I just want some rugged front and rear folding BUIS for a pictanny rail AR.

I just something simple that will alow me to zero at 50 yards, but I dont want to spend an arm and a leg.

Just something simple, rugged, and will hold its zero

Dont care about co-witnessing

Any suggestions?

Thanks

Cheapest would probably be magpul.If you can be happy with polymer sights.

Spend the money  and get the Troy BUIS. Averaged over the 50-100 year lifespan of the sights they are cheap.

Troy for a folder.

For a gun with no optics, the MBUS is a horrible choice.

It's great for a backup to optics, but it wouldn't be my primary aiming device.

That's why they're called "MBUS": Magpul Back-Up Sights.

Magpul
YHM
Troy

Troy is by far the best, Magpul is the cheapest, YHM is a good choice that is often overlooked, but I'd rather have one of the other two.

I'd go Troy (or one of their re-branded versions from several vendors) for rugged flip-up BUIS if it's going to be used as a primary sight.  It locks positively in the deployed position, so recoil and bumping/jarring won't theoretically affect it as much as a spring-held version.

If no optic and no need for flip-ups in the forseeable future, LaRue makes a simple fixed sight.  I have an LMT fixed BUIS on my irons-only midlength, and it does the job as well as you'd expect a chopped A2 carry handle variant to do. (i.e. very well)

I more question, what size rings will I need to fit the troy folding sights under a 3x9x40 one inch leupold scope?
