    It's not Magpul if it's not plastic.

    It does sound interesting. I will have to wait and see.

    Pretty cool, but for that price I'll stick with Troys. I have several sets of MBUS, but the only advantage to them is their $90/set cost. If we're talking the $200+/set range, Troy is the answer.

    Meh.

    I am pretty happy with most Magpul products, but I'm going to have to pass on those.

    The rotary (no tool) adjustment of the front sight is very cool.

    Agreed. Do any other flip up sights have that feature? I have a set of MBUS sights but never really paid attention to the others. I like the weight of the MBUS as my SBR is already heavier than I'd prefer.

    Interesting. Only if they were a little cheaper though, for that kind of money you can get Troys.

    My feeling exactly. Why not just stick with something that is already proven at the same price.

    How do they compare in weight and folded height to Troy? The deciding factor to me is not if something is "proven" on the internet forums, but rather weight, size, cost, and finally functionality. Yes, I list functionality last as it's the last thing that I can verify if I'm ordering them sight unseen. Naturally this changes if I can put my hands on them in person first.

    Saw these today online coming soon. Went with a set of Troys for $189 shipped.


    The front dial on the mbus pro is nice but how often will I be adjusting it?

    I will zero them once, fold them down and forget about them until my optic fails.

    I can't use plastic mbus on my 516 upper.
