I have a magpul BUIS and a troy BUIS, In all honesty I wish I would have went magpul on both rifles. If I was using a front sight on a gas block I would be using troy other wise its pretty hard to beat the magpul sights , they sit low when closed , simple lever to open up and just push them down to close, The Troy I have to flip up with is no big deal but you have to push the slide in to close it , again no big deal . both very well made .
Just watch out for the china made PTS airsoft replicas , buy from a reputable dealer

The PTS line are not knock-offs. They are actually licenced by Magpul and can be found on their site. I have a pair. Although I can't find any difference between the two lines the PTS are said to be produced in a different factory.

That said I probably wouldn't purchase another set to sit in the parts box next to the others.

I have Magpul MBUS flip up sights on my carbine and got to use them for the first time last weekend. They worked great right out of the package. Worth the $83 (to me).
