Blitzkrieg Components has announced their new AR-15 Spike Front Sight Post for the Magpul MBUS Pro featuring a Luminescent Green Stripe. They are accepting pre-orders now with an expected shipping date of September 8, 2015.
AR-15 Spike Front Sight Post – For Magpul MBUS Pro (Luminescent Green Stripe)
The Blitzkrieg Components AR-15 Spike Front Sight Post for the Magpul MBUS Pro sights provides superior sighting with a sharp aiming point and a bold, fast sight picture. The sharp aiming point enables precise aiming and high confidence on difficult shots. The bold, contrasting Luminescent Green Stripe gives the shooter an eye catching sight picture that excels in both bright-light and low-light environments and against all types of backgrounds. It is very fast and very easy to see.
Our sight posts are precision machined from billet 416 Stainless Steel for an outstanding sight picture and precise fit in the popular Magpul MBUS Pro front sight housing. Has a matte black melonite finish which is very durable and very corrosion resistant. 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. This gives you a bright yellow contrast stripe in daylight and a bright green glowing stripe in low light and darkness. Simple Drop-In installation with no tools required. Simply unscrew the factory sight post by hand and screw in the Blitzkrieg Components sight post using the sight’s elevation adjustment knob and you are ready to go.
Glow Characteristics: The Luminescent (Glow) 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, but any type of lighting will work. It will glow very bright after just a few seconds of charge, and will glow longer with a bit longer charge. Typically, in total darkness after being charged you can expect it to glow very bright for 5 minutes, brighter than tritium for 30 minutes and at a lower level for a few 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. Additionally, the bright glow makes the sight dramatically easier to pick up against dark targets and background clutter where black sight posts get completely lost.

Magpul, which apparently does not allow their R&D Department to rest, has once again added some additional weapon upgrades to their line-up. Neither of these products will make a dent in your piggy bank, nor will they make your significant other change your sleeping quarters to the couch when you purchase them.
The MBUS (Magpul Back Up Sight) Pro is the beefed up version of the original MBUS and now has an Enhanced Front Sight Post available as an upgrade. The Enhanced Front Sight Post will work with both the MBUS Pro and MBUS Pro Offset Front Sights and is precision machined out of alloy steel and has a MIL-SPEC Manganese Phosphate finish.
The rectangular cross-section of the Enhanced Front Sight Post offers two options; a 0.040″ Match Profile for more precision shooting or a 0.060″ Standard Profile. Both of these profiles are available in the same post. Follow the installation and adjustment instructions on the Magpul webpage for more info.
Since there is a minute difference in sizes, Magpul is helping you out in figuring out which profile is which by adding in a marking dimple for easier identification of the Match width side.
The MBUS Pro Enhanced Front Sight Post is available for $9.95.

When I found out about the non-profit, “Hope For The Warriors” and what they do to help our veterans who have sacrificed so much, I felt we had to do something. So, we went to work to create a one-of-a-kind custom patterned rifle. We wanted it to be something that would surely stand out, to honor those who have sacrificed for our freedom, and to give the winner something to be proud of. Our designer came up with something quite unique and incredibly awesome looking! — J. Delgado, CEO of Double D Armory, LTD.
The Double D Armory, Model: SST AR-15 is a tribute to 9-11 and is a unique Commemorative, One-of-a-kind, Limited Edition Rifle. This drawing will be held on September 12, 2015 at Centennial Gun Club’s 2nd Annual Firearms Festival–an event you don’t want to miss! The winner doesn’t have to be present to win.
“We are excited to team up with Double D Armory and “Hope for the Warriors” to remember and honor those who sacrificed so much, if not all, in the 9-11-01 terrorist attacks and those veterans who have also selflessly sacrificed. Jay builds a great rifle, it is our number 1 selling rifle at CGC, and the one-of-a-kind patriotic design for this giveaway is just awesome! We will announce the winner of this pro-America, commemorative gun at our 2nd annual Firearms Festival on September 12th. It will be fantastic to give a big check to Hope for the Warriors-who so competently and tirelessly help our veterans and their families.” — Paul Stanley, General Manager at Centennial Gun Club.

“When Double D Armory contacted us and asked if we would like to be a part of this, we were all over it. For Double D Armory and Centennial Gun Club to come together like this speaks wonders about these two awesome organizations. This is going to be one event we can’t miss, and I personally will be flying out to be part of this. I really hope the community comes together on this and helps them reach their goal.” –Chris Sharon – Hope For The Warriors, Director, Outdoors Adventures.
This is such a great cause and hopefully this fundraiser reaches it’s goal. With 100% of the proceeds going to “Hope For The Warriors”, it’s going to support a great charity.
