This is a very well designed and built back up sight. It tucks down flat and pops up when needed. I did not realize it should not be used on a gas block until after I opened the package and read the fine print. Looked at other online reviews and some said they have the potential of melting due to the heat generated. I ended up obtaining a metal LMT sight for the front. Other than that, it seems like a great item. Just not for my set up. Pros: Easy to install Cons: Can't be used on gasblocks

This is a sturdy, cost-effective front sight solution. Works with either the matching MBUS or MBUS pro rears. Sight post is upgradeable if desired with other standard A2 replacements. Mounting requires a slip-on fitting from the end of the rail. Remove the crossbolt, use a soft mallet (rubber or wood) to tap it into position, replace crossbolt and tighten. Adjust post height to zero. You may want to use a tiny amount of silicone grease at the sides of the catches. Note: DO NOT use MBUS on gas block rail mount...it will melt eventually. No issue on the handguard OVER the gas block however.

I've had the Magpul Mbus sights before on another rifle. I love the light weight and durable material they are made from. Magpul always puts out a great product. Easy to install, and easy to use. Once they are sited in, they are accurate no matter how hard you are on the rifle. Nice to have both front and rear sights out of the way while I'm using my Red Dot, and have them flip up at a moments notice to co witness with the red dot if I need to!!

These are great back up sights for the price. I have these on most of my AR-15s. I like that they are very rugged for polymer sights, and they are better than some of the metal back up sights I have used.

I purchased front and rear mbus sights for a for the best deal out their and it wasn’t even Black Friday optics planet always has specials on products that’s why I shop here if you don’t know about these sights you won’t regret purchasing them

These are the best back up sights I have ever used with the exception of Magpul MBus pro so I would tell anyone that you can’t find a better back up sight for the money and as long as you’re not going over average duty use these will be what you need them to be. Civilian use, rec use, light duty use and of course range use are ideal purposes for their design.

Functional for light use (range days/limited volume shooting and easy handling). Definite weight savings and decent asthetics but BUIS preferred for hash environments/critical applications. Easy to adjust, install and remove.

Ordered a set of these MBUS sights for a flattop AR. They are decent polymer construction, not military grade but adequate for normal usage. They mount securely. Sight picture is good, although the rear sight apertures are a little clunky to change. Upon zeroing found I had to bury the front post all the way to the bottom, and was still 3" lower than I prefer on target. These are not target grade sights, but adequate for CQB type shooting. If you want A2 style sights there are better choices, but for the money these are OK. Perfect for a budget AR build.

I have been looking for flip up sights to use with my Romeo Sig sight. I tried several others on my Daniel Defense rifle but most flip ups would still be in the way or were hard to flip up due to the set up. These MBUS sights fit perfectly and were out of the way when using my Romeo. Outstanding flip up sights that fit flawlessly on my AR platform.

These sights have a great fit and finish, they work well and look good too. I mounted these sights on my newest ar15 build to cowitness with my red dot, I really like how compact they are when they’re flipped down, they’re barely noticable and don’t take up much space.

I have had a previous set and purchased a new set through opticsplanet and the quality is still great. As I continue to buy and build more rifles I plan to use these as my backup sights. Opticsplanet shipping was quick and hassle-free. For a polymer site you can't get much better than this. I may end up checking out the m b u s Pro sites in the future.

Solid BUS. Features low-profile, not much wider than the rail. The fit on the rail was a bit snug. Took some wedging and a bit of trimming on the dovetail face. Lightweight with easy to operate flip-up flange.

So what I say about this isn't going to be anything new. I'm honestly not expecting to add anything or reveal some weird perspective that hasn't been thought of before about this or the rear MBUS. So why am I writing? Well, boredom mostly. Anyone looking to build their first AR, "Pistol" or whatever will likely be told to have backup sights on their rails. And why shouldn't they? It's a good practice to have them in case your optics take a dump or they don't want to shell out the extra cash. Or maybe they just want to get better with irons. Whatever the reason, shooters want backup sights and these are often where they turn to. And why shouldn't they? As these are made of polymer, they're very light, but they're also well-made so they're also very sturdy and as a result, they hold their zero very well. These are also pretty cheap, and not to drop names here but I have found Optics Planet to be the best place to get them. A lot of places sell these for around $40-50 with the set going for upwards of $80-90. I've found them on here for as little as $60. Some folks are concerned these would melt if mounted close to the gas block or something. While not unwarranted, I haven't had any issues with that happening. I've had one mounted almost on top of a gas block, a Superlative Arms adjustable piston block, and if anything slightly in front of it. The way the SA blocks are designed, they vent off excess gases, and carbon and heat as a result. I haven't put a thermometer and run... Read More...

High quality as you would expect from the magpul name. Easy to mount. Pop up feature great for backup use but stays out of the way for red dots and scopes. Highly recommend for anyone wanting back up iron sights in the event of dead battery or malfunctions of red dots

I bought front and rear Magpul BUIS for my IWI U.S. Tavor rifle. These sights are easy to install, very sturdy (even though mostly plastic) and accurate. The Tavor's built-in BUIS sit about 1/8" higher than the Magpul's though, and that little difference makes getting a cheek weld difficult. I'm keeping these, because they're great sights, but I'll be using the rifle's built in BUIS until I get a red-dot. Pros: Robust, good price Cons: Sits a little low for the Tavor's rail

I have two sets of these. They work very well and are easy mount and adjust. One of my front sights gets caught on rail and I have to manually pull it up. I still bought a second set knowing that could be an issue.

Purchased both Front and Rear Flip-up signs to mount on the Railing of my Windham Weaponry AR. Sights fit tight and work great. I purchased these from a popular sports store and then found them on Optics Planet sight $28.00 cheaper. Returned them and purchased same product for Optics Planet. Very pleased.

Excellent quality by magpul work great. Front sight is a little tricky to get on but still fairly easy to mount. Just pop the screw off and slide them on your rail and away you go. Only complaint i have is they are a little on the pricey side for the kind of sights you are getting.

Fast shipping, priced well, seem sturdy, easy to mount following the inclosed instructions, raise and lower easily. Can see the front sight through the Red Dot. Some others were less expensive by $20 for the front and rear sights but had terrible reviews, chose the Magpul based on Magpuls quality.

I bought both front and rear gen 2 magpul sights for my sons AR. Not only do they look badass, they were very affordable. Keeping our weapons simple but accurate is important. Zeroed in in a few minutes. We tore it up at the range with some pretty impressive groupings.would recommend magpul for anyone serious about great products at decent prices.

They were quite hard to slide onto the Pic-rail, but that means they'll never vibrate off. I suspect they shall perform wonderfully. Came with adjustment tools, so there's a plus. You can hit the thumb-press on both sides or one-side and they pop-up just the same.

These sights were easy to install with just a flat blade screw driver. Adjustment is made for elevation with a tool that came with the sights, this tool can also be used to install the sight. These were installed on a AR-10 as a back-up sight. I would recommend these to anyone.

They do just what they’re intended to do. Pop up when you need them, but folded down and out of the way when you don’t. Easy to adjust. The spring keeps them up while firing, you only know they slightly move if you watch it in slow-mo. Never had an issue even when using them as my primary sight on one of my rifles.

Come on Sig...no sights? I ordered these pop ups. Love them. Got them in FDE to match my Virtus pistol in 300BLK. Match great. Superb mounting, no wiggle. Great locking mechanism. The wingage was a bit confusing. If you follow the arrow for Right it will move th point of impact to the Left?? Great sights with small and large peep holes.

These sights are very nice and easy to install as well as adjust. I’d recommend these to anyone looking for solid back up sights or even someone who wanted to use these as the main sighting system.

Great back up sight, easy to mount,install and zero. Solid construction they appear to be very tough even though they're polymer. Sights are very lite and also have a low profile, which will allow mounting of a magnifier over the rear sight without interference.

I figured the Magpul MBUS flip-up sights were good. Magpul's been selling thousands of them. Advertising can't account for all those being sold. Fan boys could account for few hundred, sure. But to sell as many as they have requires two things, quality and dependability. Me? I didn't care how good they were. To me, they were overpriced. Optics changed that with it's great discount sales. DEFINITELY worth the wait. I now have multiple sets of these Magpul MBUS sights. AND I will buy again in the future.

I Emailed OP for a recommendation as to folding back up sights for less than $100 on a long Picatinny rail that is Not mounted on an AR. Their suggestion was great.

These sights are light and tough. They are some of the best value on the market. There are Troy and Magpul Pro sights that are more solid, but they cost twice as much. I have these Magpul sights on multiple AR-15s and AR-10, from 5.56, 300 BLK, 6.8 SPC, and .308. They have never failed me in the woods or at the range.

Excellent front sight, light and tough, very easy to deploy and return to the down position. I purchased the front/rear sight kit and being made of impact resistant polymer, I was concerned about their ruggedness, but they are very tough and well made.

Looking for some iron sights! Look no more these will last a lifetime! When your optic goes dead you can flip these up on a hurry and continue shooting away. They hold zero regardless of what you do! Easy to install and easy to take off if wanted. Magpul is the best and you get the best

Everyone knows the reputation of magpul, and its great. that’s why almost everyone goes to get the magpul mbus sights. when i installed the mbus front sight on my gas block, the sight wouldn’t stay in the down position, due to my magpul carbine handguard. i had to install the sight backwards for it to work, so when it’s down it lays towards the muzzle instead of towards the stock. of course this doesn’t impede the product from working, hence the five stars. if someone is considering the mbus sights, running a rail level gas block, with a magpul or similar handguard, this product may not function as expected.

I recently purchased a Freedom Ordnance FX-9 AR Pistol and I had an exsisting Magpul rear Mbus polymer sight so I naturally bought the matching Mbus front sight for my AR Pistol. As is the norm with Magpul accessories the fit and finish of these sights is second to none in the industry ..... The one improvement I would make is to paint the front post of the sight a neon color so it’s easier to pick it up in most lighting situations.....I personally have painted the front sight post of my Colt M4 and the front sight of my new AR9 Pistol with bright orange sparkle nail polish. In daylight the orange pops .... in lower light it still twice as easy to acquire a good sight picture

Put it on my AR15 and it's very comfortable. I'm used to vertical foregrips, however wanted to try this out and I have to say I am very impressed. It's small, doesn't take up much space on the lower rail and is comfortable. I'm able to hold this for hours and not feel a thing.

I was thoroughly impressed with the build quality of these sights. The adjustments were a little hard to understand but I will tag that one to "user error". Once I understood how they adjusted it was very simple to zero and they have held true since.

Perfect fit and finish on this sight. Great addition to my AR15 to match my rear Magpul filp up sight. Running this sight on a UTG Super Slim hand rail and it looks fantastic and zeroed on target very easy.

If you're not using these for iron sights, you're using the wrong sights. They flip down and are low profile, they come in any color you want, they stay dead zero center, and they're affordable. Easy to adjust and are build to last. People talk about possibly breaking due to them being plastic, but they're tough.

This is an great front sight for your rifle. The sight automatically flips up with just a small amount of pressure on the release tabs. I got this in the grey color an it looks AWESOME on my rifle! If you are looking for a front sight or replacing an already existing front sight then you can't go wrong with the Mapul MBUS Front Flip-Up sight.

Simple and easy to use pop up sights. They are plastic but decent quality. Especially if your looking for backup sights and not going into actual battle. I have them mounted on all my rifles. If you plan on dragging your gun through the woods go with steel but this does the trick for target shooting or simple hunts.

Items arrived in brand new condition as stated . 2 nd time ordering I’m not to thrilled with the amount of time it takes to ship items that are in stock . I’ve ordered other items from other retailers after placing order with opticplanet and I’ve received them before I’ve even gotten a tracking number from optic planet . I get that there’s a lockdown but other retailers are making it happen quickly. If your company moved a bit faster I would definitely buy all my parts from your company. Company and products are 6 stars , shipping 1 star sorry .

The Magpul MBUS front Sight is good enough to meet my basic requirement. The post is equivalent to the front iron post of a standard United States Army M4. The body of the sight however is a little to wide for my taste when aiming at a targets at a long distance (200m+). I moved this sight from my long gun to my SBR. Perfect.

Like I said, its Magpul; aka it works, its durable, its a good price, and well, it's Magpul! lol. If you need a durable front sight and don't need anything super fancy/expensive, this is it. I needed to remove my A2 Front Sight post so I could put on a free float handguard and wanted a set of BUIS; I already had the MBUS BUIS rear, so getting the front was the logical choice. Was easy to zero and love the low-profile look.

I do recommend these sights for about anyone that's on a value build. I laseriously bore sighted at 40' in my house, and at 100 yds I was shooting less than 2.5" off hand. I have bought 14 sets and would recommend them to anyone.

Very sturdy front to match the Magpul MBUS rear aperture sight. The spring mechanism works very positively and reliably. I was able keep shots at 100 yards in three inch groups off sand bag rests. This sight is mounted on a ten and a half inch AR pistol upper. It will be used until I decide which red dot sight to mount. Magpul quality as always.

I got the MBUS front and back flip up sights Gen 2 as part of an AR 10 build and I am pleased with the product overall. They are lightweight, though aluminum might be about the same weight, and appear very well made. I also like the flip up feature as most of the time I will keep these in the laid down position... they are just a back up for if the SHTF and my scope goes out. My only cons with the product is that they are almost all plastic which gives me concern about ruggedness, though I am not crawling through the woods with my rifle, and they are a bit bulky. The cost for the product, when considering it is mostly molded plastic, is a bit high too, but I can't believe how much the full metal sights cost...there is IMHO no reason that a single front or back sight made out of aluminum should cost over 100 dollars, so this Magpul MBUS becomes a better deal unless you are using your standard sights as the primary targeting mechanism.

There is a reason that everyone looking for flip up sights always compares them to mbus. Why buy sights that just copy magpul to try and be as good. Just buy the real thing. The only thing I would say is that if you have the money to go with the pro flip ups because they are metal and not polymer.

I have front & rear MBUS on just about every firearm I own (or at least every one that has a rail), regardless of whether it has a scope, red dot or laser attached. You never know when your batteries will go dead, your alignment will go out of whack, or your glass breaks. In those instances, having a set of MBUS as your backup is smart. Moreover, as I get past the "Lego" phase of AR ownership, I'm starting to feel as though Less Is More, and taking some of the "stuff" off the rails. Less weight, less to worry about, less to fuss on. A good set of MBUS sights makes for a good day of shooting (instead of tinkering). I wish everything was made like Magpul.

I just finished installing a new free floted handguard on my AR-15. I cut down the front sight to make a low profile gas block, but I still wanted to have it on sights available. This Magpul folding front sight was exactly what I was looking for. Minor modification was needed to clear the handguard, but easily accomplished with hand tools.

Best sight you can buy, especially considering the price. Better quality for the money compared to $100 plus Troy or Samson sights. Push button flip up functions perfectly, sighting in is a breeze.

The Magpul MBUS front flip up sight is an excellent addition for an M4 platform. The sight is easy to install and easy to zero as Magpul includes a sight adjustment tool with the from sight.

They're sturdy enough to trust them. I installed them while building the rifle. I only intended to function test the rifle, but perhaps by chance the sights out of the box were so close, I was actually able to enjoy a little target shooting even though I have not had an opportunity to properly sight them in from a rest.

These sights are tight on my gun rail, I had to tap them on with a small hammer. I have the new Colt CCR AR-16, CBA16H. Sights are easy to adjust and sighted in well. The indoor range I was at only has a 25yds target for rifles. The sights work well and I was able to get 4" groups with my bad eyesight. The rear sights were on back order and I had to wait about 3 weeks to receive them. Sights are a little pricey but, I happy.

These sights are a proven performer. We had them on several weapons when on active duty and they are durable and hold consistency. The adjustments are the same as have been on the A2 and later M16 and M4 models. I would c recommend these as a back up set or as a primary set on a flat top.

These sights are all you need in a pair of back-up sights. Even being made of polymer they are very durable and also being spring loaded makes things quicker if you happen to get in a jam with your main optic going out. Almost 10 out of 10 times with Magpul you can't go wrong.

These are great back up "iron" sights (polymer). Very light weight. The color options you see online are true to what you get in the mail. My one "Con" is that they are kinda wide/bulky. Something to keep in mind if you use or plan on using a offset light mount near the front of your rail.

I purchased a used rifle that had a genuine Magpul MBUS rear sight and a knock-off Magpul front sight. I did not know the front sight was a knock-off until it failed. The knock-off front sight broke in two pieces pretty quickly. I ordered this genuine Magpul MBUS front sight from Optics Planet and it is a great sight for the money. When comparing it to the knock-off front sight I had, there is a huge difference in quality. I highly recommend this sight.

I have trusted Magpul for most of my AR needs. This isn't any different for the mBus sights. Because they're back up and not primary use, I don't see the need to spend double the money for iron sights. 99% of us use red dots as our primary sight to target,but it is imperative to have back up sights. I have these mBus sights on all my AR rifles, SBRs and pistols. I haven never had the need ti use them,but I trust them enough to be durable and functional when called upon. These are made very sturdy and easy to install. The spring tension is good and the pop up levers work well. I recommend these for those looking for the best and most reliable backup sights on the market.

Easy to put on, easy to adjust. It's amazing. These are light, robust BUIS. I highly suggest these. These are also very cheap and amazing to use. Was able to zero my rifle quickly with these attached. Can be operated with one hand, making it nice as you can have one hand on the rifle. The only downside is the front sight can sometimes stick. Other than that they are perfect.

Was thinking about getting the pro sights but cost for them was a bit more than these MBUS sights. I used these MBUS sights on two recent builds and they work great, and were on sale. I've read some reviews that complain they don't lock in place. I think this is a plus as if they snag on equipment they will hinge and release the snag and pop back into place.

This is the 5th set I own. Magpul sights are durable, easily activated and co-witness very well with EOTech holographic sites. Never had a problem holding zero with these sights. I had to resort to these sights during training with a VTAC barricade when my EOTech battery died during a VTAC 9 hole drill. Shooting from the bottom slot on the ground, rifle on its side, the sights were easy to flip up allowing me to strike steel at 100 yards. Yes the instructor had us shooting steel from the ground slot at 100 yards.

These sights mount easily and do not interfere with an Elcan Spector on 4X while flipped down. You can see the sight on 1X setting but you can even see the barrel on the 1X setting so not to big of a deal there. While flipped up you can co-witness the sights through the optic on 1X if so desired. I'd imagine you could probably use the co-witness function through a red dot or if your battery failed ex. I'm happy with the sights, construction seems quite sturdy. I have read that although these sights are plastic they are tougher than most of the flip up metal options. Bottom line I would recommend these sights, I don't plan to use them a whole lot as I do have an optic mounted on this particular rifle, I just like to have sights in case I remove the optic in the future.

This sight works perfectly on on a front rail that is the same height as the back rail. Although I haven't given it the "hammer" test, it appears to be constructed with a very substantial high grade of plastic. It works thru the optics of my EO-tech reflex sight. Much easier than using offset sights.

I bought this item just for what its intended for, as a "Back-up" sight. I couldn't justify spending around $100 for some of the other metal ones from well established manufacturers. In saying that, I could not be more happy with this sight!! It is very durable for being made of polymer. The quality is amazing as most Magpul products and it fits on my rail perfectly. I got exactly what I needed with this sight for half the price of others. Excellent purchase!!

N then I went to the Range n ask the guy to help me set them, because all this shooting stuff is New to me. I go to Delaware Valley Sports Center. Them guys are nice n know their business. One of there people came in the Range n set the sites up for me. N I was shooting in no time. Great business, Gun Range, Gun Shop n nice people.

There's nothing fancy about it, but it's very functional and affordably priced. Not as low-profile as some of the more expensive options, but still looks nice. The FDE option especially looks great as an accent color if that's your thing. Pretty much the standard back-up sight.

I’ve purchased a few backup sights for various AR builds and it seems the Magpul set beats the rest with a balance of effectiveness, weight and price. Optics planet has the best deal so I purchased several for each rifle type. They don’t take up much space. They withstand the abuses of heat, rain and hard knocks. I have not tested them in below-zero weather yet so I can’t give it five stars yet. Worth it, even if you are happy with your main optic it is good to have a back up.

This sight is great and is easy to install. Durable and affordable. Being used as a backup sight for my MRO Patrol. It holds zero and is easy to sight in. Highly recommend if you are looking for a backup.

I like these back-up sights and recommend them. They have improved my aim from the original sights that came with the gun. The springs for the flip-up are strong and snap open nicely. The price is for budget buyers.

Very easy to install. Easy to operate. There were no issues with the product. No issues with installation. They are simple to adjust. They fit on the rails nice and tight. I would recommend it for anyone.

These mbus sights are perfect and exactly what I needed. The flip up mechanism will need a little breaking in but aside from that I don’t have anything bad to say about them. I will definitely order for my next build.

Sight works great as a back up or primary one. Installed it on my AR-10 and worked perfectly after it's first day at the range. Love the way it flips up for fast use when needed but lays flat against the rail for mobility when using my scope. Always excellent service from Opticsplanet.

I like the Magpul MBUS front sight because it functions flawlessly and is very economical. Its design is efficient and its size is not too large. I prefer the non-metallic material because of its elasticity.

Took it out to the rifle range and with the provided tool we made some quick, easy adjustments to zero in on target. Also easy to mount and flip-up feels sturdy. Optics customer service was helpful when I needed to cancel out of stock part but still honored free shipping .

Easy to install and stayed tight on the rail After 1000's of rounds. It was easy to adjust and held zero. Used it on my slr rail with a flip up rear sight. I need to write more for this review to be long enough. I like this sight.

Great product, Magpul does it again. Very easy to install, looks great and works perfectly. Could not be happier. If you want a flip up sight this is the one you want. Works right out of the box. Did not even have to sight it in. Had groupings of a quarter at 150 yrs

Fit and functioned flawlessly. Magpul doesn't make any bad product. A quality purchase from optics planet, will definitely be buying another set for my next AR build. This was my first purchase from optics planet but it won't be the last. Easy checkout and fast shipping!

For back-up sights that you do NOT need to take a loan for, these are a GREAT deal. Easy to deploy when needed and tuck out of the way when they are not. Optics Planet had the best price by far when I went to look for a new set of back-up sights. As they say in the Business world, it's a Win-Win!

Optics planet is my go to for ordering all of my shooting and optics needs. Just wish that the shipping speed was a little faster. But I'm a pleased buyer. Thank you

Love this flip up sight! Looks, feels and works great in the field. Flip up mechanism is also very easy to use with gloves on. The color options are fantastic. Highly recommend them even as back up manual sights to other optics options. My third pair purchase so far!

This G2 sights are exactly what you would expect from Magpul. Sturdy and reliable!! Cant go wrong with these. I have these as Back up sights on three different platforms. They hold zero and are low profile when folded down. Dont hesitate to get these for back up sights!

Nice product at a good price. Magpul makes good quality stuff and at OpticsPlanet its a nice price. It showed up quicker than expected. There is nothing else to write. If you are looking for this item you probably already know everything you want to know about it.

I have used mbus sights for multiple builds. The polymer is durable and high quality. And the snap-up function works great. Only nit-picks are that they can spring up with a light touch when handling. Also they aren't as streamlined as a steel sight. But great sight for the money. Way better than the imported amazon junk.

This exactly what I was looking for. Quick and easy to install. It came in the mail as fast as they said and was impressed with the whole experience from looking for the product to checkout. Would buy here again.

I purchased these for my stag arms m4 and they work perfectly, easy to install and push button flip up. Best sights for the price and they cowitness perfectly with my vortex red dot sight. If you need a pair of backup sights I can not recommend these enough. These are my second pair of magpul backup sights and definitely won’t by my last.

I purchased these front sights to compliment the Micro Roni Gen 3 Stabilizer version I purchased on Optics Planet. They were of equal or better quality of the sights offered by CAA, and the set price for front and rear sights through Optics Planet was cheaper as well. They are back ups to a Bushnell TRS-25 RDS, mounted to a UTG .83" medium riser. The co-witness is great, and the function of the flip up sight is secure. Best part of MAGPUL BUIS is that they are durable enough for the Micro Roni, and they were easy to adjust for elevation. Even comes with front post adjustment tool, which isn't the best but gets the job done.

I am glad that i was able to purcahse these as a package. the sights easily slid onto my rail and was able to tourque them down with the supplied allen key. Once on i had to get out to the range to sight them in. happy with the quick delivery as well.

Great front sight. Just like the rear sight very easy to put on and sight in. Even comes with the adjustment tool.Fits perfectly on my rifle. Love the look and they are so lightweight. Flips up very easy with just a press of your finger and just press down when your done. Highly recommend.

If you haven’t been told by now? Well here you go. Magpul knows their stuff, and you always need basic irons on your weapons. Those nice 3-4 digit dots are tacticool, but their batteries don’t last forever.

Excellent sights for this price range! I purchased these after unfortunately buying counterfeit MBUS sights of ebay...BEWARE of counterfeits! These original sights are night and day different from the fake ones I had. Definitely built to last. Only purchase from a reputable dealer!

Buy the set out of the gate. Simple installation and solid functioning. Front Back set is very intuitive and functions flawlessly. Well worth the price. Consider ordering off color add ons to add a bit more style to your AR.

Wanted these to backup a battery operated scope, but out of the way when utilizing other, a little spendy and don't order from here if you need it immediately, easy ordering with a very broad product selection

Great backup sights.... I wanted metal sights MBus pro or Troys but them not having the flip up option made this a winner not the mention the price point so choose wisely................................

Put these on my AR pistol. They're nothing fancy but they're durable and they work. They nice and lightweigh. A little on the bulky side but they don't take up too much rail space. For what youre paying they're pretty solid
