Model: MBUS – Front Gen 2

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.

Fit on EQ-12 Gen2 Quad Rail from Aero?
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.

Great sights
I caught these on sale at PSA. It wast too good of a deal to pass on. They installed easily on the rail of my rifle and were also easy to co-witness with the existing red dot optic. The lock up on the rail is tight.

Not really much to be said about the MBUS system, a more affordable option than most BUIS, the polymer doesn't feel cheap.

Excellent Sights
I've been using these as the primary sights in my first AR. My son and I zeroed them at 25 yards in about 15 shots. I took it back to the range a month later and set up at 50 yards, and kept 6 shots in a 2" bulls eye with no adjustments or tinkering needed. I had not used aperature sights before these; only scopes or notched ramp type sights before these. I'm very pleased with how easy these are to shoot, and how positive and steady the adjustments are.

Plastic
Recommend something in a stronger material. Sights move to much, Was unable to pinpoint a round at 25 m. Do not recommend for primary sites.

Great Sights at an Amazing Price!
I love my MBUS Flip Up sights! PSA sells them for an incredible price(especially when they are on sale) and I am a very satisfied customer. I will be buying more of these in the future, no doubt. Thanks PSA.

Decent "iron" sights
I've used plenty of iron sights on different guns and these are decent enough. On an AR they are supposed to be the back up sights to some type of optic and I think for this function or just 0-100yd shooting they do fine. With practice I'm sure you could take them further. Our grand-pappies didn't NEED optics to take long distance shots and they did ok. A little pricey if they're not on sale but if you catch them on-sale for 70 or less for the set that's not bad.
