That appears to be the Magpul PTS, which is real Magpul, but made for airsoft and paintball.

Not that you asked, but I thought I'd give you my opinion anyway... I really hate those sights. I bought the front and rear set, about 50 bucks from a local shop and I really dislike them. I am very fond of iron sights and would recommend a different set to you.

I have looked at them and I really think I will stick with MI or Troy in metal but in the non-metal LM&T has a good one.

The airsoft world has fakes for most of the popular accessories.. Ive seen fake EOtechs, Aimpoints,Acogs, Surefire suppressors, body armor, amongst other accessories.the mall ninjas buy that sh!t up like hotcakes. Whatever tactical accessories are out there for weapons, there is a fake to shadow it just for airsoft.

I personally like Magpuls MBUS. They are very durable and inexpensive.

What do you not like about them?

Yeah I was wondering the same thing. I guess at $50 for both he must be talking airsoft knockoffs. Anyway I love the real Magpul gear.

You'll remember the quality of a gun long after you forget how much you paid for it.

I own own a set of the PTS MBUS and I can't see a single difference. I was told that they do not come off of the same assembly line so who knows. They're sitting in the parts box if anyone needs a good set.
