Does anyone know if the standard rail-attached iron sights from the video game Battlefield 3 are based off real iron sights? I really like the way the sight picture looks in-game, and I was hoping someone would know the make. Here's some reference:
Also, I'm not positive this is the right section to post this, but since it is a question regarding real things as opposed to just the video game, I think it fits better here than in the "off-topic" thread.

I thought it was a URX too, but other guns use the same sights as well, it's just a flip up front and rear sight from what I gather. I just used this picture because it showed the entire front sight instead of just the post.
My guess would be it's a generic sight setup manufactured by the games art department.
Since the gun you're looking at is an MK11 Mod 0 which the game designates as a "sniper rifle." my guess is that the developer just put a generic iron sights set in as an option.
Reading a bit more online it looks like people are saying that a lot of the in-game weapons share this sight setup in cases where the manufacturer doesn't provide iron sights with the rifle in real life.
