    Finally got me an AR15

    Bought this off a private sale at the gun show today,

    Its a custom build, DPMS upper and internals, colt barrel, rocky river grips, the lower reciever was made by a local class 3 ndealer in my home town (larsen arms?) he said he had less then 200rdns through it and judging by the markings on it Id say its true.

    Paid $700, I was about to start collecting parts to build my own but I figured I couldnt go wrong for a shooter.

    I need rear sights now.

    Any ideas on what I could start out on for rear sights??

    I want optics too but that will be added later (im thinking reddot or something along these lines)

    AR15 Rear Iron Sights

    I'm going to stick with the carry handle sights on my upcoming AR build for a while. I figure anything on that page will be a safe bet.

    I too thought about the carry handle sights, I saw these at the gun show but he only had green left...

    Magpul MBUS Gen 2 Rear Back Up Iron Sight - Black

    I like the idea of keeping things kinda low profile, but with a front fixed sights already i'm pretty much stuck with taller mounting optics

    I've got a Troy folder on my BCM middy.



    Remember, if you're gonna run a riflescope, then you'll need a folding rear sight.

    Why do you want a carry handle over a flat top with rear folding sight? Or even a rear fixed sight? Carry handles don't make ANY sense to me..... at all. I would on want a carry handle for one very specific reason. And that is if I decided to buy or build a vintage M16 clone, and that is it. As far as REAL use, I see no use for a carry handle.

    My M&P came with a Troy rear sight. I've stuck with it. I like that MBUS will flip up with the press of a button. The Troy sight is a little tough to flip down quickly but what I find most annoying is that if the small aperture is in use, the rear sight will not flip down all the way. I have yet to use the large aperture. I'd like to keep my rear sight on the small aperture but flipped down.

    I am using the Magpul MBUs on my primary AR. They are strictly Back Ups for my RDS though. I have the Troy folding dioptic for an up coming build.

    If you plan on going with optics of any kind in the future, stay away from a carry handle and go with one of the low profile folding rear sights.

    UTG is airsoft garbage and nothing that they market will hold up to any real use. I have heard rumors that they are starting a better line under a new name but I haven't seen any details about it at all.

    Just because you have a fixed front sight does not mean that you have to use high mounts for optics. A true co-witness with a RDS is just fine and with magnification the FSB blurs out and is not distracting at all.

    Backups is exactly where i'm thinking I want to be, some semi decent backups on the rear...don't I need a different front sight with that type of troy sight?

    I've had some BSA reddot optics on other rifles but not sure on how they'll mount up on my mine, I have some researching to do.

    The Troy folding rears match up with the F marked FSB on flat top receiver.
