Looks like today was rear sight day!
Not only did I get the Brownell's Tactical Flip-up rear sights member gshayd posted was on sale.
This came in from Optics Planet...
This is the UTG (Leapers) AR15 Super Slim fixed rear sights.
I know, your thinking don't they make some of that El-Cheapo stuff. Yes they do.
But they stepped up their game a few years ago with their Pro-Line of free float handguards.
This Super Slim line is part of their pro series.
These are actually made in Taiwan. Still legitimately "Made in China", but the "Capitalistic" part.
Fit and finish look good.
I did have to calibrate the elevation dial. It was two clicks off the 6/3 setting.
What is really nice is not having a knob sticking off the side to clamp on the sight. This uses a flush Torx screw.
The sight comes with a Torx wrench and extra screw.
Price point is quite nice. $32.89 at Optics Planet. I used coupon code 704tactical to get 5% off. With shipping total was $38.70.
704 Tactical did a video review on these. Even got a positive review on another AR site that will remain nameless.
Will be matching this UTG fixed rear sight with the Troy HK style fixed front sights I have.
Been wanting to get another fixed rear sight. I have a RRA Stand Alone fixed rear sight.
But they are about three times the cost of the UTG fixed rear sights. So if I like them as much as I think I will. I'll be getting a few more.
Here is the UTG rear sight next to the RRA.
The RRA is a tank, but I think the UTG will hold its own for what I need them for.
Another sight to get sighted in now. Think I'll put this set on my 18" BHW 6x45mm side charging AR.
Will let you know how things turn out with these.
