The FFA-01 Front Sight Flashlight Adapter from TangoDown is a fixed front sight that mounts in front of a SureFire X-300 light, allowing access to the rear switch and providing the longest sight radius possible.
American Defense Manufacturing, LLC, more commonly referred to as ‘ADM’, has been around for a few years now, and I figured it was about time I featured some of their products on the site since I’ve been using them for a while.
The IO Cover is a one-handed, built-in lens cap for the Aimpoint Micro series of optics, providing protection for the lenses from rain or sand. They open, close and stow with one hand. The catch? They’re not in production yet. So this is a preview to help spread the word on the project.
The Premium Diamond Sights from Diamondhead-USA, and available from Rainier Arms are a series of flip-up combat sights for the AR-15 which utilize proprietary diamond-shaped apertures and front housing, rather than the standard M4 round rear aperture with front ‘wings’ sight picture. They offer and alternative sight picture that is intended to make it easier to line up the front and rear sights.
The ANGLESIGHTâ„¢ from Accutact is a dual-path optic that allows aiming and firing around obstacles and corners, while allowing the shooter to transition from a concealed shot to a standard shoulder-aimed shot without repositioning the optic on the weapon.
Two of the latest mounts for the Aimpoint Micro sights from LaRue Tactical are the Absolute Co-witness Micro Mount LT-751 and the Angled QD LT-724 mount. The LT-751 places the Micro at the correct height above the flat top receiver to center it in the iron sights. The LT-724 puts the Micro at an offset so that it can be mounted in front of a magnified optic, and used by canting the rifle over a few degrees for rapid transition to close-range targets.
LaRue’s LT-105 Compact ACOG Mount is made for Trijicon’s compact ACOGs that utilize the carry handle mount with single screw. It’s been out for quite a while, but I didn’t have the occasion to use one as I didn’t have a compact ACOG, until now. The TA44SR-10 is one of the latest compact models from Trijicon, and also the smallest and lightest to date.
Battle Arms Development (BAD) is offering an improved Bracket and Screw set that replaces the original bracket and screw on the issue Matech B.U.I.S. It features a thicker and stronger bracket and a stronger screw with smaller Allen head socket to minimize over-torquing.
I previewed Vltor’s VST-1C (Vltor Sight Tower) Assembly on the M4K and on the midlength VIS build, back in January ’07 and they’ve been available for a while now. A few months ago, Vltor updated the design with four different variations available.
The MRDS (Mini Red Dot Sight) from Insight Tech-Gear is a non-magnified, light weight, ruggedized reflex weapon sight intended to be used as a stand-alone primary sight, or as a secondary/backup sighting device in addition to a primary optic. It mounts to existing optics as well as MIL-STD 1913 Picatinny and Weaver-style rails, utilizing available aftermarket mounts. It is designed to meet and exceed military durability specifications for equipment used by special operations personnel under combat conditions. Insight Tech-Gear is a leading provider to tactical lasers, illuminators and thermal imaging equipment to the military.
