MBUS was about $80 . Those plastic pop up sights made by Magpul. I thought maybe $30 or $40 but not $80. I need to sell these take off bits. That's a lot of beer money sitting around.

I wonder what else I took off that's laying around are worth?

One of our most popular selling rifles is the M&P Sport, which comes with a Rear Magpul MBUS. Up here in ND probably 75% or better AR style rifles that we sell leave with some sort of scope on it. Putting an actual scope on makes it impossible(sort of) to leave the sight on so I always offer the person buying the rifle if they would sell the sight for $20, almost every one of them sells it to me.

I then mark it $30 and throw it in our closeout bin. I have the rear sight in the Magpul packaging hanging on the wall for $40-43 usually so it is a win win for all three people that come in to possession of the sight.

The buyer of the gun gets $20 for something he doesn't care about and will never use, I make $10 and the buyer gets a brand new Magpul rear sight minus the packaging for $13 less than "new"

If I want/need a set of sights on an AR I want a good set of steel sights. The GG&G, Troy, or ARMS are worth the extra expense in my opinion.

PSA had the front/rear combo set on sale for $49.95 with free shipping awhile back. I snagged myself 3 sets.

Scopes are fine for long range and red dots are OK for close range CQB, but my rifle has iron sights.

I took a lot of flack and ribbing from my guys when I was in a T2 unit but that is the way I rolled.

I shot them better.

The only time I used a Scope was when I had an SR-25 or a SCAR-HL but with a M4 or M16 I like Irons. No battery's to run out no glass to bust.
