The new MBUS (Magpul Back-Up Sight) GEN 2 is a 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.Impact resistant polymer construction provides light weight and resists operational abuse.
Lightweight reinforced polymer construction.
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 MIL-STD-1913 Picatinny/STANAG 4694 railed hand guard and provides the same height-over-bore as standard A2 irons.
Protective wings shield the dual flip apertures
Detent knob easily and positively adjusts windage
NEW Features for GEN 2: Reduced size for greater optics compatibility. Spring-locking front sight post holds consistent elevation.
