Vltor VST-1C Sight Tower, Clamp-on

  • The VST folding front sight and gas block is an all-steel, flip-up design, with spring loaded detents. There is no lock so if the sight gets hit, the sight will fold down rather than damage a locking mechanism. The VST-1 series incorporates a QD sling swivel cup mount while the VST-2 does not.  All models use an AK47/AKM/AK74 front sight post. This allows the user adjust the sight, for elevation, with the use of a simple AK cleaning kit.
  • Despite the VST's solid construction, it actually weighs less than a standard A2 front sight tower. The VST is currently available in cross-bolt clamp design, with and without QD-sling swivel mount and a taper-pin version (gunsmith installed) is currently available with and without QD-sling swivel mount.

Installation note:The installation of the VST should only be performed by a qualified gunsmith and/or certified armorer.

The clamping system has been carefully designed to provide an unparalleled hold when installed properly.  During testing, the VST-1 withstood over 100 ft/lbs of rotational torque and is stronger than the barrels receiver indexing pin.
 

Each kit contains the front sight assembly and sight adjustment tool.
