Surefire Rapid Transition Sights Product Info

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.

Great back up iron sights when using a scope on your AR. Heavy duty, well made, and return to zero easily. These were easy to mount and just as easy to zero. They are canted to the side of the weapon, but do not extend out enough to be a snagging ...

Most Recent Review Surefire Rapid Transition Sights by Marty, December 11, 2014
These sights were easy to install, easy to zero, and seem to be made very well. They lock down secure and do not stick out enough to cause problems with snagging. They are easy to use, with just a slight movement you can go from long range optics to ...

Most Recent Review Surefire = Sure Thing! by Legacy Reviewer, August 12, 2013
When I purchased my AR it came with flip-up sights. They were wobbly, and not at all repeatable for zero. These sights are SOLID, hold their zero, and are just like the original sights on the M16-A2 I used to shoot in the military. Very high quali...

Most Recent Review Surefire RTS sights by Legacy Reviewer, August 12, 2012
The Surefire RTS sights are my favorite fixed sights. They are out of the way of your main sight and come in handy in bad situations. Will be putting these on my AR's to come. Pros: Easy install and like the setup Cons: Cost to much
