Need some back up iron sights


Recommended Posts

I'm looking for a slightly used set of back up irons for my 308 AR.  I'd like a set of fixed sights but flip ups are okay too.  American made.  Aluminum is preferable.  I need the kind that goes on the rail and not a railed gas block.  Price needs to be right.  Message me if you've got something.  Thanks.

If you're looking for QUALITY sights... I have set of Troy tritium Dioptic micro battle sights.

I bought these directly from Troy when they first came out. They cost a fortune back then.

I might be able to cut you a deal.



For the money can't go wrong with a set from Magpul brotherl.Just sayin.


Oooo!!  Devil Robo  >:D  on one shoulder and…and…and, well there's no angle for unforgiven and the devil is taken, so he's on the other shoulder  :banana:  .


Both ends of the spectrum, insanely expensive backup sights or rugged and affordable functional backup sights.

Magpul sights are great sights. If you're running backup sights, I can't say there's any one better.

For primary sights, they're a little slower to get a good sight picture.

The Di-Optic sights take some getting used to. They are stooooopid fast once you get the hang of it. I was going to put mine on a patrol rifle if I ever got around to it. They are excellent "my life depends on it" sights. I think the only faster sights would be the HK416 barrel sight.
