I risked it considering the flaky feedback but just got mine in today. As best I can tell it is all original packaging, unopened and is not the PTS version. So, I got one for $20 less than any of my LGS have then for.

Seller had a 56% approval

Seller had a 56% approval rating and then they created a new amazon account.

Look at marianale2014 and than alemarion2014 They are from the same city and state and sell the same products. So after they ripped people off they created a new account to do the same thing and barely even changed the name.

BUYER BEWARE

I wouldn't trust a seller

I wouldn't trust a seller with only 20 Amazon feedback records, on a product that is frequently counterfeited and/or frequently the PTS version sold as the real version.

Amazon (direct) had them on sale for $41.41 this morning and I grabbed a few more. I would personally not buy these from a new seller.

Not only does he have 20, but I'm pretty sure they have two stores, or some massive confusion. Seller one is marionale2014 and seller two is alemarion2014. Fishy at best, likely worse or maybe an attempt to clean up a reputation - either way guessing both stores were stood up this year. Both are from the same state too, FL.

This sight has no elevation

This sight has no elevation adjustment, so unless you just want to plink around, and don't care about accuracy, then you should probably go with another sight. I was going to use rude language and blast this sight, but I think you can understand what I'm trying to say. I bought a LMT rear sight and it's very nice compared to this Magpul rear sight.

Just ordered one for a back up AR. I wanted a fancy handguard and metal rear flip up site, but the $300+ you save by going with magpul really helps with the optic and light.

4 stars based on decent price and being in stock

I have these on a smith I bought and it's like the target finds the bullet lol. I always liked carry handles so I bought one and it shot way to the left even after adjusting so I put these back on. I figured it was the carry handle. I just bough a windham with the carry handle and was stoked to shoot it but same thing it went to the left. Even after screwing with it I come to realize carry handles look cool but suck ass. Now after awhile I learned the "trick" to shooting it but I'm a really good shot on all other sights from open to carry and worry the stupid handle sights will screw me up for other guns. Besides why shoot with garbage when there are good sights out there like this that work soooo well? Any feedback will be appreciated. Thanks

i think it has more to do

i think it has more to do with operator error than the carry handle sight. Google the army or marine field manual for a m16. Follow each and every step to zero your rifle. I spent 6 years in the army. There are no shortcuts for good marksmanship. I can hit pumpkins at 200 meters with my cheap ar15 using a spikes carry handle and off the shelf ammo.

I used the camellizer to check and see how low this went historically on amazon, and found the $36 "like New" from Amazon (probably an open box item) to be the lowest ever.

I don't even have a complete AR anymore, but i knew I would need the rear sight when i buy a complete upper with an A2 front sight.

Magpul stuff fluctuates, so just add the MBUS to your wish list on Amazon and keep an eye on it.

I tried these, and really

I tried these, and really didn't like them. They are good quality, but they do not sit flush like the ARMS ones. At the end of the day I prefer the Knights Armament Co flip up USMC version and an A2 front sight. I also like the Daniel Defense fixed front and fixed rear and a co-witness with my HALO........trucks don't run your guns over in combat......and if you drop your gun you are dead.....

I love the "could happen" stuff...reminds me of Tommy Boy when Chris Farley screws up the Butcher and the Cow analogy....yes, a lot of stuff "could " happen.....but it never does.

This is just my opinion and know plenty of guys who love these...they are very durable and a great value.

Problem with the drop test

Problem with the drop test for me, is that the other two sights LOCK into place. They don't hold up well to dropping because of that. The Magpul MBUS does not lock, it merely stays up through spring tension.

How often are you dropping a firearm from 5, and how often is it going to be over concrete, and how often is it going to land right on the sights?

The only time I can see my dropping my rifle, is a sling/attachment fails while I am not actually holding the fire arm, and in that case it most likely wouldn't land directly on the sights, and I probably wouldn't have them flipped up during that time.

Don't get me wrong. I still use Magpul's sights because I like the price to effeciency ratio. But its something to take into account.
