Aero Precision Sights Review

If you’re looking to add iron sights to your AR-15, this pair of flip ups from Ozark Armament are a great choice. They’re made from a combination of stainless steel and aluminum, and come in either black or a flat dark earth finish. They’re durable enough to resist impacts, and have been rated to handle 500 rounds per minute of sustained fire without issue. They mount securely to any Picatinny rail using a set of locking detent balls, and can be adjusted for windage with minimal effort. They’re also a great option for those who don’t want to spend much money on a pair of backup sights.

The Troy Industries Micro HK Front and Rear AR-15 Iron Sights are another great pair of backup sights to consider. They’re a little more expensive than the Magpul Gen 2 rear sight, but they offer better performance and a sleeker appearance. They’re designed to be a lightweight addition to any AR-15 setup, and are only about a half-inch long when folded. The adjustment for windage is so simple, it could be done by a toddler (though we don’t recommend letting yours near your weapons).

This rifle scope from Vortex uses high-quality glass and multicoating to maximize light transmission. The result is a clear, wide field of view that’s worth 2-4X its price tag. This scope also comes with a BDC 600 second focal plane reticle that is specifically engineered for the most common ammunition used in the AR-15, ensuring you’ll get accurate shot-to-shot ballistics data. This feature is especially useful for 3-gun shooting and hunting.
