Gear & Accessories NRA Show First Look: Blackhawk Folding Back-Up Sights G&A Online Editors May 6th, 2014 | More From G&A Online Editors Share0 Tweet Email Share on Facebook.Share on Twitter.Share on Google+Introduced at the 2014 NRA Show, Blackhawk Folding Back-Up Sights were developed from the recommendations of rifle users who demanded specific functionalities from secondary sighting systems. Constructed from a lightweight polymer base combined with aluminum parts, the sights have an overall weight of just 2 ounces. When not in use, Blackhawk’s sights fold down to fit under optics without obstructing sight picture. When it’s time to deploy, simply activate the spring-loaded sights with ambidextrous thumb paddles. The front sight features a standard A2-style post, interchangeable with most front sight posts such as that of tritium replacements. The rear sight is adjustable for windage and features a fixed aperture for all-purpose, no-frills operation. Blackhawk Folding Back-Up Sights are available now for $59.99 each.
