I've been asked to post some pictures of my Samson sight, so here they are. I'm very impressed with the quality and the simplicity of this piece of gear. With TROY's questionable customer service, I'm glad to see another manufacturer step up to the plate.








And the rifle it sits on.....



I know that John at Rainier Arms ordered a bunch of these if anyone's in the market this sight.

Are there any plans for a corresponding rear sight?

Do they have a similar one for gas blocks? I'd like one. May just get one of these anyway...

I never realized how many things in daily life is spring loaded...
My chair, car's shock absorbers, mattrese (and box springs), and every little key on the keyboard

Do you think it will take that long? I think they fixed the #1 issue with the Troy sights - that stupid AK system which required a special tool to adjust. The ability to use AR front sights (and hence tritium front sights) and to adjust with a cartridge is a big plus.

What? No reply from Grant yet? Isn't this a Samson thread?

I hate to speak for Scott, so I hope he comes along to confirm or deny either way, but based on our conversations at SHOT, the answer is no, not currently.
And this sight is, the best rail mounted sight out....bar none.

I also talked to Scott today via email and he said no rear sights right now. He said they are still using the ARMS rear BUIS so they anodized their front flip sight the same color to match.

That's affirmative. Samson recommended the ARMS #40L, which is what I bought and installed on the rifle pictured above. The sight's match perfectly.

Yes they do, I corresponded with Scott a couple of weeks ago about the same thing. Some pictures were posted here. Try a search for Sampson. Pictures are also on thier website. This looks like one of the best sight s out there to me. The gas block version is designed to sit flush with your pic rail, looks nice!

The barrel mount one is a flip up with an integral gas block. Maybe I can add a riser to my gas block, then the Samson sight...

You consider a crushed 5.56 case a special tool?
