PRESS RELEASE:

AR-15 Spike Front Sight Post – For Magpul MBUS Pro (Luminescent Green Stripe)

AR-15 Spike Front Sight Post for Magpul MBUS Pro with Luminescent Green Stripe 001
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.

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.
