Search for ARMS, lawsuit and LaRue and make your decision.

I like the ARMS sights better. Lower profile,solid.I must be the only person that does not have a hate for all things SWAN.

Just remember, they are "backup" sights. I bet it has been two years since I flipped my 40l.

I'd vote MBUS... I love how quickly they deploy and seem to be really solid...

plus Swan is a Dick, so....

Well...I am definately and seriously thinking of not buying A.R.M.S. now do to "Mr. Swan being a royal f@#$ing deuschebag from becoming sue happy. I understand defending yourself from an employee who robbed a patent but to sue larue over using the trademark "1" and "7".......come on Lokks like i will have to look at larue as well and compare them to magpul

+1

Love the MBUS!
I have two sets, one on a AR57 and one on a 458 SOCOM. they're solid, they work, and the price is easy on the wallet.

... plus A.R.M.S. are sue happy bozo's, they also have a suit against Magpul, you can read about it in the Magpul industry forum.

I would go with the ARMS #41. I've never heard one bad reivew about that BUIS. It's been around....seen combat and such. Rock solid. Heard mixed reviews about the MBUS. FWIW...

I just got a mbus rear site and like it alot.

Out of the two, Magpul all the way. I like my MBUS. Besides that, Dick Swan is a piece of shit and shouldn't get a cent of your money.

Magpul, or anything else but arms. They suck.

At this point I wouldn't use arms, even if it were free. Just my 2 cents.

My Magpul MBUS rear sight has a tiny bit of play in it from side to side. It is barely noticable but still. Good sight for $40, though. I'd buy it again at that price but would like to upgrade to something made of metal eventually. YMMV
