Optics & Sights
The PX4 Storm from Advantage Tactical features the company’s newest sight system – the Advantage Tactical Dark Diamond Sight (ATDDS). The ATDDS is the only iron sight system in which an illuminated front sight alone, with the benefit of being able to see the rear sight, will allow for accuracy in the dark. The rear sight obscures portions of the front sight, creating a diamond pattern. See the diamond, and you’re aligned and on target. The ATDDS sports the largest front sight in the industry; the diamond point adds precision. Want perfection? Get a diamond. The Dark Diamond Sight from Advantage Tactical.
