Magpul MBUS sights
If I install a magpul mbus rear sight with a stock iron sight will that work? Will the magpul sight be too low for the iron sight? What kind of optic can I use with this set up?

Can't answer that question without knowing what you have.

The MBUS rear sight will be proper milspec height.

Commercial grade ARs like RRA, DPMS, Bushmaster, Oly and others do not have the milspec height front sight so they could have a zeroing problem, especially with a 100 yard zero.

Milspec style ARs like Colt, BCM, Daniel Defense, LMT, Spikes, Sionics, PSA and others shouldn't have issues.

What kind of optic are you thinking about?

When you get the MBUS, dont forget to flip the front part of the rear aperture sight down for anything but long range :)

Its a lot easier to see your sight picture this way :)

Your rear MBUS will be at the proper height after flipping up.

And while flipped down not get in the way of a Reddot etc.
I had 2 AR's set up like that.
works perfectly. :)

Does it have the f-marked FSB?

I put a magpul BUIS on my Del-ton Echo 316/MOE since it already had magpul everything else and it was almost perfect when I shot it the first time. Very little adjustment was needed to get it sighted in. Great backup sight to my Eotech 512.

My Colt 6920 came with the Magpul rear sight and iron front sight, It shoot dead on out of the box. Even at 200 yds if I aim just a shade high so I think you should be fine.

That's what the MBUS was designed to do. You'll be just fine my dpms was set up that way for a long time until I changed my hand gaurd to a Troy alpha rail.
