- Just what I needed!
These sights are great! Quick to install, low profile and built like a tank. Very easy to use with two sizes of apertures on the rear sight for your preference with just a quick flip.
When needed, just cant your weapon and keep going! I highly recommend these sights!

I Love them! Ingenious design. Simple installation and quick to transition just as advertised. It is just as accurate as the standard iron sights and in my own opinion are the best bang for the buck and you don't have to remove or flip up and aperatise during a fire fight. Kudos to Dueck and the team at Surefire. I've been a loyal customer for 8 years and I continue to come back for there quality and innovation!

- 45 degree sites
I really like the sites but my rifle fell over in the basement and broke the outside front site glare shield off. I stuck with a broken front and it still works ok just the danger of bumping the center post without the side guards. I wish Surefire would sell just a front site!

For AR-15 / M16 type rifles, optical sights provide superior performance at longer ranges, but iron sights can be more effective for close-range engagements. However, attaching an optical sight either prevents the use of iron sights or results in a setup that produces a front sight "shadow" on the optical image, and/or results in problematic transitions from optical to backup iron sights. Not anymore. Dueck Defense Rapid Transition Sights (RTS) provide shooters with the quickest possible transition between longer- and closer-range target acquisition, greatly increasing their efficiency and effectiveness in battle and competition. Designed by Barry DueckDirector of SureFire's Suppressor Division and a top 3-Gun shooterthese sights mount directly to a weapon's Picatinny rail, offset from center by approximately 45°. This unique offset position makes transitioning from optical to iron sights simply a matter of quickly canting the weapon with your wrists and locking on to the target. There's no removing a hand from the weapon or making a manual adjustment, and no cluttered field of vision or iron sights blocking the optical sight. Just smooth, quick transitions that could mean the difference between winning or losing a competition, or more importantlya gunfight.
