Flip Up Front Sight For AR-10 Dovetailed Gas Blocks
Includes Mechanical Locking Detent
Most ArmaLite AR-10s that come with a dovetailed gas block don't include any front sight. The removable A-frame styles that are available are cumbersome to use, too easily misplaced, and distracting when optical sights are deployed. The GG&G Flip Up Front Sight For ArmaLite AR-10 Dovetailed Gas Blocks is easy to install, simple to deploy, weighs in at only 4.2 ounces and includes a mechanical locking detent system. It can easily be installed onto the dovetailed gas block with only an allen wrench, which is included. Once installed, this carbine flip sight can remain in place, as it can be raised or lowered instantly. Protective ears are provided for the sight with gripping serrations to more easily raise and lower the AR-10 front sight assembly in combat environments. With the mechanical locking detent, the front sight cannot be accidentally lowered, unlike other flip down front sights on the market. To lower the sight, the operator only has to push a button. When in the upright position, it provides the correct command height to match with a back-up iron sight, such as the GG&G MAD BUIS, mounted directly to the upper receiver. Of course it can be used to co-witness with red dot optics.
To insure flexibility, we use standard military sight components in this combat ready sight. The GG&G Flip Up Front Sight for ArmaLite AR-10 Dovetailed Gas Blocks is manufactured from solid 4140 billet chrome moly steel and is bead blasted and manganese phosphated to provide a non-reflective, corrosion resistant matte black finish meeting mil-spec requirements. All edges have been dehorned to protect the shooter.
As an option, a Trijicon Tritium Front Sight Post can be ordered with the sight.
