The bolt carrier group (BCG) is the beating heart of an AR. Like our own heart, it is not only critical to making things function, but it is also put under significant stress to accomplish that. Sure there are many parts of an AR that are critical, most of them in fact. But the BCG is the workhorse – feeding rounds, firing rounds, and extracting rounds.
I first came across the Blitzkrieg Components AR-15 Chevron Front Sight Post in the same place I think many of us do when discovering new and interesting products for shooting – Facebook. Up popped an image in my feed with a close-up shot of a front sight post unlike any I’d seen before. My experience with front sight posts on ARs was limited to just that, a post. You looked through your peep sight on your rear iron sight and there was a plain, black post waiting for you down at the other end for your aiming needs.
