The MBUS Pro (Magpul® Back-Up Sight) is a corrosion resistant all-steel back-up sighting solution that delivers maximum functionality and strength with minimum bulk at a price that's even smaller than its size.
The dual aperture, windage adjustable Rear and no-tool, elevation adjustable Front excel in all 1913 Picatinny rail mounting applications, including rail-height gas blocks. Positive detents keep the MBUS Pro Front and Rear at standard AR sight height when deployed, and so low when they are stowed that you'll never notice them until they're needed. Narrow width Front is compatible with most IR aiming laser and light installations for the professional user.
Made in U.S.A.

I already reviewed the rear sight that goes along with this front sight. Both are top quality sights and are worth the extra money over polymer versions by far. This front sight has the ability to adjust elevation without using a tool which is nice. One thing I didn’t know until I received it is that the sight post is thin one way allowing for precision shots and can also be turned a quarter turn and use the wider side for self defense purposes. Super solid sight.
