The sights lock securely into the up position and are lowered by pressing the button on their left sides. The sights are constructed mainly of anodized 7075 aluminum and Nicorr-coated 4140 steel. These sight are a must have for any AR-15 / M-16. Mountable to any 1913 picatinny rail” Skirmish Sights feature a locking helicoil which requires no additional thread lock for installation and will stand up to thousands of rounds of recoil and rugged use.
