Due to lack of availability of our favorite iron sights, we've decided to come out with our own so we can ensure a good source.
The ODS PH-1 is inspired by the variable diopter sights common on AR style rifles.
The front sight post is a miniaturized version of the AR-15 style. We'll be selling a couple of different sight post heights for those wishing to zero at extreme distances (either extremely close or far), but the default height should work fine for ODS-1775 users desiring to zero between 50 and 200 meters.
The rear peep has windage adjustment and 4 diopters (aperture sizes) that range from CQB to 100 meters and beyond.
A hidden feature of peep sights is that the rear aperture doubles as a pinhole camera. This has the effect of magnifying and focusing objects at distance as if you were using a magnifier. This is the same effect that is used by folks with poor vision when they make a tiny hole in their fist to see through.
The peeps are 1913 / NATO compatible. They cowitness at 50% with an Aimpoint Micro (or clone) on an ARMS #31 mount. an MRO on a Midwest Industries cantilever mount will cowitness lower 1/3 with the PH-1.
The ODS PH-1s are made for us in North Idaho by our friend, machinist, and long range guru Ryan Possinger at Seven Cedars LLC. The body is 6061 Aluminum with a true Mil-Spec 1913 blasted and hardcoat anodization. The steel parts will be either nitrided or parkerized. All parts are made in 'Merica, making this a 100% US made product!
These are some finely machined and finished sights! I love the registration pins for the rail clamp. These are finely crafted and worth every penny.
The perfect addition to my 1775-
These sights are intuitive high quality purpose driven sights for the AK. Frankly, they are the best sights available for the AK.
