Blitzkrieg PTR Chevron Front Sight Gen 2 (Orange)
Fits: HK Style Front Sight Tower on Rifles and Pistols Made by
PTR. PTR front sights are very similar to HK front sights, but have a
few differences and this model is made to take those into account. (For Center-Fire Firearms - Does Not Fit .22 LR guns)
The Blitzkrieg Components Gen 2 HK Style Front Sight is a revolutionary approach to this iconic sighting system. It provides a stunning sight picture, rapid & precise aiming and installs in a completely new way. We also brought the sight face forward, toward the shooter, so that is is easier to see and not back in the shadows of the sight hood. The sharp aiming point and eye catching boldness of the chevron combined with the circle-in-circle front/rear sight alignment, gives the shooter a new level of speed and precision in an iron sight. The Orange Stripe model provides a bold, fast sight picture with the bright, contrasting orange chevron stripe. You will love the way this sight looks and how well you shoot with it.
Installation has been completely re-engineered for our Gen 2 HK sight models to eliminate problems like sliding a nicely finished sight through a tight slot or hammering a roll pin through a new sight putting stress on it. Now the roll pin is installed first, then the new sight is installed easily and securely by hand. The roll pin is used as an anti-rotation device. This new design also allows a new level of flexibility. Once initial installation is complete, the shooter has the option of changing reticles by hand in less than a minute. So if you want to change colors or try a new sight model in the future, installation is a snap.
Made in the USA of billet machined 416 Stainless Steel with a black oxide finish and a painted chevron stripe.
Paint Characteristics: The Orange Chevron stripe is a bright, contrasting color designed to be easy to pick up against any type of background. This is NOT a glow paint. It provides a very bright, fast sight picture as long as there is some amount of light. This color has proven to be very effective and is well liked by many of our customers. The painted stripe is a multi-layer paint application into a machined groove for optimal color and durability.
