Blitzkrieg Components Releases New AR Front Sight Options

Blitzkrieg Components makes some pretty cool replacement front sights for the AR-15, including this Chevron Night Sight as well as this Tritium Dot version that they released last year which doesn’t require a light source to charge it. Blitzkrieg Components is now offering even more AR front sight options. One of their new options is a Chevron front sight post in bright orange with or without an option of a Tritium dot. Bright orange will also be available in a spike shaped sight post style for use with the Magpul MBUS PRO front sights.

Another new option from Blitzkrieg Components is a white stripe Chevron front sight also with the option of a Tritium dot or a spike shaped post. Both the orange and white paint options do not glow however, but Blitzkrieg Components does make a night sight style front sight in luminescent green that does glow in the dark. All of the new front sights from Blitzkrieg Components are made out of machined stainless steel with a black nitride finish. All the front sight options are compatible with any AR front sights that can use a standard style front sight post, installation is drop-in. The front sights for the Magpul MBUS PRO are also super easy to install. Check out for more info.

    These look like a great option if you don’t want to spend a couple hundred bucks on a red dot.

      Yes, or, if you are like me, you live in CA and are spending your money buying all of the ammo you can before the background checks go into effect.

        A shame yall didnt get enough signatures to recall those stupid laws…

        • Black Dots

          Thanks, I agree. We’re going to go for a state amendment next that will require the state to protect 2nd amendment rights. The petition collection method for a state amendment is much easier, so hopefully we will succeed this time.

    What if, in the course of zeroing your rifle the chevron isn’t facing you? did you just waste your money? because one more notch left or right will leave you with just a post outline again.
    The MBUS ones would work just fine.

    • Tom of Toms

      The Ashley Performance front sight post solves that problem simply, and is insanely bright and easy to pick-up.

        ?? does it work differently than what I can infer from the picture? because what I can infer is that it “might” face you correctly.

        • C77A1

          The blade is actually free to pivot on the “stem” of the sight; just adjust it to the correct elevation and depress the detent half way, then rotate the blade to face you!

        Seems like you could just pain your existing front sight on all sides if that is what you are going for. buy some white out or if you want to do it right buy some white paint and orange paint and layer it on.

    Been looking for something like this for a while. This is one of the most inexpensive things that can help improve shooting.

    I want to get one of these for my German friend.

    • Realist

      I presume that would be Herr 416?

    Put one of the tritium chevrons on my beater RRA. Love it. Does not allow for precise adjustments with elevation of course, but is a really awesome quick, highly visible, front-sight picture with a real sharp point. Keep the RRA nice and simple and light, and makes it fun to use irons again.

    And when you catch a flat, bam! Roadway safety device.
    Of course I could have went with –
    “Le Bâm!” or Don’t make me circumflex your @$$!
    My brilliance isn’t appreciated around here.
