For those who own AR-15 or M16 type rifles, the optical sights offer superior performance at long ranges which make them perfect for hunting or target shooting. However, the iron sights which are designed for close range are often blocked by the addition of the optics or a shadow is produced on the optical image which results in a problematic issue for long range shooting. In such situations it can be difficult to transition between the iron sights and optical sights or vice versa.
The Dueck Defense Rapid Transition Sights (RTS) are designed to provide shooters with a quick, easy transition between long and short range target acquisition. This device will greatly increase the efficiency and effectiveness of going between each sight in all types of situations.
Created by Barry Dueck, the Director of the Suppressor Division at SureFire, as well as being a top flight gun shooter in his own regard, the sights he manufactured fit directly on the Picatinny rail and are offset from the center by about 45 degree. This unique position allows for the easy transition between optical and iron sights if the target is closing and vice versa if the target is moving away. Plus, for competitions when multiple targets at different distances are presented, the shooter can easily transition between their optical and iron sights at will.
All that is needed is simply to move the weapon with your wrist and lock onto the target with the appropriate sights. You do not need to make any manual adjustments or even remove your hand from the weapon. Instead, you get to enjoy a clear field of vision when going back and forth between sights.
The RTS does not interfere with primary optics or military IR illuminator or laser sight and is the same height above bore as the standard issue sights for the M4 and M16A4.
