Press Release, Ramat-Hasharon, 28 February 2024: IWI – Israel Weapon Industries – a member of the SK Group (founded by Mr. Samy Katsav), and a global leader in the production of combat-proven small arms for military, police, law enforcement agencies, and governmental entities around the world, has unveiled its new Micro Folding Battle Sight.

IWI’s MFBS represents a unique design which addresses the challenge of combining co-witness back up iron sights with higher reflex sights alongside various accessories on the Picatinny rail. It is specifically developed to conserve the valuable space on the rail without compromising the availability of back-up sights, thus ensuring weapon reliability and functionality whenever needed and under any environmental conditions.

The micro folding back up sight offers exceptional co-witness capabilities while taking up minimal space on any Picatinny rail. The MFBS sights can be lifted and folded when needed, in line with operational needs, and have a narrow profile in relation to the width of the Picatinny rail. They can be adapted to a range of high reflex sights and accompanying tall means, with a low cross section in the folded position. As such, the sights do not interfere with the other means placed on the weapon.

Designed to seamlessly complement most well-known sights on the market, the new compact sight folds backwards, ensuring maximum rail space without hindering the use of the AR charging handle. The Micro Folding Battle Sights offer ultimate versatility. They can be adjusted with a simple tool, which makes field modifications easy, and are offered with or without tritium inserts. The front sight is offered in a narrow profile for sights without tritium inserts. The rear sight is designed with a quick modification between small and large apertures. The MFBS are designed for the field and meet both NATO and MIL-STD drop tests.

Ronen Hamudot, Executive VP Marketing and Sales of the SK Group said: “IWI developed the MFBS after identifying the need for detachable, durable sights, that arose from the field. Introducing the MFBS to the market represents our commitment to clients to provide comprehensive solutions, and to expanding our offering”.
