When he first encountered offset backup iron sights designed for an AR-style rifle, our Rifles editor wasn't too impressed. Here are his thoughts now.
Looking for backup iron sights for a scoped rifle? Offset sights may be just the way to go.
Technology and demand are driving a light-rifle trend that shows no signs of slowing down. Purpose-built, flyweight guns are a dream to carry and shoot, but the additional machining, exotic materials and manufacturing methods that can bring something like an AR rifle down to 4.5 pounds make it expensive.
Perfect when using a suppressor or a red dot with an HK VP9 pistol.
