    Why not move the laser up front and the sight behind it?

  2. Robert hernandez on November 20, 2021 at 6:30 pm

    What Rails are you running?!

  3. Casey Phillips on November 20, 2021 at 6:31 pm

    Nice weapons… definitely badass… good information on the Set up and DD sights….

  4. mark brimmer on November 20, 2021 at 6:33 pm

    What handguard is that?

  7. Urmom1985 on November 20, 2021 at 6:41 pm

    So just curious- what did u get the sights for$??

  8. Dustin Gonzales on November 20, 2021 at 6:41 pm

    @kotaboy32tactical can you do a video about the practical application of putting a front flip sight towards the back of a rail? Like behind a laser I’ve been seeing this a lot and I feel like it’s not a great idea. I love your videos and they are very educational was hoping you could shed some light my mang!

  9. Joe House on November 20, 2021 at 6:41 pm

    What handguard is on that black rifle

  10. Scott Myatt on November 20, 2021 at 6:43 pm

    While all good firearm channels advise back up sights, Murphy personally instructed me to use only fixed DD Rock n Lock sight set with my red dots.
    I have the DD rock n lock set that started on my DDM$V5s with high end red dot.
    DD fixed sights moved to my PSA 300blk pistol (1/3 co witness with high end red dot) when I scoped my DD rifle, which now needed an mbus gen 2 folding sight set to cope with scope.
    Bought a 3rd AR, a 556 Geisselle pistol, and another high end red dot, and transferred folding mbus set to new pistol because low on funds.
    High end red dot failed at range, and was struck hard by fact I personally could not have popped up both mbus sights in time in a crisis under adrenaline dump, and I would have been a goner.
    So I owe thanks for the good advise of channels like Kotaboy32.
    But Murphy always has the final word.

    Ok, so no lie, this is the first time I’ve watched this video. I have the Daniel Defense iron sights, the same spider skull Spike’s lower, t-marked PSA upper, and I’m waiting on the UTG Pro quad rail and BCM Mod 3 grip to install today. Great minds think alike, eh Kotaboy? 😂🤣

  12. steven richards on November 20, 2021 at 6:44 pm

    Will those fit my Hi Point ?

  13. David S. on November 20, 2021 at 6:44 pm

    My DD rifle came with the DD backup rear sight and I can’t say enough good stuff. Really like it. I also have the LMT SOPMOD rear sight but prefer the DD. Much lighter and doesn’t take as much space.

  14. Sicario Megrella on November 20, 2021 at 6:44 pm

    What’s the rail?

  15. Nom Solo on November 20, 2021 at 6:45 pm

    Can the front sight post be adjusted with a spent casing?

  16. Yosef Martinez on November 20, 2021 at 6:48 pm

    Cujo was a Labrador 🐕 on a Movie where this beautiful dog is bitten by a 🐀 infected with rabies and this poor 🐕 became dangerous but thw family didn’t know what was going wrong with cujo on till some days after when the viruses of the rabies is a the cujos system

  17. bak eteng on November 20, 2021 at 6:50 pm

    What’s the height of that riser?

  18. Nicholas Reese on November 20, 2021 at 6:50 pm

    Love running fixed irons. No flip up bullshit.

  19. MAGA MAN on November 20, 2021 at 6:52 pm

    The reason for flat-head screws on things like this is because they fan be adjusted with just about anything. They also don’t fill with gunk like a hex head bolt will.

    Those sights are also giant and ugly, look extremely dated and will be in the way of your red dot. Quality folding sights would be much better.

  20. Justin Parker on November 20, 2021 at 6:54 pm

    What rail is that

  21. Iouri on November 20, 2021 at 6:55 pm

    Perst-4, OOO Zenith, Made in Russia. I’m surprised and happy that Russia makes and exports this.

  22. King EB on November 20, 2021 at 6:57 pm

    How did you get your front iron on the very front? Mine doesn’t allow me too?

  23. Jason Dowling on November 20, 2021 at 6:58 pm


  24. Zachary Hilmer on November 20, 2021 at 6:59 pm

    We had m16a2s in BCT, trust me as of 2020 we all remember adjusting that rear sight

  25. Travis McIntosh on November 20, 2021 at 7:02 pm

    Will the rear sight line up correctly with a regular A2 fixed front sight post? I’ve been thinking about getting one of these

  26. Ricky Pickles on November 20, 2021 at 7:05 pm

    troy micros are great…i just got some for my lpvo setup. sit under scopes nicely…lower cowitness but amazing backups. I also want to grab some DD irons. look great for a red dot build

  27. EgoleatherGoods nc on November 20, 2021 at 7:06 pm

    badass piece
    what length is you barrel and rail

  28. Ru2yaz on November 20, 2021 at 7:07 pm

    A non practical real fighting AR cluttered with look at my AR setup…

  29. Richie Schneider on November 20, 2021 at 7:08 pm

    A couple months ago I got a Vortex Spitfire 1x prism sight for my Bushmaster AR15 carbine. It was on sale for $170 and I love it so far. Since it has an etched glass reticle it works regardless of battery illumination, so I don’t use back up iron sights. I think I may have found a loop hole so that people don’t gripe that I need back up iron sights.

  30. jayonez 13 on November 20, 2021 at 7:08 pm

    That is a steel insert that they use.
    Similar to a helacoil.
    Best fixed sights on the market. Been running them for years on my rigs. With a 1/3 Cowitness T1 and T2.
    They always come with the rear aperture slammed all the way to the right. Adjust it back in line up the slash mark on the aperture to the slash mark on the rear sight housing.
    Always run your fixed rear sight furthest to the rear as possible and your front sight far out front as possible.
    Do not use your rear sight moved up to the second T2 notch.

  31. Blue Chevy on November 20, 2021 at 7:11 pm

    U ever sell any spare parts? Just accessories not lowers.Kinda new having a hard time finding good b/s/t groups

  32. Kris Swift on November 20, 2021 at 7:12 pm

    The best thing about flat head screws is the ability to remove and/or tighten them with damn near anything.

  33. Rynosauras X on November 20, 2021 at 7:13 pm

    -Alot of people namd their guns
    -Alot of cunts

  34. Kelltrad on November 20, 2021 at 7:13 pm

    I run these sights and they’re pretty solid. They don’t look as sexy as the scalarworks sights but they are also $100 less. Would recommend 100%

    The rail on that Khujo is mad dope! I really like it!

  37. AvocadoAtrocity on November 20, 2021 at 7:17 pm

    I’d flip that VFG.

  38. abc4781 on November 20, 2021 at 7:18 pm

    That’s a handsome rail.

  39. WesTurf Watch Videos on November 20, 2021 at 7:18 pm

    I’ve been looking to get the DD Irons as backups, I just want to be able to use a magnifier & the red dot to align with them properly.. Now that I see how they fit, im thinking to offset the DD iron sights instead🤫.. Personally I want to use all Daniel Defense accessories on my pistol to keep it all DD🕶..

  40. K. Moore Semper Fi on November 20, 2021 at 7:18 pm

    When I went through boot camp we used the A2 so god that I trained and qualified with irons and never had an ACOG issued to me

  41. joe segrist on November 20, 2021 at 7:20 pm


  42. Rising Awareness on November 20, 2021 at 7:21 pm

    Nice bootlicker logo on the lower receiver.

  43. nick knowles on November 20, 2021 at 7:21 pm

    Do you have the red dot bridging the upper and rail? That’s not good to do. Bring it back one t slot and the gap from sight wont be so great when you run the rear sight further back.

  44. The LynchMob on November 20, 2021 at 7:21 pm

    Love my DD Irons, my go to’s. You’d torque/twist the top rail before damaging these bad boys.

  45. MOS Battle Buddy on November 20, 2021 at 7:24 pm

    I’m running Daniel Defense irons and I love them but what sucks is I have a 3x magnifier for my red dot but I can’t run my read DD sight akd my magnifier. So I’m gonna have to run magpul flip up rear and DD from irons. I don’t like that lol my add doesn’t like mixing manufacturers! I’m thinking about running my DD irons cantered instead of putting the plastic magpul flip up on there again. Not a damn thing wrong with the plastic Magpul buis I just personally like the a Daniel Defense irons better. I know magpul makes metal flip ups but imo the more moving parts the more parts to fail. This is only my personal preference.

  46. Qwiv on November 20, 2021 at 7:24 pm

    Pretty much put something in front of you light. Good job.

  47. Meta Solo on November 20, 2021 at 7:24 pm

    Doing the opposite…zeroing with DD (nasty) and then adding the Holosun for bling.

  48. Kryptonite77F on November 20, 2021 at 7:25 pm

    I’ve personally grown to love the DD backup iron sights. I currently run the fixed front sight one two of my NOVESKE builds and a folding magpul rear sight. (Absolute Co-Witness) It’s a personal choice for running absolute vs lower 1/3. I’ prefer the lollipop sight picture so that became my setup. DD makes a good product and I stand behind this review. 👍🏽

  49. John Doe on November 20, 2021 at 7:26 pm

    No pov? Geez

  50. david candelaria on November 20, 2021 at 7:28 pm

    I just did this on mine so I have a red dot but basically I’ll be using iron sights all the time????
