    The problem with flip ups like MAGPUL composite one are they sound not be mount to the gas block. They do not stand up to excessive heat over time. You need metal ones. If you have a rail on it then they are fine.

    I have DD iron sights on 45 degree off-set mounts on my AR.308 just in case.

    I have ATN X-SIGHT II HD 3-14x day & night rifle scope. It is the greatest optic I've ever owned! Good performance, easy to use, and the Wi-Fi streaming is amazing. I bought mine from official website(link). Hope you`ll find it great too

    I haven't seen it mentioned, but for me, it would be a removable carry handle. If it came off in the field you can find it. Spend the extra money and buy a decent one. The $30 ones are junk.

    Agreed. NEVER trust your life to plastic sights. A.R.M.S. are GREAT. Pricey, but VERY much worth it.

    The syn materail ones are great when used as the should be. I have beat the carp out of them. We have even mounted the MAGPUL one on a gas block against the recommendations just to test them. It is still holding up. Now I am betting if you went out and did MAG dump after Dump it would likely suffer. A large number of us now have full rails on our AR's they do not get hot like the gas block does. And the MAGPUL ones on my gas piston ones are well away from the gas port. So it is not an issue.
