No matter how great your optic is, you should always have a good pair of back up sights in case it fails. The Troy Industries Tritium HK Style Folding Front BattleSight is a rugged, reliable solution to this issue. The HK hooded sight style is the go-to choice for spec ops and tactical operators worldwide. In fact, some shooters find the Troy HK style sight so fast and accurate, that they ditch their fancy optics altogether. Of course, this is a matter of your individual shooting style. The Troy HK Tritium Folding Sight locks in solid when you want it and folds neatly out of the way when you choose.
The Troy HK tritium sight Is designed for harder use than anybody outside of the military is ever likely to put it through. Certainly, the Troy HK style sight sets the world standard for performance and durability. The partial enclosure around the sight post prevents it from being damaged or knocked out of zero. A precision mounting mechanism eliminates cant, ensuring that the sight stays exactly as you left it.
While compared to cheap knockoffs, the price point at first seems stiff, in this case, you definitely get your money's worth. The Troy HK Tritium Folding Sight is not some injection molded trinket. This is part of a quality, precision machined sighting system that easily shoots Sub-MOA. Of course, if your gun is meant for close quarter self-defense, then Sub-MOA accuracy doesn't mean that much. In that case, you can depend on your Troy HK tritium sight to hold "minute of bad guy" accuracy in low-light environment and that does mean a lot.
The circular hood and Tritium dot on the Troy HK Tritium folding Sight work together to improve your sight picture. The classic HK hood shields the front sight post from glare in bright light. At the same time, the Tritium dot gently self-illuminates for target alignment in less than perfect circumstances. When you are using your optic, just fold the BattleSight down to lock it in place, where it will stay well out of the way. Should your optic fail or you need the sight for close quarters shooting, just flip up the sight to return it to its upright position. This model has been improved with the addition of a tritium sight post, which will ensure positive sight orientation even in the darkest conditions!
