The guys over at Blitzkrieg Components have incorporated a Chevron into the AR-15 front sight post giving you a totally different sight picture than you are used to when using iron sights which may come as a welcome change. This is the first time I’ve seen anything like this but I can’t figure out why as its a pretty cool idea. I personally like the Chevron style reticle that is used quite often in the ACOG, BCO and other optics and I’m not much of a fan of the standard little black A2 front sight post. The Blitzkrieg Components AR-15 Chevron Front Sight Post is definitely much different than an A2 FSP and is available in standard black or black with a super high contrast white stripe and will work with any front sight that uses a mil-spec front sight post such as Troy, Magpul, Midwest Industries, YHM and many others. These are CNC Machined and then coated with GunKote so you know you’re getting a high quality piece. Like I said, this is the first I’ve seen and have never used anything with this setup but it seems like something I would like to give a try. Check out the pics and details below.
The Blitzkrieg Components AR-15 Chevron Front Sight Post (Patent Pending) provides the ultimate iron sight picture with both a perfectly sharp aiming point and a bold, fast, easy to see sight picture. The perfect blend of speed and precision. The Chevron design has many unique advantages. The tip of the chevron gives the shooter a perfectly sharp aiming point for precise aiming and high confidence on difficult shots. The bold chevron shape is easy to see and pick up quickly without obscuring the target. The internal triangle shaped cutout minimizes how much of the target is covered by the sight and provides a very useful range estimating capability. For example, the shooter can determine at what range a known sized target fits into the window and can then learn to rapidly estimate range to target based on that known factor. The exact calculations vary based on sight radius of the rifle. The White Chevron Stripe gives the shooter an eye catching sight picture that excells in both bright-light and low-light environments. Minimum adjustment for elevation is two clicks since the chevron and stripe are visible on two sides. This provides for precise sighting adjustment that is superior to single sided sight designs. The Chevron Shape makes for an improved sight picture with any type of protective wings, whether standard wings, semi-hooded HK/Troy style, fully hooded, or diamond shaped. This sight post improves the sight picture of all of those designs.
This sight post is made to the highest standards possible. It is precision turned, milled, EDM machined and threaded from 4000 series steel to the tightest tolerances for an outstanding sight picture and precise fit in any quality AR-15 front sight housing. And unlike most sights with a cheap, black oxide finish which offers little corrosion resistance, this sight has an excellent flat black, tough, corrosion resistant KG GunKote finish. It is made to be the best possible front sight post, so it is not cheap to make, but you get what you pay for. For those who use their iron sights and want the best, this is it.
