I like the Troy sights, and I also have a GG&G rear sight that has worked well.

under 100 magpul mbus is about it.

100 each is the next price point. i like the midwest industries slp sight its very slim and has a very large peep and a nice small peep for precision. the large is great for rainy weather and fast acquisition.

best precision are the rra detachable national match irons. but they run a little more. rra is the only detachable that works reliably with f marked fsb from 100-800m you get a choice of 1/2 or 1/4 moa clicks

so it really depends on your intended use

You can find a metric ton of used like new Matech rear sights on ebay for about $35.

Magpul MBUS or Troy BUIS, never really had a desire for anything else.

Low budget? Get used to the polymer MBUS. You'll be glad you did.

Would it have negative effect if I used a RRA rear sight and a magpul front sight... aside from it looking a little funny?

Just have to be cautious with the MagPul sights if you have a gas block rail. You can't use them on a gas block because of temperature and height.
