well, we need more info! like what you intend to do with it? there are tons of choices. iron sights, RDS, scopes.
are you looking to shoot a qaurter at 200 yards or mansized targets at 50yards?

also need a budget idea.
do you want to spend $100 or $600?

Magpul mbus. Cheap, effective, strong and durable.

If you are looking for traditional battle sights, Magpuls are a good compromise of cost and quality. If you have a flat top upper with fixed front sight post, add flip up rear Magpul and you can get started.

If your upper has a FF tube with a Picatinny rail that is the same height us the upper receiver, a Magpul flip up front sight matched with the flip up rear is good.

Just don't attach a Magpul front site on a gas block, it will melt. :eek:

A set of Magpuls can be had for ~$80.

Lots of scopes, red dot sites for any budget.

Definitely need to know about the intended use and type of sights being asked about.

I really want something close to military like detachable carry handle sights or regular flip up sights. On into the basic ar look no frills just gun.

Magpul for the battle sights. You can get a TruGlo red dot for under $50 and have a great time plinking.

detachable carry handles can be had on amazon, ebay, and at the LGS for very reasonable prices. assuming you want a carry handle i gather you have a permanent front sight post... again im assuming because you have failed to give us the whole picture. so its the best guess we have... magpuls MBUS sights are also good for reasonable priced flip up sights.
also military has RDS's, and scopes. hence why we asked :P

Sorry I'm joining the air force and I want sights similar to what ill use when in bmt. The gun I'm looking at has the front post, and is also a flat top so if in the future I wish Tp upgrade I have an easier platform to work with.

Guess you'd better find out what they'll use. Good chance it'll be Matech rear, if so you can buy them used on ebay for $40 or so.
