Quite a while ago I introduced you guys to the Blitzkrieg Components Chevron front sight post. Its a drop-in replacement for your standard front sight post that gives you a really sharp “Chevron” aiming point and a bright white stripe to makes for quick target acquisition in pretty much any lighting condition…that is except for in the dark. Seems like every day someone would post on their Facebook page that they wish there was a night sight option. Blitzkrieg Components listened and accepted the challenge. The new Luminescent Chevron Night Sight is officially available for purchase and looks to be another winner from Blitzkrieg Components.
The Night Sight version appears Yellow in the day light and is easily installed in pretty much any front sight that accepts mil spec sight posts. Shown below is the new Luminescent Chevron Night Sight and what it looks like installed in a Magpul MBUS sight.
Turn the lights out and the Yellow strip now shines a nice Green color. The sight luminescent strip can be charged with most any light but Sun Light or a bright Flashlight work best.
“Typically, in total darkness after being charged you can expect it to glow very bright for 5 minutes, bright for 20-30 minutes and at a lower level for several hours. This works very well to have a very bright glow when transitioning from daylight to a dark room and as your eyes adjust to lower light levels, the lower level glow will still appear bright and very easy to pick up.”
The new Luminescent Chevron Front Sight Post is available right now at BlitzkriegComponents.com for just $44.95. Be sure to snag some before they’re all gone. They also have their standard White Stripe and Solid Black Chevron sights as well if you don’t need the night sight option or want to save a few bucks.
