Setting up a rifle or carbine with optics but still want to have iron sights? If you're installing a sizable riflescope or a magnifier with a red-dot sight you know how difficult it can be to squeeze backup sights onto a crowded top rail.

Magpul's MBUS Pro Offset Iron Sights might be just the thing for that rail, then. Occupying less than an inch of rail space apiece, these sights are offset 45 degrees to allow maximum utility in a small package. These full-featured sights are adjustable for windage (rear sight) and elevation (front) without the need for tools, and they are slim and unobtrusive when stowed.

Each sight features all-steel construction with a melonite finish. Positive detents in both the deployed and stowed position keep the sights exactly where they are supposed to be. Since they're offset 45 degrees there's no concern that the stowed sight will consume too much rail, nor will it impact your optic when deployed. The rear sight features both large and small apertures for targets at varying distances.

MSRP: $104.95, rear sight; $84.95 front sight. Currently only available in black.

Solving Issues with Brass Casings

Recently, while shooting a Norinco SKS, I experienced a failure to go into battery. Upon removing the cartridge, I found the round to be “shrouded” by another brass casing.
