45Â° offset mounts for backup sights are becoming more popular. When needed, the shooter cants the weapon to the left to bring to sights into alignment with the target. Some of these new mounts utilize fixed sights which may become hung up on equipment or obstacles, while others utilize mini red dot sights which often rely on batteries themselves or may be suffer from broken glass. Knight’s Armament Corp on the other hand, has adapted their adjustable back up iron sights for use in the offset role.
The front sight is adjustable for elevation and the rear sight can be adjusted not only for windage, but also for ranges between 200-600 meters.
