Default Iron Sights Suggestions

Hey guys I was wondering what kind of iron sight setup I should run on my ar15, I have a eotech 552 and just wondering what kind of backup sights I can run on my gas block. Thanks for any help. The eotech is not on for picture purposes but I have magpul mbus sights but I heard they can melt on the gas block. Thanks

Use the magpul flip ups or if you want to spend a little more go with the Diamondhead flip ups. They're very nice but pircey

If you want a really useable setup get a midwest front and a matech rear. Its as close as your going to get to a decent workable setup for a flattop without a fixed fsb

I'm using a Daniel defense front fixed sight and a standard utg flip up rear. No problems hitting what I was aiming for at 60 yards. Haven't tried much passed that. The set up cost me about 70 bucks, most of which was on the dd front

Will a fixed front sight block the view from a eotech 552?
