Scalarworks PEAK/Fixed Iron Sights Larry Vickers

"After using their optic mounts, I approached Scalarworks about making a set of fixed iron sights; what they came up with has exceeded my expectations. I'm now running Scalarworks iron sights and Aimpoint Micro mounts on my BCM carbine in all of my training classes. Scalarworks Leap Mounts and Peak Sights are the current state of the art."

From Peep to Post

In making the Peak Sights we left no stone unturned and few parts untouched.

Scalarworks PEAK/Fixed Iron Sights CNC machined

Every major component is custom designed with meaningful improvements to function, and precision CNC machined to the highest standards of fit & finish.

Right Radius

Peak Sights are designed around a modern 15" sight radius. While carbine length rifles have become the norm, most fixed iron sights still use components designed for the M16A2's 20" sight radius.

Scalarworks PEAK/Fixed Iron Sights adjustment

Peak Sights have manually adjustable elevation (front) and windage (rear): Both with a refined 0.5MOA/click, which matches most Red Dot sights'.

Scalarworks PEAK/Fixed Iron Sights post

The Peak sight post is CNC machined to the correct width for a 15" sight radius, non-rotating for finer adjustment, and flat faced to eliminate highlight bias.

Corrective Vision

The human eye intuitively centers objects within a bright aperture.

Scalarworks PEAK/Fixed Iron Sights peep

Peak Sights have precision CNC milled apertures that are flat toward the shooter, so they won't create highlight bias.

Scalarworks PEAK/Fixed Iron Sights peep

Stock A2 peep apertures are cast and have a scallop facing the shooter that can generate a misleading highlight.

Scalarworks PEAK/Fixed Iron Sights lightweight


Meticulously machined to be the lightest fixed iron sights in existence, without compromising an ounce of strength.

    Love my fixed front with a flip-up rear. The lightweight PEAK keeps the overall weight at the front of the rifle down while still providing an awesome reference point for red dots.

    I shoot a lot of irons (BCM KMR-A 14.5). You won’t find a better, lighter or easier to use set of AR sights. This are the best available.

    I was building an ultra light all metal AR (V Seven Weapon Systems) that has to cross state lines almost daily, so no SBR. It was designed for quick deployment that has to work, so irons as a fixed cowitness was mandatory in case a red dot battery is dead. These sights kept my light weight rifle on point and the build quality/engineering are fantastic. The fact they were designed for a 15”radius keeps the iron relevant for my 14.5 build (16” + pinned) and still allowed me to put a light in front of the front sight (just like Larry Vickers did). I finished the build with an absolute co-witness Aimpoint CompM5 attached to Scalarworks LEAP/MICRO. Thanks to Scalarworks obsession to detail and hyper weight saving engineering, all of which sacrifice nothing my rifle is perfection to me. I will be adding these sights to other rifles in short order.

    The presentation and swag alone holds me accountable to take time and review this product. Out-freakin-standing quality and aesthetics, but what drove me to these sights was that I heard that the fixed read sight is “essentially” invisible when running your reflex red dot. Nothing I dislike more is “busy fixed rear sights” that obscure 80% of my window. Great job to the team at Scalarworks for a product I actually feel proud to own.

    These sights are the best you can get, period. Plus the customer service was outstanding , answered all my questions. After my questions were answered I had no doubts and immediately ordered, received the sights yesterday and I am very satisfied. Of course they go perfectly with my Scalarworks Aimpoint Comp4 bundle what else could I say but they are perfect. Get yours now, do it!

    Scalarworks has outstanding customer service, there was an issue with my order and I emailed them after business hours. I immediately recieved a response and the issue was resolved. The sights are truly the worlds finest fixed iron sights, the quality and craftsmanship is outstanding. The sights fit securely and firmly to a pic rail and the sight picture is outstanding. If you are wondering if the sights are worth the price I say YES. Once you have them in your hands or on your rifle you can see the time and dedication Scalarworks put into designing these sights. I would highly recommend these sights to anyone looking for the best on the market 10/10.

    Just received my sights in yesterday afternoon. I am very pleased with them. Here is what I especially liked about the On Point Sights. First off, after just taking them out of the package I noticed how light they were. Second, after visually inspecting them, I determined the fit and finish was stellar. I did not see a bunch of laser engravings of logos, or instructions that appear on other brands. After mounting the sights to my PDW SBR, I was pleased as to how easy they were to mount. The sight picture was easy to acquire and familiar. The elevation and windage adjustments are easy and tool free. About the only thing that was not to my liking was the peep sight was a little too easy to toggle forward and backward. I feel that should be a little tighter, but definitely not a deal killer. The price is competitive with the other major brands. I am using these iron sights on an AR PDW SBR that I built with no red dot sight to co-witness. This rifle is strictly an open sight rifle. This is the third set of sights I have purchased for this build and I believe I have found the solution for my rifle. I would highly reccomend these sights any day of the week and twice on Sunday.

      Current shipping units have a detent spring that is twice as stiff as before to make the peep toggle much more sturdy.
