I have a Sig 522 and an MBUS. I want to order a front sight for it, but I want to make sure I get the right one. Most of the sights I see are specifying they are picatinny rails. Anyone have any recommendations fro a front sight that will work with what I have?

*Sorry. I've mainly been shooting an AR with a scope and have not touched my Sig in a long time.

You need a dove tail front sight that works with Sig 556/522.

To be able to use your MBUS, you need a front sight that compatible with AR-15 sight height. Like this one from Midwest Ind.:
MI SIG 556 Folding Front Sight (http://www.midwestindustriesinc.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=category.display&category_ID=222)

or this one from Samson Mfg:
Quick Flip FFS SIG - Folding Front Sight for the Sig 556 Sight (http://www.samson-mfg.com/ar-15_html/product/QF-FFS-SIG.html)

If you are not limited to AR-15 sight height, Sig has a solid set of sights:

It's quoted for $70 shipped directly from Sig.
