JTT readers knew about these sights first. Magpul is releasing new MBUS Pro Offset Sights and they are probably going to rock… hard.
By now you should know that the MBUS Pro Sights are really, really nice. They boast things like steel construction, Melonite finish, tool-less adjustment, solid detent lockup, and a very compact form factor. The good news is that the new MBUS Pro Offset Sights will have all the same features and they will deliver those features at the same price. That’s right. I said the new offset sights will cost the same as the original MBUS Pros which are pretty reasonably priced for what you get. It surprised me too.
I have been using offset sights for some time and they continue to grow on me. They tend to see wider acceptance on rifles with higher magnification optics where they serve as a not only a backup sighting system but a faster one for closer targets. However, I have also found them to be valuable with any optic, even red dot sights. I live in a place where it gets very cold. Moving between a heated home and the icy cold polar vortex parked over my house can fog even high quality optics. I have never had one of my Aimpoints become mechanically disabled but I have fogged them before. A fogged optic is easy to deal with if you have offset sights.
The new sights are available to order right now and they will being shipping immediately. Check out the new MBUS Pro Offset Sights at Magpul.
