Diamondhead USA just released their new Polymer Flip Up Sights. Known for their metal sights, their new polymer versions are a more affordable alternative that have some of the same features as their metal flip up sights. As with most other back up sights they mount to a Picatinny rail, they’re made out of a advanced polymer/composite material and weight in at just 1.2oz for the front and 1.5oz for the rear. They feature the patented Diamond-shaped apertures and housings as Diamondheads metal flip up sights as well NiteBrite Photoluminescent Inserts that can be charged with natural light or with a flashlight.
The sights are spring-loaded and deploy quickly with the push of a button. The rear sight has dual same plane long and short range apertures with .5MOA windage adjustment and are the exact same height as A2 sights. The front sight features elevation adjustment that doesn’t require tools. However just like other front sights on the market, the front sight can’t be mounted directly onto gas blocks. The front sight retails at $49 and the rear for $69. Check them out at Diamondhead-USA.com.
