Pros:  gives good sight picture, solid build quality
Cons:  release button not lefty friendly, requires significant pressure on release button to deploy sight (but this may be necessary to avoid inadvertant deployment)
Would recommend:  yes

Product was in stock and was shipped promptly at the agreed on price and with free shipping. It arrived undamaged and in a timely manner. The HK-style semicircular protective wings flanking the sight post seem to aid in rapid centering of the front sight within the standard rear peep sight (as the eye seems to naturally want to center a circle within a circle). This may be less helpful if for some reason you have to adjust the front sight post very far up or down (so that it is no longer in the center of the circle formed by the wings). In order to prevent damage to the fastener used to clamp the sight on to a Picatinny rail, some people might prefer to have a Torx or Allen headed fastener rather than the slotted fastener provided, but the use of a properly sized screwdriver should get sufficient torque without damaging the head of the fastener (thread locking compound can always be used to make certain the fastener doesn't loosen under extreme conditions and long periods of time). The release button is larger than that on some of the competing products, which makes it easier to find and use in a hurry. The release button is located on the left side of the sight which works well for having your left hand on the fore end as the majority of shooters will. It would take slightly longer for someone shooting left handed to get at the release button. Inadvertant deployment of the sight is unlikely as it requires significant pressure to depress the release button and allow the sight to deploy (approx 15 lbs). The pressure required does not seem to lessen with lubrication and use. Some may feel the pressure required is excessive, but without it, the sight might inadvertantly deploy under recoil forces. I did have to contact Samson about a problem with one of their rear sights. They were courteous and replaced the product promptly. Bottom line: If you are looking for a front sight that is spring-loaded to deploy when released and locks in the deployed position, this product is a good choice from a good vendor and manufacturer that gives a good sight picture. The price is competative with similar products.
