The GG&G Spring Actuated Flip Up Front Sight for DoveTails deploys quickly with just the push of a button, getting you on target easily and rapidly. This GG&G Flip Sight has all the same benefits as the popular GG&G BUIS series, with a unique and proprietary mechanism that allows the actuator spring and mechanical components to be captivated and therefore not be open to the environment. The GG&G Dovetail Flip Up Sight locks solidly into the upright on-target position when deployed. A second push of the button and the lock is released, so you can fold the sight into the locked-down position. The iron sight cannot be folded down without depressing the actuator button located on the left side of the sight base. This totally eliminates the possibility of accidentally lowering the sight. With the actuator button located on the left side it can be easily operated with the off hand, leaving the fire control hand in the proper position. The GG&G DoveTail Flip Sight is made to mount on dovetailed gas blocks, which provides the same command height as the original AR15/M16 front sight. The sight stem folds forward so as to clear tactical forearms that would otherwise interfere with it folding rearward, and can be co-witnessed with red dot optics.
Installation of the GG&G 1281 Spring Folding Sight for Dove Tails is easy and requires only the included Allen wrench. The sight uses only standard military sight components - these GG&G Tactical sights are combat-ready out of the box. The GG&G Spring Actuated Flip Up Front Sight is manufactured from 6061 T-6 aluminum and bead blasted and Type III hard anodized to provide a combat ready non-reflective, corrosion resistant matte black finish meeting mil-spec requirements. All edges have been dehorned for the operator's safety.
An optional Trijicon tritium front sight post can also be added to enhance low light shooting capability. The tritium front sight option is the perfect accessory for police and tactical users who may be moving in and out of darkness in real time.
