Brownells Offers New Exclusive AR-15 Front Sight
Battle Arms Development's sight clamps onto a standard AR-15 barrel.
Brownells is offering a new AR-15 front sight, the Battle Arms Development ARCHITEK, #100-019-664. Available exclusively from Brownells, the new sight is designed to clamp onto a standard AR-15 barrel that is between .735 inches and .750 inches in diameter.
The ARCHITEK sight clamps on to the barrel and extends the sight radius to the maximum length possible. It works on rifles without the traditional front sight tower gas block. The sight also compensates for any variances in free-float handguard design or installation, or flexing due to firing or sling pressure that could cause imperfect sight alignment. Precision machined from billet aluminum, the ARCHITEK™ is strong but weighs only 1.3 ounces so it adds minimal weight to the set up while also keeping the rifle balanced and easy to handle.
“We are very pleased to offer our latest product, the ARCHITEK, exclusively through Brownells,” said George Huang, President/CEO of Battle Arms Development. “There is a long working history with Brownells since the early days of Battle Arms Development, and we are honored to be involved in this project.”
According to documentation about the new sight, the front sight post is thinner than the typical A2-style post and won’t obstruct targets at long ranges. Modeled after the AK-47 front post, the ARCHITEK front post allows adjustments with a set of standard pliers, or an AK-47 front sight tool.
