Strike Industries Sidewinder BUIS


Generally, when you describe someone as a “Jack of all trades” it follows that we’re talking about “a master of none.” This time, that’s dead wrong. The Strike Industries Sidewinder is a backup iron sight that can be used as a left or right 45 degree offset sight, as an inline co-witness sight set or as a backup you can use with optics in place in close quarters battle situations. If you need an offset AR sight, this is the one.

More Than Just A Offset Iron Sights

Strike Industries Sidewinder Iron sights are more than just a simple offset AR sight, they can play the role of any iron sights you need them to. If you need a 45 degree offset sight you can use the Sidewinder mounted on either side of your system with no penalty to performance. The Sidewinder setup uses the Strike Industries Ambush mounting system which allows them to clear even the largest optics so you don’t have to remove your glass to go to iron sights in a hurry. This makes the Sidewinder Sight set a perfect option for operators who find themselves moving from ranged shooting scenarios to close quarters battle with little transition. When used as a co-witness sight, the Sidewinder gives a foolproof second sight line on your target.

Offset Sight to Co-Witness Sight

When used as an inline sight, the Strike Industries Sidewinder makes a fine traditional iron sight as well as an awesome option for those who need a backup for a red dot sight. The Sidewinder makes a fine lower 1/3 co-witness sight with standard A2 height sights and isn’t likely to get caught up in snags and cause grief in the field. The inclusion of dial adjustments for tool-free adaptation for windage and elevation is a feather in the Sidewinder’s cap. We agree with Strike, it’s a “Jack of all trades without compromise.”
