Anyone try the ARMS polymer sights? Very curious about these as I don't feel it's necessary to drop $200 on sights for a scoped bench gun.

I just recieved these from amazon. Thinking of sending them back. Never mounted them. They wont work for my stag 3 upper as the gas block dove tail can get hot and these are a composite poly blend.

Bottom of box says "Do Not Mount To Dovetail Gas Blocks"

But otherwise they seem well built. If you have a free float front quad this should work.
Im also interested in selling these. As i just purchased the UTG's.
PM if you are interested

^^^Hmm.. I actually subsscribe to that guy's blog and didn't realize these were the sights he was talking about:o
Thanks for pointing that out. I guess I'll either man up and get real sights, or pick up the trusty old MBUS.

I have two set on my rifles .they work great.just Like magpul ones,do not mount on gas block,becuase of heat. Bought them on ebay.I think they where 75 bucks a pair.I also have Troy ones too,But those are almost three hundred for as pair. So for 75 buck they are great.
