FAB Defense FBS / RBS Backup Sights

IMG_1477

Backup sights are a controversial issue these days. There are an increasing number of shooters who feel that the current crop of military-grade reflex and prism sights (Aimpoints, Trijicon ACOGs, etc.) are tough enough and reliable enough that backup sights are no longer useful – that is to say, any event that’s traumatic enough to destroy an ACOG is probably not going to leave behind an intact rifle.

To my knowledge, most militaries still embrace backup sights as an essential. About the only first-rate military I’ve ever seen field optics without backup iron sights is the IDF – you can find plenty of pictures online of optics deployed on flat-top M16s without a rear backup sight..

Therefore, I assume FAB Defense developed the FBS / RBS backup sights for export. I have a 9mm AR-15 that needed some backup sights, and the FBS / RBS seemed like an interesting option. How did I like it? More after the break.

A New Sight Option for the KPOS G2

One of my key criticisms of the KPOS Glock chassis platform is that it does best with low profile sights, yet there were no good options for those sorts of sights on the market.

Well, it turns out that there is an option now, courtesy of our friends at CZ-USA: the Scorpion EVO 3 LPA iron sights. I was skeptical at first, but saw these sights on European Scorpion EVOs. The sights are made by LPA in Italy (ie, they are high quality), they’re fully adjustable, they mount on standard Picatinny rails, and best of all, they’re only $30 right now. They do lower 1/4 co-witness with my Holosun HS403C on KZ QD mount, which is perfect for fixed sights.

I highly recommend them!
