Battlehook Sights are solving two issues with this genius idea. The front and rear sights each have a great function. I have fiber optic sights on my competition pistol. I break or lose my fiber optics sights often. The Battlehook Sight distributed by Henning Group will solve that problem. The front sight encloses the fiber optic tube inside its housing if you will. No more breaking or sliding out. But it is the rear sight function that is innovative in a tactical situation.
The rear sight unit is angled about
10 percent to allow for one-handed slide racking. Say your fingers on one hand get shot off (see Lone Survivor movie). How are you to rack the slide? Slide this sight off your pant pocket or heel of your show or any surface really and off you go. As well the Battlehook extends the blade over the back of the slide for a longer sight radius. I love this feature. The only problem for me is they only make these sights for Glocks at the moment. Which is great! But I don’t shoot a Glock. So I need to convince them to design one for my Tanfoglio and off I go. Either that or I just give in and by a Glock 35.
