Brownells has an interesting and exclusive new product from Battle Arms Development. The Architek Fixed Front Sight Clamp-On is a compact, lightweight clamp-on front sight for .750 diameter AR-15 barrels (can be attached on any part of the barrel that is between .735 and .750″ in diameter). The Architek Sight is machined from 7075-T6 aluminum and is skeletonized to reduce its weight to a scant 1.3 ounces.
This, almost AK-47 like, front sight tower creates some interesting possibilities for extending sight radius or even reducing weight on a Dissipator-ish AR-15 build. The front sight tower is thinner than a standard FSB and has the benefit of being fixed to the barrel instead of the handguard which can deflect from sling use, barricade contact, or other factors.

If you were to look at my AR-15s, you would see some common traits across most of them – like Battle Arms Development selectors. I’ve never really worried about the weight of them since ambidextrous safeties are intrinsically heavier than single-side safeties but it is nice to know that there is a lighter version of the BAD-ASS.
The BAD-ASS-LW (or Battle Arms Development – Ambidextrous Safety Selector – Light Weight) appears nearly identical to the original BAD-ASS but those looks conceal two weight reducing features. The first is that, unlike the original, the BAD-ASS-LW features aluminum levers instead of steel. Second, the steel core and aluminum levers have been subtly skeletonized to reduce weight. The result is a BAD-ASS that performs like you expect but weighs only .42 oz.
We’ve been following the development of Battle Arms Development’s .78 ounce Trijicon MRO mount for a while now and I am happy to report that it is now available. This mount is machined from 7075-T6 aluminum with a hard anodized finish. It provides an absolute cowitness and mounts via two cross bolts. It’s a lightweight but durable mount for a lightweight but durable optic.

Battle Arms Development has released a new image of the production prototype for their upcoming MRO mount. This mount, being a production prototype, should be fairly close to the actual production piece. The radically skeletonized design is extremely lightweight (just .78 oz including screws) but doesn’t skimp where it counts with plenty of rail grabber surface area and two cross-bolts.
