Phoenix Technology of Burgaw, NC has introduced a new product called “On Point Sight – AK47”. This accessory mounts on front sight block of AK-style rifles and adds two green dots from either side of the front sight post.
It is a drop-in accessory meaning no modifications are needed to be done on the rifle in order to attach it. It is designed to increase the front sight visibility and aid its quick acquisition at daytime, as well as in low light conditions.
They use two .040″ diameter green fiber optic rods. The product itself is made of black color glass filled Nylon and weighs 11.5 grams, which is about 0.4 oz.
The On Point Sight is made in USA and available on Phoenix Technology’s website at $34.99.
As of now, there is another AK fiber optic front sight solution available on the market. It is the HIVIZ front sight, which is actually a replacement front sight post. What differentiates Phoenix Technology On Point Sight from the competition is that it doesn’t replace anything, but adds to the existing front sight.
I think it would be useful if this front sight enhancement device was possible to fold forward, thus making quick disengagement possible. A similar solution was in Yugoslavian AK-47 night sights.
