Magpul Gen 2 MBUS Front Back-Up Sight - MAG247

 

Model: MBUS – Front Gen 2 
Weight, w/ hardware: 1.2 oz. 
Height above rail, stowed: ~ 0.51 in. 
Length, stowed: 2.6 in. 
Length, deployed: 1.5 in.

The MBUS (Magpul® Back-Up Sight) is a low-cost, color injection molded, folding back-up sight. The MBUS Front Sight is adjustable for elevation and fits most 1913 Picatinny-railed hand guards, but is specifically tailored to the AR15/M16 platform.

Features:

•Impact resistant polymer construction provides light weight and resists operational abuse

•Spring-loaded flip up sight easily activated from either side or by pressing the top

•Detent and spring pressure keeps sight erect but allows for unobstructed folding under impact, etc.

•Clamps to most any MIL-STD-1913 Picatinny/STANAG 4694 railed hand guard and provides the same height-over-bore as standard A2 irons

•Protective wings shield the spring-locking A2 front sight post

•Elevation adjustment tool included, but most aftermarket A2 front sight adjustment tools may be used as well

NOTE: Cannot be mounted to a railed gas block due to excess heat issues. Front MBUS must be mounted to a railed fore end on the same plane as the receiver rail. Because of this the sight is also not compatible with MOE Hand Guards.

Heat a concern with a plastic sight?
Daryl R on Oct 13, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Will not be an issue for rear sight or free float rail mounted front sight, however front sight will warp/melt if mounted on gasblock.
will this work on an Anderson AR 15 5.56 Rifle With 16" Barrel AM15-BR as purchased?
Dave T on Dec 4, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The AM15-BR only has a gas block rail to mount the optic and I wouldn't put a polymer sight on it since it will likely melt. This set works best on a free float handguard.
Are these able to be mounted on the side as backup sights?
Frank G on Dec 3, 2018
BEST ANSWER: They could be. But one would have to get angled based. I'm using them as primaries at the moment.

C A B on Aug 3, 2018
BEST ANSWER: These will fit any standard 1913 rail.
If I were to get these in another color (like fde), would dying them affect the flipping mechanism?
Jocular on Sep 26, 2018
BEST ANSWER: It’s hard to say. The sights are fairly tolerant to heat considering how hot an aluminum picattiny rail can get under rapid fire. However, fully submerging the sights into really hot water with dye may cause warping in some places, especially where the springs have tension.
are these absolute co witness with a Trijicon MRO?
Nick S on Nov 18, 2018
BEST ANSWER: It depends on if you have an absolute co witness mount with your MRO.

Magpul MBUS
Seem very well made for the price. Have not put them on a rifle yet but have an ATI budget AR-15 on the way and will install them on that range gun. So this review is just on overall impression after holding them and inspecting them but not yet shooting them on a rifle.

Magpul MBUS
I bought these for a 7.62x39 AR build and Optics Planet are slowing me down so haven't got any pics but I've used them in the past and they work fine for what I like. A beefy 15"-17 MLOK railed, minimalist stock and a linear comp. Nice-N-Nasty!!!

Good value
They are excellent sites and easy to install. Once placed on my rail and tightened I zeroed them and they have performed great. I bought them as a back up to my optics.

no need to be metal
quality matters, not material. As a reserved aim device, this one serves its purpose well.
