purchased this and the rear sight through amazon. both sights came in oe magpul bags however i could immediately tell the front wasnt a real magpul sight but a airsoft copy. it was cheap plastic and cracked. amazon is really good about this sort of thing and refunded it right away and i got a replacement. the real one has a number of metal features as well as a handy platic sight key for making adjustments. make sure if you get these you get a real one and not a toy. an indicator is the mount screw, it should be a standard slotted screw drive head bolt. the fake had a hex head bolt. also the spring loaded lock was plastic on the fake and metal on the o.e.

I have this sight mounted on a Daniel Defense M4 Carbine. The rifle didn't come with sights, so I also have a matching Magpul Mbus Rear Flip Sight to go with it. They appear to be very tough even though they're polymer. They weigh next to nothing, and are quick and easy to mount and zero. I shot 2.5" 5 round groups at 50 yards on a sight-in target using a bench rest and these sights. Plenty accurate if the battery dies in the red dot. The low profile allows mounting of a magnifier over the rear sight without interference.

Trimmed a tiny bit of remnant from the casting and it mounted free and easy. Looks great on my Windham SRC! The spring tension is perfect. Snaps up firmly and quickly, but has enough give so it won't snag if you hit something with it while moving forward. Locks back leaving a very low profile.

It co-witnesses well with the Ultimate Arms Gear Tactical 4 Reticle red dot sight I got to try out on the rifle. Don't worry about it melting on your gas block unless you plan on slide/bump firing like 10 mags through one after another.

I had the MBUS sights zeroed in fewer than 20 rounds. This is a great sight and I can't imagine why anybody would pay 2-3 times as much for something as simple as a front sight. If you're comparing it with something else, buy the Magpul.

It's Magpul! Very well made product, flips up strong and clean. Also has a large range for adjustments. My rear sight is higher than my front sight so I had to make major corrections. This sight also comes with a small tool for turning the adjustment pin. Very handy.

I was hesitant to purchase this sight and wanted to go with iron sights. Installed it and found it to be perfect for a co-witness with my red dot... Its lighter than the iron sights and seems to be very strong. It's quick release makes it better than the iron sights, one click and pop its up and ready to rock.... Also its way lighter and very easy to install!!!

It's a nice, lightweight, and cheap (does not cost a lot, not a poorly made product). The spring action on the sight is fantastic and it positively clicks down to lock in place. I've been warned by a former marine buddy of mine that the MBUS sights are cheap (poorly made) and won't last a month before they will fall off of my rifle. I don't feel like they would fall off what so ever. These things are on there TIGHT. On top of that I've seen several drop test reviews of other sights, which are made out of aluminum and steel, and these, which are made out of polymer, and these beat out the steel / aluminum sights hands down for drop test toughness.

If I had the option I would buy these again in a heartbeat.

exactly what they were designed for, this front sight is solid polymer and flips down for a low profile. They are perfect for back up sights and thats what i use them for. I have a 1-4x scope on my AR and was looking for inexpensive but high quality BUS, and these magpuls delivered. As long as you dont mount these to a gas block, your good to go. MAKE sure you get the real magpul (which these are) and not the pts versions if you want BUS that are durable and reliable. Btw this font sight does come with an adjustment tool.

I have several Magpul products that I am happy with and this item did not disappoint. Great quality at a fair price, easy to install and get sighted in, looks great, and seems to be built for the long haul. Flips up easily and with authority, I like it.
