Bobro Engineering just introduced a great looking set of low profile “Lowrider Sights” on their Facebook page yesterday. This is about as low profile as it gets while still maintaining the normal functions of a set of backup sights such as windage and elevation adjustments, etc. not to mention these sights have secondary locks to ensure once you sight them in nothing moves after you zero the weapon. Check out the pics and details of this very cool set of sights below. Looks like first production run will be done after SHOT Show which is later this month.
Bobro Lowrider Sights (Patent Pending). We designed a set of sights that are truly low profile.
1-Low as possible
3-Locks on opening
4-Fits under optics/mounts
We designed a side pivot mechanism for strength and the lowest possible profile that will remain durable. The side pivot has internal detents, and we also incorporated a drive pin lock system. You must depress a button to fold them back down.
These next two photos really show just how low profile they are.
