are one of the new lucky folks in this country to have access to a MP7, this is one aftermarket accessory you should own. It is selling for $299. For the rest of us, we will just have to dream about owning an MP7.

    “Special unit could be a SWAT team as well. There are plenty of agencies with enough money to blow on MP7s that this could be literally anyone.

  • iksnilol

    I am afraid of literally snapping them off by accident.

  • Nicholas Chen

    Hmm. I wonder if this could be modified for the Keltec CMR30?

    • Anonymoose

      Not likely. The CMR30 takes some design cues from the MP7, but nothing could possibly interchange.

      • Nicholas Chen

        I think you missed the key word “modified”. Depending on the dimensions of this rail, and how the underside is machined, it could be machined to fit onto the CMR30. Worst case I could duct tape or JB weld it on. LOL Not practical but it would fit.

        • Anonymoose

          This screws into the to the receiver of the MP7. The CMR has its rails molded into the plastic, as far as I can tell.

          • Nicholas Chen

            Nope. It is machined aluminum screwed into an extruded aluminum receiver. The only plastic is the polymer pistol grip frame.

          • Anonymoose

            Thanks for the clarification!

          • Lawbob

            Cmr is alum

  • Evan

    If I could get an MP7, I might be interested in this. Until then…

  • Frank C

    I think it’s for LEO special units. I saw couple of them already.

  • CommonSense23

    Not sure if the author of this is trying to insinute that the west coast seal teams use this weapon with that link to Naval Amphibious base but they definitely do not use the MP7.

    • Of course they can pretty much use whatever they want to. Sometimes the contract restricts the company from saying who the end user is.

      • CommonSense23

        No, no they can not. It would be nice when people stop assuming the the Special Operations community can just get there hands on anything they want. Even the SMUs have limitations. The west coast teams are definitely not using the MP7.

        • sgt fish

          as of when? because it was confirmed that DEVGRU/ST6/whatever was using them when matt bissonette posted pics of all his gear on a forum. showing all the weapons he uses and his primary favorite was an MP7

          • CommonSense23

            Damneck is not on the west coast. Damneck has far better equiment and gear than the regular seal teams.

  • BattleshipGrey

    For once I’m glad something has an absurd price tag. Probably something to do with MP7s only being available to LE or Military.

    I don’t see what the big deal is about letting the public know which “unit” this was developed for. It’s being bought with tax money anyway, so it shouldn’t be secret. It’s probably for the LE division of the Department of Education, that’s why they don’t want us to know.

  • Bal256

    Keltec seriously needs to make a cmr30 in 9mm

    • Anonymoose

      With a short (6″-8″) barrel.

      • Ben

        Ooh, I like this idea.

    • Nicholas Chen

      They do. It is called the Sub-2000

  • I’m just happy to see a product that’s not AR related.

    • JumpIf NotZero

      Sure, I hate when things are practical too?

    • Andrew

      Then you’ll love Strike Industries’ new M72 LAW muzzle brakes.

      • Strike makes some great products. The company is very well regarded around TFB.

        • Zachary marrs

          When you release a product for a gun that all of 12 people can own, and show it off on a popular blog, snarky comments should be expected.

  • JumpIf NotZero

    Awesome. I’m sure they’ll sell all 8 of them.

    • lawbob

      Well they dedicated an entire post to a gun that none of us non-FFLs can possibly own…

      • Because it is an interesting gun. I know I really like the way Strike built in the sights on these rails as well as those made for the AR.

      • HenryV

        Welcome to the life of a Brit………. 🙂

  • MR

    Sounds like Strike Industries picked up Red Jacket’s old contracts.

    “This is one aftermarket accessory you should own”

    The MP7’s aftermarket is so small this is really the only aftermarket accessory you can own at all

    • Ben

      Rekt

  • iksnilol

    I don’t see the attraction of the MP7, the PP2000 weighs pretty much the same while using good old fashioned 9mm.

    • Jwedel1231

      The draw of the MP7 (besides the cool-guy factor) is the 4.6x30mm cartridge.

      • iksnilol

        A cartridge only two companies make? A cartridge that is basically an even more obscure weaker (and rare) version of 5.7×28?

        Yeah, I don’t see the attraction.

        • Jwedel1231

          Yeah, I don’t get it either.
