Great sight for the price. Light and durable. Would highly recommend. If you want something more robust, go with a DD fixed sight.

This is a very well designed and built back up sight. It tucks down flat and pops up when needed. I did not realize it should not be used on a gas block until after I opened the package and read the fine print. Looked at other online reviews and some said they have the potential of melting due to the heat generated. I ended up obtaining a metal LMT sight for the front. Other than that, it seems like a great item. Just not for my set up.

This item is the front sight and part of a second set of a like set of Magpul front & rear flip up sights, all installed on our AR15s & used as backup sights. Though inexpensive & constructed of plastic, they are light in weight, rugged, made in the U.S.A. and truly NOT a toy. Adjustments, using the Magpul tool provided, are easy.

I bought front and rear Magpul BUIS for my IWI U.S. Tavor rifle. These sights are easy to install, very sturdy (even though mostly plastic) and accurate. The Tavor's built-in BUIS sit about 1/8" higher than the Magpul's though, and that little difference makes getting a cheek weld difficult. I'm keeping these, because they're great sights, but I'll be using the rifle's built in BUIS until I get a red-dot.
