Sneak Peek – Remington Defense 45 Deg Backup Iron Sights

The new 45 deg offset back up iron sights from Remington Defense were developed as a component for their Compact Semi-Automatic Sniper System candidate rifle.  

Consisting of front and rear sights, they are collapsible and adjustable for zero.  

Front Sight

Rear Sight

Additionally, these seem to be the first backup sights that are truly ambidextrous.  The rear sight can be flipped about, the opposite way and the actual sight separated from the mount and reattached, pointed in the proper direction.  The Picatinny compatible rear sight is easily secured via a hex head screw.


With the recent announcement of several Remington Defense rifles for sale commercially, we are hoping to see these available soon as well.

    I believe Troy has a set of Ambi 45 degree sights before these. I thought there was one more company that had a set but you have to use them backwards.

    Yes, but how does the front attach? M-Lok? Or is it a proprietary mounting system only available on the R5 and ACR?
