    Hey guys, is there a flip-up rear sight you prefer these days? I bought a set of the Scalarworks PEAK sights, but the sight picture is just too busy with an MRO on their lower 1/3 mount. Lower 1/3 works well for me with a larger optic like the Comp M4 but the smaller diameter of the MRO makes it just a little too much.

    So what flip-up iron sight is a good choice? Price is no object, obviously if I'm buying Scalarworks gear ...

    I have tried and like the Magpul MBUS Pro, that is what I'm leaning to at the moment but I would like to hear your opinions.

    What's your intent with the sights? Precision, fast, or just having a back up?

    I've found the KAC Micro 600m makes shooting precisely at distance much easier when paired with a KAC front sight. But the smaller aperature that makes that possible (at least for me) doesn't make it as fast (at least for me). Then again, I don't tend to shoot up close with irons much because it's 2019 (kidding....kind of).

    I want to be able to use them reliably up to 100 yards on a CMMG Banshee 9mm PCC with 8" barrel. I rarely use the small aperture on AR sights, I find that out to 100 yards the large aperture works for me. So with that in mind, weight, durability and ease of deployment are my highest priority aspects.

    I think the Rainier Sights are the best. Expensive though and you can’t buy just a rear.

    I like the KAC Micro and MBUS Pro and how you can adjust the front sight with the little wheel rather than needing a sight tool (or 5.56 round) BUT it’s not a huge deal

    The Griffin M2 folding sights are nice and have been on a rifle of mine for a while.

    Most recently purchased is a KAC (non micro) front that folds down into the sight base, protecting it from impacts etc. Not cheap but functional and durable

    Magpul pros are probably more than enough. Iíve seen reports of lacking durability but Iíve had no issues. KAC are nicer and well tested but spendy. Between them on price is Rainier, which Aragorn mentioned. They are refined. And I love the the way aperture tucks out is the way.

    Edit: the new sights from Midwest Industries look good too.

    These are definetly my favorites, have used them on all my builds. Really like the rear apature thats lifts and turns. Can take some serious abuse. Plus they are 25% off right now. https://www.lwrci.com/p-451-lwrci-sk...ights-set.aspx

    If you're consistently using the large aperture, I'd consider the Troy's since their rear only folds down in the large position. Good deal for a set at AIM

    I also like the MI, they're solid.

    Others that I like that are more money, Rainier's BUIS, KAC's, and of course the MBUS Pro's have worked well for me.

    I'm probably odd man out, but my favorite rear BUIS has been the Brownell's 360 Series Tactical Rear Sight for several years.

    Thanks guys I will check out all these and post again when I've tried one out for a bit.

    Just to be clear, I am looking for a flip-up sight, not a fixed sight.

    Appreciate the responses; thanks guys.
