Great sights

by Hurricane, from United States, FL Written on March 15, 2015
These sights are super heavy duty sights and always keep zero not like the other brands that they make so cheap and cannot keep zero when training. These sights are worth the money and time so don't waste your time buying cheapo sights....
Pros:
  • Heavy duty, good quality
Cons:
  • zero cons

Troy Rear Folding Battle Sight

by MBro, from United States, TX Written on March 14, 2015
Troy Folding Sights are built like a tank! Since this is installed on a work rifle that rides in a vertical mount, it's easy to bang metal clipboards and other potentially-damaging equipment into these things while it's inside the vehicle. Likewise, when my patrol rifle is out of the vehicle and actually being used for its intended purpose, the rifle and its various mounted components are subjected to lots of abuse. Although the optic that sits above this folding sight looks worse than the Troy Folding Rear Sight, the sight has also managed to take on a "broken in" appearance.

I keep it in the "folded" position and just use it as a backup to supplement my optic, but it still lives a pretty rough life. The coating has scraped off of it in several places, and I noticed a small dent in the metal when I was at the range last week. I'm not sure exactly when I hit the sight against something hard enough to gouge the metal, but it didn't seem to affect the integrity of the sight. I removed the optic, did a quick 100 yard check with only the folding sights, and it was still spot on!

Troy, you've got a winner with these!...

lots of other options but none are as proven

by Dave, from United States, OH Written on March 11, 2015
What can I say? You can't go wrong with this sight. You can find lower profile sights, but you won't find one build add well as this. Very easy to adjust easy to install. Lyrics planet delivered fast and free. Can't beet that. I've tried the dioptic version of this, and recommend this one over that....
Pros:
  • Built like a tank
  • locks when deployed
Cons:
  • None
Would recommend: Yes

Quality sight

by Kevin, from United States, TX Written on March 4, 2015
I'm using this sight on a Colt, it is solid, has a good sight picture and will co-witness with my optic. The sight folds and locks positively, the adjustments are positive and secure, no wobble that I can detect. I suppose the best thing I can say about it is that I will buy another. My military days are long since past so I don't beat the tar out of things like I used to but I expect this sight would have done the job. It is perfect for a range, ranch gun that spends time bouncing around in a dusty truck. Good kit near as I can see....

Overpriced, non-spec

by Ruger66, from United States, TX Written on January 12, 2015
The rear aperture was nearly out of adjustment all the way on the left hand side. I have had Yankee Hill BUIS on the same gun with no problems. The other thing is the rear aperture is not mil-spec. I have a set of Trijicon night sights I was going to install on these..... The front went in fine, the rear however is a different size. Overall construction seems tough and well made but for the money I expect more. I think Midwest Industries or Yankee Hill make better sights for the money....
Pros:
  • None
Cons:
  • dont work
Best Used for:
  • Looks

Troy Battle Sights are 2nd to none

by Jesse Tischauser, from United States, OK Written on December 26, 2014
If you're looking for some serious flip up sights for full time use or as backups the Troy sights are where it's at. Tough enough for hard duty. They also look good! The locking detent is very positive so you know they are locked in place. The dual appature is perfect for precision work or high speed hosing....

Great rear sight

by Bigdawg, Verified Owner from United States, VA Written on March 25, 2013
Troy Folding Battle Sight Rear, T6 Aircraft Aluminum - Black FBS-R0BT-00

Great rear sight. I use the standard AR front sight and the Troy Co-witnesses through my EO Tech. When folded, it fits under the magnifier perfectly. Apertures are adequate even for the old man's eyes! Bulletproof sight...as sturdy as they come. A little expensive compared to other name brand comparible sights, but still worth every penny.
Pros: Bulletproof!
Cons: A little expensive...
