my rear sight is junk and i can't decide witch one to get
are there any pros or cons to these sights

Pesonal prfeerence, you can't go wrong with either. The ARMS does deploy with the smaller aperture tho, if that matters to you.

I have used both. I like the speed at which the ARMS deploys but I went with the Troy because, to me (I am no engineer), it looks and feels stronger.

I chose the Troy.
Best sight availible IMHO.

I've used both - they're different, but they're the same.

I have both and both are good. However my next rifle will have troy. Also as a note the troy is black and the arms is the gray type color if that matters to you.

Another difference is that the ARMS have a spring to raise the sight and doesn't lock in the up position, a spring is another part that have to be maintained when worn out.

The Troy doesn't have a spring and locks up, a release button have to be pushed to lower the sight.

ARMS have exposed easy to accidentally mis adjust windage knob while the Troy have shrouded windage adjustment.

I went with Troy on my two carbines, just personal preference.

Depending on your optics set-up, you may want to go with Troy since it has a lower profile than the ARMS 40L.

Troy = 0.46" folded
ARMS 40L = 0.61" folded



I have two Troy rears and an ARMS 40L-SP, they're both nice.

I don't think you can go wrong with either, each has it pros & cons.

I like the ARMS # 40 and own three of them.

Have both prefer the Troy.

thanks for all the info

I have owned both, but still have the Troy. As mentioned above, the Troy looks and feels stronger.

Troys have springs in them as well... they dont flip the sights up, but there are springs in the locking mechanism... the spring loaded push-button.

ETA - Have had both in the past, and I just got another pair of LaRue marked Troy's sitting on my rifle.

Agreed, I was just talking about the spring that flip up the ARMS sight which the Troy doesn't have.


To OP revo99:

Troy BUIS also deploys with the large aperture as default, ARMS first default are the small aperture.

Some prefers the small aperture first when used, some prefers the large aperture first, I prefer the large aperture first just in case I have to use it in close range first.

As stated by the post above, Troy also comes with different markings like LaRue, Noveske, and BCM.
