AR-15 Chevron Front Sight Post (Luminescent Green/Tritium Dot) with tool included

The Blitzkrieg Components AR-15 Chevron Front Sight Post (Patented) provides the ultimate iron sight picture with both a perfectly sharp aiming point and a bold, fast sight picture. The Tritium Dot model provides a very effective low light capability with the bold, bright glowing chevron and a Tritium Dot at the top of the chevron The Tritium and Luminescent stripe are only visible on one side, so there is no glow toward the enemy. The Chevron gives the perfect blend of speed and precision. The Chevron design has many unique advantages. The tip of the chevron gives the shooter a sharp aiming point for precise aiming and high confidence on difficult shots, while the bold chevron shape is easy to see and pick up quickly without obscuring the target. The contrasting Luminescent Chevron Stripe gives the shooter an eye catching sight picture that excels in both bright-light and low-light environments and the Tritium Dot adds a night capability for when the Luminescent Stripe has not been charged. The Chevron Shape makes for an improved sight picture with any type of protective wings, whether using standard wings, semi-hooded Troy HK style, fully hooded, Magpul MBUS or diamond shaped. This sight post improves the sight picture of all of those designs. It also works great when co-witnessing sights and optics.

Precision machined from billet 416 Stainless Steel to the tightest tolerances for an outstanding sight picture and precise fit in any AR-15 front sight housing. The finish is a black oxide matte finish. The Luminescent Green Stripe appears more yellow in daylight and glows green in low light. It is a 5 layer paint application into a machined grove on one sight of the sight. this gives you a bright yellow contrast stripe in daylight and a bright green glowing chevron in low light and darkness. The Tritium Dot adds the advantage of a visible dot in total darkness when the Luminescent paint has not be able to absorb any light Each sight comes with a matching sight adjustment tool making installation and adjustment a snap. The tool is designed for a precise fit to this sight design and is also billet machined from 416 stainless with a black oxide matte finish.

Glow Characteristics: The Luminescent (Glow) Chevron Stripe glows very bright when charged and the glow brightness dissipates gradually in darkness. The brighter and longer the light charge is, the brighter and longer the glow will be. Sunlight and Tactical LED flashlights give the best charge. Will glow well after just a few seconds of charge, but will glow longer with a longer charge. Typically, in total darkness after being charged you can expect it to glow very bright for 5 minutes, bright for 20-30 minutes and at a lower level for several hours. This works very well to have a very bright glow when transitioning from daylight to a dark room and as your eyes adjust to lower light levels, the lower level glow will still appear bright and very easy to pick up. As the Luminescent paint begins to lose it's charge over time in total darkness, the Tritium Dot continues to provide an always-on aiming dot. This dual capability gives you the full range of night sight capability with the brightness of the Luminescent stripe when possible and the Tritium Dot when unable to charge your sights.

* Includes Sight Tool. Our Universal Sight Tool is needed to fit our Chevron Sights. A standard sight tool will not fit over the chevron. You can use our sight tool or a bullet tip to adjust for elevation. We offer this sight with the sight tool at a discount.

5 of 5 Must have for any AR15 May 26, 2020
Reviewer: Alex Hallstrom from Arlington , NE United States  
Everyone should absolutely have this model, or one of the other simple glowing designs. The sight was built better than I expected, and smaller and more precise than I expected too. Tritium and glow strips function properly, and seeded into my rifle and co-witnessed with my Eotech with no problems. What this does for the applicability of iron sights in modern day is frankly revolutionary. Modern battery-powered optics are great, but batteries might not be available. Batteries can also fail. Iron sights are necessary to make sure you always have a way of aiming. Also, an often overlooked and very important fact is that iron sights work just fine in rain/snow. Same goes with canted iron sights, this is an enormous and affordable upgrade. I’m very happy!

5 of 5 Great for us more distinguished (old) shooters. March 29, 2020
Reviewer: Larry Ellington from Elburn, IL United States  
Recently picked up a Blitzkrieg Flat Tritium Circle Dot Sight Post - Magpul MBUS PRO (Luminescent Green Circle). Really liked it. Unfortunately, they do not offer it for fixed front sight posts, so I grabbed this Chevron. Both are very nice. Getting a little older. I wear readers now, so my close up vision is starting to suffer. During quals with irons, the front sight was washing out on the black qual target. With this contrast, I can pick up the front sight a lot faster, and see where it is on a black target. If you are getting a little older as well, grab one of these for sure.

5 of 5 Recommended. March 11, 2020
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Eastanollee, GA United States  
I put this on my pistol build which was perfect for it. The luminous strips are bright when charged with light and the tritium dot is very noticeable compared to other tritium sights I have.

5 of 5 Chevron Tridum front sight September 26, 2019
Reviewer: The Phoenix from United States  
The adjustment is a course setting when put in MBUS flip ups..... The dot and strip in on one side only  ..... But the one in my EXM4 with the 300/600 carry handle is adjustable front and rear....so it's spot on at one click forward of factory zero....
             If they ever make these with the split index but as found on typical Tridum front pins.... It would be a six star rating!
