Surefire Rapid Transition Sights DD-RTS-SET provide shooters with the quickest possible transition between longer- and closer-range target acquisition. This Surefire weapon accessory was designed by Barry Dueck, Director of SureFire's Suppressor Division and a top 3-Gun shooter. These replacement iron sights mount directly to a weapon's Picatinny rail, offset from center by approximately 45°. This unique offset position makes transitioning from optical to iron sights simply a matter of quickly canting the weapon with your wrists and locking on to the target. With the Sure Fire RTS Iron Sights, there's no removing a hand from the weapon or making a manual adjustment, and no cluttered field of vision or iron sights blocking the optical sight. Thanks to this unique SureFire innovation, you'll have smooth, quick transitions that could mean the difference between winning or losing a competition, or more importantly—a gunfight.
Surefire Dueck Defense Rapid Transition Sights (DD-RTS) are ideal for varied tactical conditions. For AR-15 / M16 type rifles, optical sights provide superior performance at longer ranges, but iron sights can be more effective for close-range engagements. However, attaching an optical sight either prevents the use of iron sights or results in a setup that produces a front sight "shadow" on the optical image, and/or results in problematic transitions from optical to backup iron sights. No longer, thanks to the Sure Fire Rapid Transition Sight. With these angled iron sights, you can greatly increasing your efficiency and effectiveness in battle and competition.
