Default back up sights that mount to the scope??

When I had an ACOG it had a front and rear blade bolted on top as a down and dirty iron sight system. The same length as a pistol, but effective at close range. I have been told they make these for all scopes 1" and 30mm bodies, but I can't find them. All I can find is the adjustment level that is fitted to the focus ring to give you a larger lever to turn the ring.

Can anyone help with a website?

What's your purpose for them? Is it to mount on an AR or bolt rifle? Is it to be used as back up or for close in shooting? I ask because a set of Surefire/Dueck offset irons would probably serve you better if it is for an AR. If it is a bolt gun regular sights with a tool to remove the scope would be better if the scope breaks. Thats my take goodluck with the search.

ETA: My above post is assuming a magnified optic, non-magnified I'd stick with regular irons as BUIS.

Something like the JP SRTS on the handguard will serve you a whole lot better than something on top of scope that has you prairie dogging your head up out of your cheek weld to use. With hand guard mounted backup irons, you just cant the rifle and keep head/cheek position as is. Much faster transition to the irons.

I will be seeing CW in about an hour. I agree with him, I would rather "prairie dog" then twist the rifle 45 and have stuff hanging off the side that can snag on stuff. I dont 3 gun, so my use isnt in a controlled area. Stuff hanging off of your rifle in a real world situation tends to hinder you. 3 gun isnt real life.

Walking through the brush I know that will snag. heck a normal FSB snags on stuff. Slinging the rilfe either American or African style will cause problems with those hanging off at the 45.

I may go with flip-ups mounted at the 45, but never fixed. If its fixed I want the same small ghost ring and blade that came on my ACOG in the military.

OK, I guess you must be really narrow then

I find that even a 40 round mag doesn't stick out beyond my arms when canting to acquire HG mounted sights. No matter how tight you keep your elbows in I seriously doubt that anything sticks out further than the elbows do.

I also seriously doubt anything on the handguard will snag any worse than the barrel, pistol grip, magazine or anything else will either. Unbelievable what else I see folks hanging on the handguard in the interest of being practical. A shoulder slung rifle is always inside the arms when walking anyway. Tac slung, it's the barrel and butt that protrude.

Each to their own.

Again, each to his own way

Go your own way, more power to ya' :-)

I only say one thing, I AM not a newbie, and I have opinions not based on attitude, bit on practical experience.

Peace Bro, carry on!

It has nothing to do with to each his own.......

I am looking for a mod chip for a 2008 6 cyl Mustand.

Can anyone help?

REPLY ANSWERS-

1) Well the Tokyo Drifter cars are all Civics and Toyota's, so you really need to look into those.

2) Well I am watching the drag racing circuit and I have to agree, they use 8cyc cars or small cars for racing... you need to buy one of those.
