Looking for info regarding the back up iron sites on top of the Trijicon ACOG TA01NSN, specifically how well they work, to what range they are suited, etc. Will they suffice in an emergency situation, or should I invest in some pop-up sites?

Thanks.

Talk to anybody who has the NSN model (like myself), and you'll immediately see the need for backup iron sights, like the ARMS#40. The rear aperature becomes non-existant when you put it up to your eye, so the front has nothing to really align with. At the least, they could have put up a set of Trijicon pistol sights that would have worked much better.

Agreed, they do work and are better than nothing... but not by much. I would guess the sight radius between the rear ring and the front post is smaller than most sub-compact pistols. They work marginally out to about 25 meters. Past that your going to need a bit of luck. In addition, most any NSN I have seen has needed to have the front sight drifted a little to zero it. I cant remember which way though!

they are best drifted off

if you want a CQB aid add the Dr Optik where the ghostring was

and get a BUIS as well.

dr optic, see- www.arizonagunrunners.com/Products/doctoroptics/doctorsight/doctorsight.html


get a tao1 and you'll save a couple of hundred bucks or so for your rdbus- or Red Dot Back Up Sight. so dubbed by canadian tactical, i believe.

I'm still waiting for gj or anyone else to help me out with a mount for my TA01NSN and Optima. Can anybody help me out? Gj seems to have dropped off of the planet. Thanks. Watch-Six

Watch - dunno - I have been trying to reach GJ for about 2 months now - Victor, said he has gone on electronic silence, as he tried to reach him as well (on behalf of us).

Inkabee, had made his own mount for the NSN - using bedding compound - and it looks very sweet as well.
