    I'm looking to get a set of flip up sights for my m4 build. I'm just wanting to know which ones are good ones and which ones aren't. What are your experiences. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks

    In order of price (I believe):

    Troy
    YHM (Yankee Hill Machine)
    Magpul MBUS

    All three have worked well for me.

    Regards,

    Troy are pretty much the gold standard for flip up sights right now, but a set will run you around $200. For something lower budget, the Magpul MBUS are pretty good.

    I'm very pleased with the Magpul MBUS and you can't beat their price and low weight. I haven't tried the Troy, MI or YHM.

    I've been looking into the dueck defense sights they sit on a 45 degree angle off the top rail so you can have a optic and rotate your rifle a little and use your iron sights

    I have the Magpul MBUS pop ups on my M4, I love em. Zero problems with em and they always snap up when released no matter how much you mess with them.

    Thanks for the info everyone. It sounds like I can't go wrong with a set of troys or magpuls.

    I swear by MagPul products....I have a set of their flip-up sights on 4 rifles...never, and by "never", I mean FREAKIN' NEVER had a problem with them coming loose, or out of lock or zero even after having been taken off the rifle.

    I have UTG flip-ups on my Just Right 9mm/.45 ACP carbine and they seen great so far. I am going to change the blade out in the front though, my old eyes need the help of a white lilne blade.

    Ive had great experience w/ Magpuls gen1 MBUS and Troy BUIS. I really need to get ahold of a Gen2 set. They look great and are a lower profile which would make it easier to mount a scope.
