Preview: Scalarworks Peak Iron Sights

posted on September 27, 2021

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).
