Great B/U sight December 21, 2016
Reviewer: James Miller from Howard City, MI United States  
Exactly as described and sale price made it a better buy than other lower priced sights of questionable quality.  Needed this for a Dissipator upper (carbine barrel with rifle-length sight radius) and works fine.  SKD lightning shipping a bonus!

works as advertised October 7, 2015
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Dover, DE United States  
SKD's shipping was quick as usual.

The sight was an extremely tight fit on the rail, had to be hammered forward (I tapped it forward with the handle of my multitool) to slide into place. Very good quality composite, screw fastens it into place.  Very sturdy engineering.

The flip up design decreases the sight radius (maybe 1") but it's only a backup for an optic anyway.

The ergonomics are very good, sight can be flipped up just with a thumb toggle, without taking a hand off the grip. Sight is flipped back down quickly and locks back into place automatically.

Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Huntsville, AL United States  
Mounted the back up sight and it was dead on. No adjustment necessary. Thanks Magpul. SKD shipping was awesome as usual. Ordered on Wednesday and received on Saturday.

Sturdy product, great price January 27, 2015
Reviewer: Andrew K SPD from WI United States  
This is a great transition from a fixed sight to a flip down/up sight.  And just the right price where you don't get junk and don't have to spend a fortune.
