Magpul MBUS Sight, Front.

The MBUS is a low-cost, folding back-up sight. The front sight is adjustable for elevation and fits most 1913 Picatinny-railed hand guards, but is specifically tailored to the AR15 / M16 platform.

Elevation adjustment

One click is a quarter (1/4) of a turn and your setting is retained by a detent. The effect of one click is roughly as follows:

  • 1.6 MOA (48 mm / 100 m or 1.68" / 100 yd) with the sight radius of a 14.5" carbine
  • 1.2 MOA (35 mm / 100 m or 1.26" / 100 yd) with the sight radius of a 20" rifle

The included leaflet says the adjustment range is fine for rifles but you could run into issues trying to zero a pistol-caliber carbine to longer distances due to the snowball-like trajectory. Savvy in trigonometry and ballistics as we are, we think you can overcome this by mounting the front and rear sights closer to each other. It's not like your PCC is very accurate and frankly, you're probably no marksman, either.

An elevation adjustment tool is included, but most aftermarket A2 front sight adjustment tools may be used as well.

Notes on installation

To keep the construction more simple and durable, the claw is fixed and slides onto the rail either from the front or rear. Once the sight is in position, a crossbolt locks it into the chosen Picatinny slot and tightens the grip to keep it zeroed. You'll need a 1/8" allen key or something flat for tightening the crossbolt but don't overdo it!

The sight must be mounted on the same plane as the receiver rail to achieve zero. This won't happen with MOE handguards with accessory rails on top, so that's a no-go. Another no-go-thing are railed gas blocks because of heat issues.

Made in USA

Made by Magpul

Magpul Industries is an American designer and manufacturer of firearms accessories and related items. The name comes from the first product released in 1999, a rubber add-on to a 5.56 mm STANAG magazine to help pulling it out of a pouch. Anything that says "Magpul" is most often well designed, which means it gets the job done but is also simple. We like their attitude.
