Do you have a scope mounted on your AR-15? When targets get closer, lots of shooters don’t want to take the time to adjust magnification down to 1X. That’s when a set of offset iron sights can be awfully handy, allowing the shooter to simply angle the rifle and engage quickly.
EZ Accuracy has rolled out a set of new 60-degree fiber optic sights that the maker says allows for better accuracy than existing options. Here’s their press release . . .
EZ Accuracy introduces the EZ-60, a 60-degree offset sights that use Williams Gun Sight Company fiber optic sights.
WARMINSTER, Pennsylvania- 2MAY2019- EZ Accuracy, a gunsmith shop and innovator of firearms tools and accessories, announced today the release of 60-degree offset sights that use Williams Gun Sight Company fiber optics. The sights are the brainchild of avid 3-gun shooter Chris Englebert. “I didn’t like having to constantly adjust my scopes magnification. It takes valuable time while quickly transitioning between multiple targets at different distances, time I didn’t want to lose,” says Chris.“The only offset sights on the market were based on standard military sights and I wanted something more precise.”
While military style sights are fine for combat, they lack pin point accuracy. When Chris brought the idea to Eric Feldman of EZ Accuracy, the two realized they could use what is already on the market by partnering with Williams Gun Sight Company. “I’ve always been a fan of Williams fiber optic sights and have used them on my own guns as well as customers guns for many years,” says Eric. “They are made to a high standard and hold up well. Having an optic with magnification is obviously needed for distance shots, but for me, there isn’t anything better than traditional style fiber optic for close shots.”
Most offset sights are clocked at 45 degrees. After extensive testing, it was realized that a 60-degree offset doesn’t require the user to manipulate the rifle much more and it ensures that the sights will clear the large turrets found on some scopes today. The set will slide onto any mil-spec picatinny rail and uses a socket head screw to clamp them into place. They are 100% made in the USA and are machined from the bar stock of a high-quality aluminum.
These sights were designed to fill a void in the competition market but we see a use in hunting rifles as well, as more and more states begin to allow the use of semi-auto rifles. There is nothing worse than missing an animal that requires a close shot but you lose it in the magnification of the scope.
EZ Accuracy is currently taking pre-orders for the sight sets at a discounted rate and are offering free shipping. The introductory sale price is $115 which includes the EZ 60 (sight set) as well as the Williams Gun Sight Company fiber optics.
