Magpul MBUS 3

One of the most beloved brands in the airsoft community, Magpul Industries, will be releasing the latest in its famous line of aiming devices, the MBUS 3. Just like most of Magpul weapons accessories, the MBUS 3 is made of impact-resistant polymer which makes it lightweight and extremely durable.

According to the company, the MBUS 3 takes the best features of the original MBUS (Magpul Backup Sight) and MBUS Pro Sights in a new lower-profile, feature-packed back-up sight system. It uses the spring-loaded technology for the flip-up sights, which is now becoming a standard on backup sights in rifles these days. With the use of an ambidextrous button, the MBUS 3 front and rear sights can be put to standard AR-height when flipped up.

Both front and rear sights are M1913 Picatinny rail compatible. However, the front sight is not recommend to be mounted on an AR15 direct gas block mount due to excess heat issues. The Front sight will need to be mounted on a railed forend which should be on the same plane as the receiver making it incompatible with MOE handguards.

The MBUS 3 will be released in Spring and will be available in Black, FDE and OF Green. As for the price the front sight is $39.95 and $57.95 for the rear. For airsoft use, we may have to wait for PTS Syndicate to announce if they will be allowed to produce a version for the airsoft market especially outside of the USA.
