Anyone who has ever tried to shoot a firearm in low-visibility conditions knows how important it is to have highly visible sight posts, but such sights are often very expensive. Fortunately, Diamondhead has developed the Polymer Spring-Loaded Flip-Up Rear Sight with NiteBrite to provide you with excellent visibility at a much lower cost.

This rear sight can be mount on any weapon with a top Picatinny rail. Two NiteBrite inserts to the sides of the aperture help you line up the sights even when ambient light is insufficient. Both the long and short-range apertures feature a diamond shape to help you line it up with the front sight faster.

This rear sight can also be folded down or flipped up in a fraction of a second, making it a perfect backup sight for a scope or red dot. The sight is made from advanced polymers that are exceptionally strong but light as a feather.
