Cons: Expense...
Would recommend: Yes

Sig 556 Front sight

by Legacy Reviewer, Written on July 21, 2012
This sight is perfect, flips up at the push of a button, looks great on my sig 556 classic swat, and folds down out of the way of my Aimpoint Pro.
Pros: Folding sight
Cons: none...
Would recommend: Yes

Sig 556 Flip up Sight

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, MA Written on January 14, 2012
This was a replacement for the solid iron site that came with my 556. The install was easy but the spring to flip up the sight is very tight, takes a two hand action. Must take awhile to loosen up.
Pros: Fits 556 models, Easy Install
Cons: Cost, Tight spring...
Would recommend: Yes

Samson HK style front sight a good choice for AR

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner Written on December 15, 2010
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...

Samson front sight for Sig 556 gas block dove tail

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, TX Written on November 15, 2010
Installed easily once the original sight was removed. It shot at least 6" low at 25 yd. using Samson front sight and Troy Ind. rear BUIS. Sight post bottomed out on sight. Called Samson and they sent me a different sight post(shorter threads) and plunger. On target at 100yd now.
Pros: Went on easy
Cons: Shot 6" low at 25yd, run out adjustment....
Would recommend: No

Great Quality Sight

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, CA Written on April 10, 2009
This piece is of very good quality and mounts solid however i'm still unsure why something that is essentially a machined part like any other is so expensive considering there are plenty of other more complex machined parts in the world that are no where near this much $
Pros: solid
Cons: price...
Would recommend: Yes

Nice front sight

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, GA Written on February 25, 2009
I have a S&W M&P15OR which doesn't include a front sight, but does have a small strip of rail for one. I wanted a backup iron sight and there aren't that many available for the front. Bought the Samson and couldn't be happier. Very easy to use and looks great.
Pros: Easy to install and use
Cons: A little pricey for such a small piece of metal...
Would recommend: Yes
