It sits at standard AR-height when deployed and includes tool-less elevation adjustments and a dual width enhanced front sight.

    Magpul Announces Their New MBUS 3 Iron Sights: “Constructed of our impact-resistant polymer”

    Not to be pedantic, but shouldn’t that lead read “MBUS 3 Plastic Sights”?

    1. avatar Newshawk says:

      The term “iron sights” refers to any open, non-optical rifle (or pistol) sights. It is not a direct reference to the material the sights are made of. Who uses iron in a firearm these days, anyway?

      1. avatar jackass jim says:

        All steel is iron, but (obviously) all iron is not steel. Now it can be plastic.

        1. avatar Geoff "I'm getting too old for this shit" PR says:

          “All steel is iron,…”

          Really?

          Even nickel-based ‘stainless steel’ that is non-magnetic?

        2. avatar Unlicensed Bozo says:

          Geoff

          Look up how much nickel is in steel percent wise

      2. avatar StriFriedPanda says:

        You are correct, but it is redundant saying MBUS 3 Iron sight. That is like saying BUIS Iron sight.

  2. avatar Jeff the Griz says:

    Made of polymer, and I’ll still see a bunch of pictures of guys bragging they bought them to put on those railed gas blocks. 😂

  3. avatar Shwiggie says:

    I’m almost disappointed that they weren’t straight-up made of iron….

  4. avatar Montana Actual says:

    Nope.

  5. avatar GregV says:

    I’ll stick with Troy Industries. Their sights are all metal.

    1. avatar Montana Actual says:

      +1

      I love mine too. I also have a pair of DD’s that are equally as good.

      1. avatar Randomguy says:

        Call me retarded, but I wont purchase or use anything Troy because of the fact they hired the HRT killer. Not a fan of government baiting someone to do something then to kill their spouse, dog, anyone-just because a short barreled shotgun is the tool of the devil. Rant off. Troy does have cool stuff, just not for me.

  6. avatar jackass jim says:

    Iron sights made of plastic.

    That is tantamount to a Democrat Patriot.

  7. avatar TP says:

    NICE! No more having to use Swiss army knife to open peep aperture.

  8. avatar Grumpy F'er says:

    Annnnnnnnd knocked off in China in 3…2…1…

  9. avatar Bobeus says:

    A lot of the metal sights are aluminum, so they are not “Iron Sights” either. I will check these out in person and may buy them if they seem functional and sturdy. I have a lot of Magpul stuff and have not been disappointed yet.

    1. avatar Ragnar says:

      Agreed, Magpul has been reliable in my experience. I have taken their original MBUS on combat deployments, training and competitions, never had an issue with any of them.

      I will give these a try as well.

    These sights are No Good, all I can see is a thumb, oh that’s my thumb. “Tacticool hold yah got there.”
    Yeah , it’s minute of thumb.

    1. avatar armadillo says:

      I’ze prefer yer Marsupial Milradians. Yer Minute of Thumb provided larger groups. May have confused anatomy that looked like a thumb resulting in higher reproduction rates. Maybe should have stuck with hand loading. Anywho, the Marsupial Milradians work better with my front focal plane behind my bifocal spectacles.

  11. avatar NTexas says:

    THANKS ON INFO

  12. avatar Chadwick says:

    I fail to see the issue here. Backup sights in case your optic goes down. Seems like a nice way to get some sub $100 sights that are light and relatively strong. Don’t do upside down rifle pushups with them open. Problem solved.

    1. avatar Damiskit Keaholvalota says:

      Iz gud buy AK to site no needing it

    A C-clamp grip with the amazing new “polymer iron” sights. I love marketdroids.
