Defiance Backup Sights From KRISS USA

    Any carbine setup with an optic for “business” use or defensive situations, should be outfitted with a pair of backup iron sights (BUIS). No matter how hardened your glass is or how long your battery life is purported to be, anything can happen and usually at the worst moments. KRISS USA has released the Defiance line of flip up sights to be used on rifles and carbines with standard top rails.

    An initial pass reveals the Defiance sight set looks on par with Magpul’s MBUIS line of flip up backup sights. We will have to wait for some real-world reviews to see if they perform well enough to consider purchasing them over a set from the polymer king.

    Pricing, information and specifications can be found below.
