Aero Precision AR-15 Flip-Up Front and Rear Sight Set
The front sight is adjustable for elevation using a MIL-SPEC A2 front sight tool, while the rear has an adjustment knob for windage. A spring-loaded push button automatically deploys the sights when needed, and the low-profile rear sight will fit beneath most scopes when stowed.
Whether used as your main sights or as back-up irons, you can count on the accuracy and durability this set offers. Specifically designed for the AR-15/M16 platform, they will fit most 1913 Picatinny rail sections.

Nice metal BUIS

Great sights for the money. I think they chose to manufacture HK-Style as it seems to be the most desirable. Some companies use plastic. Really? Plastic is for kids toys. Nice lightweight, sturdy aluminum sights. Easy to deploy. I mounted these in about 60 seconds and only had to make a minor adjustment when sighting them in. A pretty good first attempt for AERO. PA always carries a great selection. Thank you to all the good folks at PA.
Not right for me, but a good product.

The quality is very good. There were some design decisions on these that lead to me returning them and going with the tried and true Troy sights. I didn't like the location of the windage knob being on the left side of the gun. I also didn't like the HK style front and feel that Aero would be wise to also offer a standard M4 style front. The spring action did work well, and the sights are very light. Not bad for Aero's first attempt at this type of product. If they went with a recessed windage knob on the other side and a standard M4 front, I'd consider them again.
Overall these are outstanding. Solid high quality machining with the best materials and very sleek and stylish to boot. My only complaint actually is that the apertures on the rear sight are large enough such that when closed the small aperture is a few mm taller than the folded sight itself and bumps into the eyepiece on my scope even though I have it mounted on a fairly high mount (an Aero mount no less). Only slightly annoying, I just need a higher mount now I guess.
