The ICS CXP Back Up Sight isn't your average iron sight. It is made out of a polymer material and is much easier to operate. By using your thumb, you can operate the front sight by pushing the front portion forward instead of using your entire hand to flip them up. This will allow the user to access their iron sights at a quicker rate and get back on target.
Model: CXP Back Up Sight
Package Includes: One (1) Sight

i built a dmr and i needed iron sights to be put at a 45 degree angle off setting my acog sight. it looks beautiful off set and it does a great job as an iron sight. its very low profile and very crisp when flipped up. I haven't had a single problem with it. the hex screw that screws the sights onto the rail was a little cheap and stripped pretty easily but i can still screw it into place no problem. i never take it off my rail so there is no point in me moving it around my rail system. overall this is a nice cheap iron sight of course you can pay a lot more and get some metal sights but i didn't find any problem with these at all and i currently still use them.
cheaper than most iron sights
look good folded and up
nice black finish to them
look even better off set 45 degree angle
not many at all
they are plastic so they can break but only if you are realiy trying to break them
the plastic isn't even that bad
highly recommend these to anyone looking for some cheaper iron sights that look good

I use a red dot reflex sight (without a riser) with my JG M4A1 rifle but occasionally forget to bring spare batteries while playing. I bought this accessory so that I would have a backup sight in case my red dot battery ever dies in the middle of a game.
For anyone who wants to use a red dot without a riser and still likes the option of using their iron sights, this is an excellent accessory for that purpose. This backup sight is fully made of plastic and lays flat when not in use. There is a thumb switch at the front of the sight that flips it up when needed. When in position, the sight looks and functions almost exactly the same as the iron sight on the carrying handle that came with my rifle. I say almost because the iron sight on the carrying handle had an elevation adjustment in addition to a windage adjustment. This sight only adjusts for windage. It does not have an elevation adjustment.
For the price and its intended purpose, this is an excellent buy. If you want a metal sight then expect to pay at least 2-3 times as much but if you just need a simple backup sight for an M16/M4 style rifle then get this sight!
Very low Profile when flipped down.
Easy adjustment for windage for both right/left handed people
Sturdy design, doesn't need re-adjusting once set.
Fixed elevation, cannot be adjusted.
Completely made of ABS plastic.
