    I have the GG&G but, I think either will be a good choice.

    From my experience, the Midwest Industries (SPLP) Same Plane, Low Profile rear is just as good as the Troy and GG&G for less money. I use the SPLP and MI HK style front as primary sights on a couple ARs. You really can't go wrong with Troy or GG&G though.

    Go to a shop that carries rear sights and look at them in person. It's the only way you'll figure it out. Unfortunately, GG&G stuff isn't carried by many stores.

    I've always been partial to the Troys.

    I just installed the Magpul BUS and I gotta say, I am very impressed with it.

    I've always used ARMS 40 series...Troy looks good and is well made, others are as well I'm sure.

    Paid $45 for my black MBUS from Magpul........have to say, it is an excellent option.

    Same here (again). I have the GG&G on the house AR and the Magpul rear MBUS on the truck gun. The GG&G has the 2-apertures (large and small) and the Magpul has a single aperture. I'm happy with both.

    Production of those has been halted!
    Seems there is a bit of an issue with the person who designed it.

    Troys, I use them, my cousins and friends all use Troy BUIS. Weaponparts.com had a deal for them at $90, I picked up four for that price.

    I've got a Troy BUIS on my AR. I'm very impressed with it.

    I have GG&G MAD rear sight I like it a lot!
    It's perfect for the Eotech and it's Rock Solid.
