The back-up sight can be installed up to a height of 11 mm / 0.433“ for A and 15 mm / 0.591“ for B directly to the scope without using an adapter. Beyond these dimensions we recommend either a side-mounted UNIVERSAL adapter T0960-0005 or the use of one of our spacers.

While many weapons are equipped with BUIS (Backup Iron Sights) for emergency use in the event of a scope failure, they require the removal of the scope before the BUIS can be flipped up ready for use.
With our new Backup Sights there is no need to remove the scope because they are directly mounted to the top of the scope via our UNIVERSAL-interface. The weapon remains continuously available for use even in the event of a scope failure.
Should the scope be set at a high magnification for long distance shooting the Backup-Sight allows the shooter to quickly and effectively engage suddenly appearing close range targets. The sights are available in two versions, either with a fiber optic or solid post front sight.
The clicks of the front and rear sight are calibrated for 1 MOA (3 cm at 100 m), allowing for a wide vertical and horizontal range of adjustment (240 cm at 100 m) and easy sighting-in. These sights require no batteries and thus are always ready for use. Corrosion-resistant Mil-spec materials and raised sides protecting the ghost ring and front sight from impact damage ensure many years of trouble-free service.
