Default Which Polymer Flip Sight is the best?

I'm looking to purchase a Polymer rear flip sight for my AR and I can't decide between a Pro-Mag sight, a Magpul MBUS, or a ARMS polymer flip sight.

I've never purchased a flip sight, so I'm not sure which makes the better quality sight. I know magpul is known for good sights, but the MBUS looks chunky....

Are you dead set on going polymer? I've heard of the Magpul polymer sights breaking during installation. Probably due to over-tightening, but you get the idea. I'm a big fan of the Troy battle sights. Also, check GG&G and Midwest.

I'm a firm believer in Polymer, I think it is just as sturdy as metal and if anything, more weather proof.

I'll look into Troy sights and GG&G, thanks

I have some ARMS 40s and they rock. But they are steel.

The MagPul polys that I've played with have been very nice.

I have Magpul on my AR. A little cheaper than iron or steel. Seems like it will hold up well....but I rarely use it.

I have no experience with BUIS, but I have several Magpul items and their quality is second to none in my opinion. If I were looking for BUIS, I would buy MagPul.
