KEENE, NH – Samson Manufacturing announced today that they have been chosen to supply the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) with their flip-up, backup iron sights (BUIS) for IDF M4 Carbines.
Working closely with the IDF, the Samson sights passed rigorous environmental and field testing prior to being assigned IDF Part Number 2888-88124. Significant quantities of this rugged and dependable sight have been in IDF field trials for almost a year.
These sights differ slightly from Samson’s standard offerings, featuring a slotted mounting screw and modified picatinny clamp. Also, per IDF specifications, the A2-style aperture is mounted such that the small aperture presents when the sight is deployed.
Samson COO Tim Mulverhill confirmed the announcement, “We are extremely pleased to have been chosen to support the IDF with our back-up sights. The IDF operational tempo and physical environment is notoriously hard on small arms equipment. The Israelis thoroughly test their field gear accordingly, and I am pleased to say that Samson sights have met the challenge.”
All work will be completed at Samson’s facility in Keene, New Hampshire. Samson will be adding this IDF version to their regular product offerings as IDF 2888-88124. Interested customers can review the IDF Sight and other Samson products at SHOT Show, booth 20327, in Las Vegas from January 22-25, 2019.
