Scalarworks is known primarily for its lightweight and durable optics mounts, and when approached by firearm trainer and Special Operations veteran Larry Vickers with a request to create the ultimate set of front and rear fixed iron sights for a fighting carbine, the company applied those same design priorities to the Peak sight project.
The resulting sights (front and rear sold separately) are CNC-machined from 7075-T6 aluminum billet, providing uncompromising strength while together adding only 2.4 ozs. to the weight of the rifle. Thoughtfully engineered, Peak sights offer operators with an effective, streamlined design with a sight picture that is effective and intuitive to use.
Peak rear sights offer shooters a custom aperture with a face engineered to mitigate light glare, drawing the shooter’s focus to the absolute center. Scalarworks includes protective sight wings on each unit; the front sight wings are flared and the rear straight.
Both components, front fixed and rear fixed, are adjustable (front for elevation and rear for windage) with 1/2-m.o.a. click adjustments when set 15” apart. The 0.07” and 0.20” sight apertures, when installed, measure 1.42” over rail. Installation requires Picatinny-style rail and use of a non-protruding, T25 Torx machine screw. Type III anodizing and Nitride treatments are used for corrosion and wear resistance. Manufacturer suggested retail price is set individually; Front Fixed ($130) and Rear Fixed ($130).
