Midwest Industries Flip Up Front & Rear Sight Package Deal
Special Deal! Click to enlarge

Remember when you were a little kid and couldn’t wait to get up CHRISTmas morning because you knew all of those presents under the tree were for you?  Well the other day I was at work and got a shipping notification that my package from Midwest Industries had arrived at my house.  I had that same CHRISTmas morning feeling all over again.  I couldn’t wait to get out of work, drive way over the speed limit, rush to the front door and tear open my present.

In that box was my new Midwest Industries Flip Up Front and Rear Sights.  My rifle is a DPMS AR-15 Flattop, which means that there is no Carry Handle and no fixed Iron Sights on it.  Obviously if you don’t want to use a scope/red dot then you have to get some other type of sight set up.

These Midwest Industries sights are awesome.  They are completely made out of 6061 Aluminum and are hard coat anodized to give them a more durable finish.

The REAR Same Plane Low Profile sight (MCTAR-SPLP) stands less than a half inch high when folded and automatically locks in place when flipped up.  It has a dual aperture design and also has a Micro Windage Knob that is just the right size to stay out of the way but be still easy to adjust.

The FRONT Same Plane Low Profile sight (MI-LFFR) is the same size as the rear and uses a standard A2 front sight post.  It also automatically locks when flipped up.  The front sight is adjusted using a standard A2 front sight tool.  You can purchase one from Midwest Industries for just $7.50

The other day we had an unseasonably warm day so I decided to take them to the range.  As expected, these Midwest Industries sights worked flawlessly.  I especially liked how easy it was to use the Windage Adjustment Knob on the Rear Sight.  I am very happy with my sights and will definitely be getting more stuff from Midwest Industries.

Purchased separately, the set would cost $129.95 + shipping for the REAR and $99.95 + shipping for the FRONT which comes to $229.90 + shipping.  Right now they have a special package deal.  Click here to buy the FRONT and REAR set for $209.95 and get FREE Shipping! Definitely a killer deal to get a full set of Backup Sights for just $209.95.  Check out the pictures below for installation instructions and to see what they look like on my rifle.

Happy Holidays!  Merry CHRISTmas!
