i see there is tons available but most are at the $100.00 range and above. was curious if anyone has any suggestions on a cheaper set that are good quality. I know everyone is looking for the most product for the lowest amount of money but lets be realistic here i cant spend a shit ton on sights or my wife will go nuts. (use for the gun will be home defense if the need arises and plinking, target shooting for fun with the family, i have a red dot but was needint BUIS in case the shit hits the fan and my batteries are dead. )

Check out Magpul's BUIS. They are very good quality and will suit your budget.

LMTs have gotten cheaper as seen above.

I personally like Matechs since they are on my issue weapon on the Mil side. I just bought another one for $33 shipped on Ebay.

The first one I bought about 7 years ago cost me $120.

This

If your a real cheap skate the air soft MBUIS aren't to bad. They like to flip up by themselves but for $25 a pair I use them on a couple of .22s I have.

If its for home defense, I wouldn't skimp on the sights, and would get some TROYs. But if you have an Aimpoint, EOTech or Trijicon optic, then a pair of Magpul MBUS's will do.

Matech fold +/- $35 with minimal trouble

Troy fixed $45

LMT fixed $50

Those would be my budget choices I have/have had all of them and they are all solid dependable sights.

This. although they are like 80-90 a set + shipping. You really can't get anything for cheaper in a folding set that would be worth using.

Troy fixed sights. You can find them for about $55 new

I would also add the Larue QD LT-103. Usually in the $65-70 range on the EE in new condition.

check out the ARMS BUIS. around 50-60 each. folding, spring loadaed. seem to be a bit more solid than the Magpuls IMHO

i like the magpul ones. solid unit that is easy to use and adjust. folds down nicely and stays out of the way. easy to deploy. and cheap. the plastic part doesn't bother me much.

There is nothing too wrong with the magpul MBUS and they are cheap. I found that they take up a lot of space on your rail if you are running an ACOG or magnifier that needs to be mounted towards the rear. Another problem I had with the MBUS is that I had to crank my front sight post all the way up (to the point where if I turned it one or two more times it would fall out and it wiggled around a good bit) to even get it close to being zeroed. I switched to an $80 YHM and the problem was eliminated... However, the YHM was too tall for me to be able to remove the aimpoint magnifier from the twist mount.

I would go with a Troy... its going to be solid.

I have used the Daniel Defense A1.5 and the Troy fixed rear sight, both are good, but I like the Troy more than the DD.

I got a pair of Troy's myself.

I have to say the Magpuls are a good option; however some critics have claimed that the plastic material may cause some problems, especially when mounted on a gas block of a gas piston rifle. What do you shoot, DI or gas piston?

I believe Midwest Industries makes some relatively inexpensive stuff, including folding BUIS.

I didn't skimp though, i got Troy.
