Brownells now offers a new AR-15 front sight, the Battle Arms Development ARCHITEK, #100-019-664. Available exclusively from Brownells, the sight retails for $89.99.

Designed for shooters who prefer using iron sights, the ARCHITEK simply clamps onto a standard AR-15 barrel between .735- and .750-inch in diameter, and extends the sight radius to the maximum length possible. It works on rifles without the traditional front sight tower gas block.

It also compensates for any variances in freefloat handguard design or installation, or flexing due to firing or sling pressure that could cause imperfect sight alignment. Precision machined from billet aluminum, the ARCHITEK is strong but weighs only 1.3 ounces to help keep the rifle balanced and fast-handling.

"We are very pleased to offer our latest product, the ARCHITEK, exclusively through Brownells," said George Huang, President/CEO of Battle Arms Development. "There is a long working history with Brownells since the early days of Battle Arms Development, and we are honored to be involved in this project."

The front sight post is thinner than the typical A2-style post and won't obstruct targets at long ranges. Modeled after the AK-47 front post, the ARCHITEK front post allows adjustments with a set of standard pliers, or an AK-47 front sight tool.

Merchandise Manager Paul Levy demonstrated the ARCHITEK in a video filmed at the Big Springs range complex.

Customers can order an ARCHITEK front sight from Brownells.com, or call 800-741-0015.
