MBUS Modification

I like my Magpul MBUS sights mostly because they are relatively affordable and generally more durable than aluminum sights. However, I am glad they are just back up sights because the wide, strangely shaped front sight obscures more of my field of view than I prefer and doesn’t always draw my eye to the front sight like a standard front sight base does. Apparently I am not the only one who feels this way because the guys at Paper Street Holster Co. posted a picture of a very slick modification that they do to the MBUS front sight that makes it a little bit more like a standard front sight base.

I am going to have to give this a try.

    Wonder if this would effect the durability significantly. I’ve seen the drop tests and whatnot showing the polymer allowing more flex than say, Tory’s for example, which have a tendency to bend and get ruined. But with the thin middle part there seems like it would just snap it off completely…
