All of the Blitzkrieg Components AR style sight posts are compatible with any front sight that accepts a standard front sight post. Installation is a simple drop-in process and models are available with a custom stainless steel sight tool if desired. The models for the Magpul® MBUS PRO® install in seconds with no tools and provide some great new options for those popular sights. All of the Blitzkrieg Components sight posts are machined from stainless steel with a tough black nitride finish. The contrasting paint stripes are applied into a machined groove using the most durable compounds for long service life. For more information visit their website at www.blitzkriegcomponents.com.

Blitzkrieg Components is offering FREE SHIPPING on their complete line of AR-15 front sight posts during the month of June. Blitzkrieg Components offers a huge variety of different front sight post options for sights that take standard AR-15 FSP’s as well as the super popular Magpul MBUS PRO that will make a night and day difference in target acquisition speed. For the standard FSP you can choose from Black Chevron | White Stripe Chevron | Luminescent Green Stripe Chevron | Luminescent Green/Tritium Chevron | Luminescent Green Stripe Spike and Tritium Spike. For the MBUS PRO you have the option of a Luminescent Green Stripe Spike or a Tritium Spike.

What started out as a single Chevron shaped front sight post upgrade has evolved into an entire line of front sight post replacements from Blitzkrieg Components. Their latest new model to introduce is the Luminescent Spike Front Sight Post for standard AR-15 front sights. If your front sight takes a standard A2 style sight post you can upgrade it with this new post. This front sight post has a sharp spike at the top for precise aiming and has a luminescent green stripe on the back side that glows in the dark. The front side facing the target does not glow in the dark.

This replaces standard A2 style sight posts in any typical AR-15 type fixed or folding sight. The Blitzkrieg Components AR-15 Spike Front Sight Post for AR-15 sights provides superior sighting with a sharp aiming point and a bold, fast sight picture. The sharp aiming point enables precise aiming and high confidence on difficult shots. The bold, contrasting Luminescent Green Stripe gives the shooter an eye catching sight picture that excels in both bright-light and low-light environments and against all types of backgrounds. It is very fast and very easy to see. Minimum adjustment for elevation is 4 clicks or one full rotation since the Luminescent Stripe is visible on one side so that no luminescence glows toward the enemy. This means that when zeroing your sight for elevation, you will be at least within 2 clicks or 2.5 MOA of a perfect zero and normally closer than that or even dead-on. It will be either exactly on point of aim or no more than 2.5 MOA high or low (2.5″ at 100 yards, 1.25″ at 50 yards). This will vary depending on sight radius.

Our sight posts are precision machined from billet 416 Stainless Steel for an outstanding sight picture and precise fit in any AR-15 front sight housing including standard A2 fixed front sights and popular brands like Troy, Diamondhead, Samson, MI, YHM, Daniel Defense and Magpul plastic MBUS Gen 2. Fits anything that accepts a standard A2 front sight post. Has a matte black melonite finish which is very durable and very corrosion resistant. The Luminescent Green Stripe appears more yellow in daylight and glows green in low light. It is a 5 layer paint application into a machined grove. This gives you a bright yellow contrast stripe in daylight and a bright green glowing stripe in low light and darkness. Simple Drop-In installation. Simply unscrew the factory sight post and screw in the Blitzkrieg Components sight post using either our sight tool or a standard A2 sight tool.

Glow Characteristics: The Luminescent (Glow) Stripe glows very bright when charged and the glow brightness dissipates gradually in darkness. The brighter and longer the light charge is, the brighter and longer the glow will be. Sunlight and Tactical LED flashlights give the best charge, but any type of lighting will work. It will glow very bright after just a few seconds of charge, and will glow longer with a bit longer charge. Typically, in total darkness after being charged you can expect it to glow very bright for 5 minutes, brighter than tritium for 30 minutes and at a lower level for a few 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. Additionally, the bright glow makes the sight dramatically easier to pick up against dark targets and background clutter where black sight posts get completely lost.

Blitzkrieg Components Chevron Front Sight Post

Blitzkrieg Components just released the first photos of their new Magpul MBUS PRO Spike Shaped Front Sight Post. For the past few years they have been making the awesome Chevron Front Sight Post for most mil spec front sights but as soon as Magpul released their MBUS PRO all you heard was “What are you gonna make for the MBUS PRO?”. The MBUS PRO does not take a mil spec front sight post so Blitzkrieg Components had to do a complete ground up redesign. What they came up with looks pretty awesome to me. Its basically a Spike with a very sharp point like the top of a Chevron but it also features a luminescent strip that is very bright and high contrast during the day but also glows bright at night like their luminescent Chevron sight.

NEW Blitzkrieg Spike shaped sight post for the Magpul MBUS Pro sights. First model has a Luminescent Green stripe which is bright day or night.

Will be available Sept 2015.

Looks like this is just the first of many models of Blitzkrieg Components front sight posts for the Magpul MBUS PRO. According to BC the MBUS PRO Luminescent Spike front sight post will not be available until September 2015 which is fine by me. That is my birthday month after all. Looking forward to picking up a few of these to outfit my MBUS PRO obsession….collection.

Blitzkrieg Components recently introduced a new version of their Chevron front sight. It basically took their popular Luminescent (glow in the dark) Chevron to a new level by adding a Trijicon Tritium Dot near the tip of it. This ensures that even if your Chevron itself has stopped glowing the Tritium Dot can be seen making it a true Night Sight that will replace any mil spec front sight post. Rainier Arms just got their first shipment of Chevron Night Sights with Adjustment Tools and is offering them at an introductory price of $64.95 vs the normal retail of $74.95.

Many of you are probably familiar with the Blitzkrieg Components Chevron front sight posts which replace your standard AR-15 front sight post. They are a great upgrade that brings a high contrast, sharp aiming point to your sight picture. For a while now, a lot of people have been asking for a night sight version. Blitzkrieg Components listened and not that long ago started offering their new “Luminescent” model which you can charge with a bright flashlight, etc. As you can imagine, there were still consumers who wanted something that didn’t require a charge, so Blitzkrieg Components has added an additional model which now features a Tritium Dot right in the tip of the Luminescent Chevron giving you the best of both worlds. Check out the pics below. The first one shows a side by side I did of a couple of my uppers and the difference the standard Chevron makes. A photo of the new Tritium model is below.

You might remember that a few weeks ago we broke the news of the new Chevron Night Sight from Blitzkrieg Components. People have been asking for a night sight version for a while and these look pretty sweet. My buddy Nate of NSZ85 got his hands on one and decided to do a nice video of his review and installation. If you’re interested, take a few minutes and watch the video below. I would strongly recommend following NSZ85’s YouTube channel as well for more awesome videos.

The new Blitzkrieg Components Chevron Night Sight is available for purchase now at BlitzkriegComponents.com.

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.”

Blitzkrieg Components is primarily best known for their awesome mil spec replacement Chevron front sight posts. Recently they surprised everyone with their new 9mm AR-15 AKTIVE Buffer. The new AKTIVE buffer is designed to cushion the impact between the rear of the Bolt Carrier and the front of the Buffer, dampen the impact at the rear of the Buffer Tube and it also forces the 9mm Bolt Carrier to line up concentric to the inside of the Buffer Tube. All of these things combined reduce felt recoil, helps keep your sights on target for faster followup shots and reduces wear on the firearm. It also makes shooting your 9mm more enjoyable as it will run smoother and quieter. I don’t personally have a 9mm AR…yet…but as soon as I do I will be picking one of these up. Check out the details below. Awesome pics courtesy of Jody Lewis. 

Blitzkrieg 9mm AR Buffer 1

Blitzkrieg Components partnered with CTS Engineering to develop a 9mm AR-15 buffer using CTS’s Patent Pending AKTIVE Buffer Technology. The AKTIVE Buffer design uses a solid Stainless Steel buffer body and a 2-stage buffering action to cushion the impact of the Bolt/Bolt Carrier. The buffer has a hard polymer piston head at the front that encloses a captured elastomer shock absorber and has an improved rear bumper. The 2-stage action consists of the piston head compressing the internal elastomer shock absorber, followed by the compression of the rear bumper, creating a much softer impact at the rear of the buffer tube.

Blitzkrieg 9mm AR Buffer 1

The impact of the bolt on the barrel as it goes forward into battery is also less than with a conventional weighted buffer or solid buffer. The hard polymer piston head has been redesigned to support the unique 9mm AR-15 application. It accommodates the solid rear profile of 9mm AR-15 bolts and it provides optimal alignment at all times within the buffer tube. Furthermore, the polymer piston head eliminates buffer tube wear and runs completely quiet. The rear bumper is not only more substantial than a convention bumper, but it is secured to the stainless buffer body with a bolt instead of a flimsy roll pin. The blowback operation of the 9mm AR-15 drives a very heavy bolt (normally16 ounces) much harder than a standard AR-15 BCG and it needs to be dampened as much as possible to optimize the system, reduce wear on the firearm and reduce recoil and sight movement.

Blitzkrieg 9mm AR Buffer 1

Blitzkrieg 9mm AR Buffer 1

The design is simple, yet very effective and will feel softer and run quieter than any conventional AR buffer. Spring noise is also eliminated using this buffer. Most spring noise on 9mm AR15s comes from the abrupt stop of a conventional buffer causing spring vibration. Our buffer dampens the impact for a soft landing which completely eliminates this vibration and noise. The length of this buffer stops the bolt just behind the bolt catch on a 9mm AR-15 without the need for a spacer. We recommend pairing this buffer with our 9mm AR-15 carbine buffer spring or a high quality .308 AR-10 carbine spring to sufficiently slow the rearward bolt velocity. Our high performance buffer springs are available separately as well as in buffer/spring combinations for the ultimate in strength, consistency and extremely long service life.

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.
