Awesome sight, solid lockup, for the people who don't like the main plastic bearing, it is easy to switch out with a 3/16 steel bearing using a pin punch, punch out the main pin right to left swap out the bearings and put it back together. It takes about ten minutes but it's worth it. Great accurate perfect for use as Buis

Forget plastic sights, these metal sights are strong and sturdy. The sight was easy adjusted by the use of the markings and was right-on being centred on target. It was too easy. Nicely machined they lock in the upright position without much play.

I purchased two sets of sights to build three rifles. The third rifle went another way. These went on the rail easily and have a good sight picture. They adjusted easily with no tools. We got the rifles sighted in very easily. They were also reasonably priced.

These are a good solid value iron sights. If you need backups for an optic great choice, they work well, lay down flat and lock into place on rail and in the vertical securely. Use them for main sights on carbines and pistols too. Light weight yet strong enough for all a round shooting, zeros well stays on target. If you need a value sight that works WELL here you are

This is a great low profile sight, well made and great finish. Easy to install and a nice sight picture to adjust with front sight. I look for simple sights due to it being a back up sight. The set screw to attach to rail in simple and well made. I'm glad its doesn't have a large nob attached. Will buy again.

Nice for the price. There's a lot of different budget sights out there but I feel that you can't really beat these for the price. If you are running a red dot and want a descent pair of iron sights then these should do just fine for back ups

I purchased these for use as back up sights to an Eotech. They have a nice appearance and finish. They fold out of the way as I'd hoped. I find R.E.M. to be of good quality for the price. The sights co-witness well.

The UTG flip-up rear sight works great. Made of aluminum, not plastic. They work with my A2 front sight and if you have a flat top optic ready AR it is designed to match with the UTG MNT-755 flip-up front sight. Thanks Optic Planet.

I just finished a light weight 300black build. SAA 16" chf chromelined 1:8 with magpul furnature. This has a same plane aluminum gasblock so mbus were out. I was looking for a similar alternative that wasn't generic and that wasn't goi g to run $200 either. I saw reviews a d did alot of research thereafter... these sights are awesome. They have an excellent fit and finish. They line up perfectly, which shows the quality of the machining. And they are positive and sturdy. They were easy to zero and will fit under your variable scopes. They are also "f" height so they will cowitness with a red dot. Thanks again Optics Planet!

These seem to be very well made. Function perfectly and hold zero. We will see how they hold up, but I'm thinking of selling my Troy and Magpul sights and mounting these on all my rifles. Great sights for a great price.

Put this rear sight on my AR pistol and it matched up perfectly with the A2 front sight on my upper,sighting in was easy and fit and finish is great,the sight stays put when flipped up and folds down with the push button,it mounted tight to the flat top rail, I recommend this flip up rear sight.

Pretty impressed with this puchase. Its backup sights so you will only use them in emergency situations. The price you cant beat unless you are that tool at the range that has to show you every 200 dollar part on his rifle that works the exact same as ours..

These things are apparently in high demand. They are very sleek and adjustment is easy. Such a good option for those with a flat top reciever that has a fixed front sight. I tried to order the front flip up as well, but it was backordered for many months. I would purchase again for a rear BUIS application.

Leapers has become my go-to brand, they consistently deliver good value, and have convinced me that you don't have to pay top dollar to get consistent quality. I've bought Magpul flip-up sights and they are a little nicer, but not worth the extra cost in my book. I gave 4 instead of 5 because they aren't as smooth as Magpul, but they get the job done for me.

I love this back up sight. It is very affordable, the shipping was quick, and it looks great on my rifle! I would absolutely recommend this item. I will be placing another order soon for my next build.

Haven’t used yet but it’s solid, easy to adjust and lines up perfectly with my leapers front sight. I have confidence in it and it looks way better than the polymer ones that I’ve seen. It matches my rifle nicely.

This sight offers a very high value. This sight is very stout as well. Usually, anything made out of aluminum cost more than polymer but that is not the case with this sight. You get a quality made sight for a budget price. Good high value.

I purchased this sight for just over $20 and have to admit that I was not expecting much. Well, it was much better than I ever expected. No tool marks or burrs; tight fit. The quality far surpasses the price. I highly recommend this.

Great price, the fit and finish are very good.The sights lockup very tight in the raised position. I mounted these on a 300 Blackout as backup sights. I recommend these sights and would buy them again.

The sight is well constructed and sturdy. I mounted this rear sight with the companion front sight. Both worked as advertised with easy flip up and release. I have already sighted it in. It came with a mechanical zero preset and only required one small adjustment to bring windage to zero. Six Shots total.

Sight made of metal, seems well made and sturdy. Installed on rifle easily & remained tight and zeroed after a couple of hundred rounds fired. Did not notice any wobbled nor movement during recoil. Push button detent works well, I only wish it was spring loaded, but considering the price it is a good sight. Front sight easily adjusts with AR front sight tool.

I have to say, I am pretty impressed with these sights so far. They are made in Taiwan but, the machining and over-all craftsmanship is excellent. These are not like cheap chinese knock offs. The craftsmanship is on par with the Taiwanese T91 rifles. They are not spring loaded to flip up on their own. Not a big deal to me. They hold secure to the rail. Only time will tell just how rugged they are. But as of now, for the price, they can't be beat.

For what you get it's a great deal. It took absolutely forever to get here though, I'm talking maybe a month or so. But other than that great product. They don't feel like they're made out of chinesium. Pretty great fit and finish no burs anywhere all smooth. They just work. Out the box they seem fairly accurate. No adjustments and I was ringing steel with an ar47. Shocked me how expensive iron sights are, even polymer mbus will cost you a fortune. You can get both these front and back for the price of one mbus. My first build had carry handle sights and a fixed front so I never took it into consideration. But I made a relatively cheap build recently with no sights and felt it would be wasted had I gotten other brand name sights. So these were perfect. No issues at all. Highly recommend if you want to cheap out and have something that works. Ended up getting the front sight off ebay because it was a couple bucks cheaper. Budget, cheap, whatever you prefer to use they just work. I will say they do feel like they could snap if you bang em on something. I just fold them down whenever I transport the rifle. The detent ball is also some sort of plastic, maybe polymer though I'm sure its just plastic. Good size though, like a white powerbait ball. You'd deliberately have to hit the sight for them to snap. So take that for what it's worth. They have slight play but it's honestly very minimal. I was paranoid they'd be bulky and ugly but they're pretty low profile. Also no obnoxious l... Read More...

The sight itself is decent. you get what you pay for. However, i had a problem with this sight attaching to my rail. I put it on a 45 degree offset rail, and it would not fit. No matter how tight i tightened the screw, it wiggled. and then the screw stripped and it is stuck on my rail.

Sits well on my AR and adjusted perfect with my a2 front sight. Does what’s it’s made for and came quickly too. Seems fairly durable. Can’t go wrong with it for the price either, I believe it’s a really good investment if you don’t already have a rear sight.

This sight I purchased with the equivalent front sight. It is full metal and I can’t imagine why you would go anymore expensive. They flip up smoothly and after the button is push they easily fold down.

Nice set of sights rugged yet functional and a great price. Sights align well and seem to hold a zero. Shipping was not a bad speed considering the situation at hand. Have bought several sets for a few different rifle rigs.

These UTG backup sights are very well made. The machining is obviously high quality. The anodizing is even and nicely done. The folding mechanisms and windage adjustment are precise and smooth. An excellent value. I'll be buying more.

This back up sight does not take up much room and is pretty light. It seems like it is fairly sturdy although I do not like how the engagement button sticks out. If it got caught on something I do not think it would take much to bend. Also, the roller that locks the sight in the up position is plastic and I am not sure how long it will last before it gets worn down enough to be less effective. I personnaly think that there are a couple of improvements that could be made to the sight, but for the low cost it works fine.

Good price, arrived quickly, packaged well. Feels very solid. Attached to my AR15 very snug with no play. Very crisp function and doesn't feel like will wewr out quickly with heavy use. Plan to buy several more of these flip up sights in the future at this price. Feels very quality for the money. Would certainly recommend and will to friends in need of a rear flip up sight who don't want to pay $100+

I bought these to use as back up iron sights on my bushmaster. They look and function great. They are slick and have a low profile. Perfect option for anyone looking to add a pair of back up sights to their gun.

Best budget sights I have owned. I bought these to use on a budget build as backup sights, but I liked them so much I decided to use my red dot on another build, and just use sights only for the build I put these on. Definitely cant go wrong with these.

I have purched several of these in the last few years and have never had any issues. Why spend 2 or 3x as much money? Sure there are stronger sights for actual combat that would take more abuse but this is all 99% of us will ever need.

I have purchased several set of these sights from Leapers UTG. The price and the quality is great. I place these on all my customer builds. I have not have any complaints. They are very low profile and are great for back up sights. 5 Stars for sure.

I bought this flip up sight for a recent AR build. I wanted to stay under budget on the build, and have a nice set of back up sights. This is a great option! This sight is low profile and very sturdy. Pair this with the UTG Low Profile Flip-up Front Sight (MNT-755) and you won't be disappointed!

Sight made of metal, seems well made and sturdy. Easily installed on rifle easily & remained tight and zeroed after a couple of hundred rounds fired. Did notice a very tiny bit of front to back wobbled of sight during recoil, however the mounting connection remained solid and tight. The small wobble did not seem to effect accuracy at all. I paired it with the coordinating UTG Low Profile Front Sight and I was hitting within a 4" grouping at 50 yard with only these "open sights". Push button detent works well, I only wish it was spring loaded, but considering the price it is a good sight.

Sturdy. Not too heavy but not too light. Dual Apertures for people who have poor sight, you now have an option. So far, so good though. Only down side is adjusting the elevation is a little tricky if you don’t have the right tool.
