    Looking to buy a set and wanted some input on what's out there without breaking the bank. Have a vortex sparc on the gun and love it but I need a set.
    Thanks

    Troy's are excellent, also Yankee Hill Machine and Wilson Combat. I have used Troy battle sights on other builds. I currently have a set of Magpul BUIS, light weight polymer, adequate for back up sights, and less expensive than the premium steel sights.

    I have the Troy industries flip up iron sights.

    Some of the best on the market but about $200 for the set.

    If I were shooting primarily irons, I like the Diamondheads. Though Id like to try the Matechs.

    If I'm using optics, I get the strongest lightweight ones like the MBUS 2.

    This is the Windham I need the sites for. Is there a diamond head set that isn't around $200? Little cheaper

    Also has anyone tried the 45degree sites? Just curious. And QUESTION for you guys. In theory when I put the sites on the weapon should my zero'ed red dot light up with my front site when looking through the scope??

    Again I'm new to the ar world this is my first and will post some updated pics of the add-ons I purchased.

    Love the look of them trying not to spend as much. If I do I will save then spring on a set. What's a good vendor?

    For ~$100.00 you can get set up with magpul polymer sights. They function well, are light weight and very durable. They should co-witness with your red dot depending on which spacers you used with the vortex sparc. If your dot is sighted in, adjust your front sight post to it and you should be on.

    Don't mount the polymer sight to your gas block as they can melt under sustained fire.

    Good luck.

    Diamond Heads are my new favorite. It makes it much easier to get your sight alignment and sight picture.
