VST-1 : Clamp-on With QD Socket
Vltor Sight Tower (VST)
The VST folding front sight and gas block is an all-steel, flip-up design, with a spring loaded dual-plunger detent. There is no lock. If hit, the sight will fold down, rather than damage a locking mechanism. It incorporates a QD sling swivel cup mount, and uses an AK front sight post.
Despite the VST-1's solid construction, it only weighs about a half of an ounce more than a standard A2 front sight tower.
