[SHOT 2022] New Rifle And Pistol Products From XS Sights
XS Sights has expanded their lineup of night sights, armorer’s tools, and lever action scope mounts for 2022. The “Armorers Block for AR Platforms Gen 2” adds several improvements to the original armorer’s block. It works with both AR-15 and AR-10 upper and lower receivers, allowing them to be secured to a vise without damage. XS states that their block works with many varieties of .308 ARs, including AR-10, SR-25 and DMPS GII patterns. Pins to secure uppers to the block are included, along with a fitting screw for the AR-15 lower. The block is made from 6061 T-6 aluminum, and retails for $83.The black spacer is not included with the block and is required for compatibility with AR-10 lowers. It can be purchased for $5, or, if you have access to a 3-D printer, it can be printed from a free .STL file downloadable from their website.
XS has not forgotten the lever gunners. Their Lever Rail Optics Mount is now available for Henry 45-70 rifles with steel frames and round barrels. The Optics Mount secures with screws in the top of the receiver, as well as a nut and screw in the rear sight dovetail. Users who want iron sights as well as an optic can use the ghost right sight kits sold by XS. The Optics Mount retails for $72, and the ghost ring sights cost $110.XS has also continued to expand their lineup of night sights with two new R3D options. They are now available for the CZ P-10 Optics Ready, and a suppressor height option is available for the Glock 42/43/43X/48 family. Both are available with orange or green front sight outlines to suit user preference. Both models cost $116. The armorer’s block, Henry scope rail, and R3D night sights are all available now directly from XS Sights and select retailers.
