Rear sights series 8000

The new standard

The new rear sights series 8000 was developed and produced according to the highest quality standards. The use of stainless steel makes the rear sight weatherproof. Thanks to a comprehensive range of accessories, the rear sight is suitable for biathlon as well as for sport small bore- and air rifles. Furthermore, this rear sight can also be used for sport big bore caliber- and crossbow disciplines. The large adjustment range makes this rear sight a flexible all-rounder and, due to the fixed clicks detent, it is extremely safe to adjust, whether during transport or at the competition. The novel design of this rear sight prevents pressure pain in the back area during biathlon use, while the biathlon rifle is worn on the back. Numerous helpful and innovative details combined in a high-quality overall package.
