Diamondhead USA Polymer Diamond Front Sight - NiteBrite
The Polymer Diamond Front Sight is an ultra-lightweight alternative to the Diamond Combat Sight. It’s diamond-shaped upper housing allowing the eye to rapidly place the front sight post in the exact center of the rear aperture.
Featuring NiteBrite photoluminescent inserts, this low-cost alternative to tritium sights help in low-light conditions and can be charged by natural light or with a flashlight.
Note: Due to heat issues, this sight is not suitable for railed gas block installation.

Ratings & Reviews
Bulky but functional
by Lawrence Charfauros
I really like the look and function of these sights. Only gripes are that the're a little bulky compared to my MBUS 2 sights and the buttons to deploy are only on one side. Its as advertised. I'm happy with it.
Front sight doesn't glow
by Brian Elliott
These look really good and are a better alternative to the Magpul polymer sights. the flip-up mechanism works great. The only issue I had was that the front post does not glow at all. I have not experimented with leaving it in the sun to "charge" it. Will try it out. If it works, I'll give it 5 stars.
Competitively Priced Sights [front & rear]
These Sights are fairly sturdy. For plastic - - Sorry "Polymer" materials, the design and manufacture of this product is about as good as the very well know, Magpul-MBUS products, and not very different in price. The product has spring loaded mechanisms to deploy and the front one has click-adjustments that need no tool to lower/raise.

These work great. These are easy to pick up and the glowing strip along with the glowing front sight post makes them easy to pick up at night.
