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.

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.
I have a 9 slot picitanny rail and vortex-sparc-ar-1x-red-dot-scope will these sights work well and fit all correctly on my ar pistol set up?
Davidg on Jan 6, 2019
BEST ANSWER: They will. I have them behind a Romeo 4 and Juliet 4, and there is still space for them (rear stays down when Juliet is up).
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.

BEST ANSWER: As long as you get one with the "1/3 Co-witness mount" in my opinion. It will work, but I have not had a holosun to try, but I have used these sites with many of the budget-friendly red dots. you just have to be sure it has 1/3 co-witness and go from there.

bought on daily deal. YES!!! all around with price
So, they said price too low to advertise, and had to put in cat and apply code to see.
Normally with other sites, that is a gimmick and its a crap 3 or 4% discount. Umm.. not here it's legit and worth it.
I'll respect their wishes of not mentioning the price but I'm tight on money and wanted 1 set and went back and updated my cart to get 2. seriously considered buying like 5 or 10 but while I think I have I comfy couch, I'd prefer to not be exiled to it by my girlfriend for spending too much money on unneeded things. lets just say that I could very easily buy 3 here for what I've seen the price of 2 at other decent sites and maybe have a couple bucks left over
