What are the best flip up sights for a flat top M4? Are tritium sights worth the money? SEAN

What is a fortune to you? Folding Troy BUIS will run above $200, the fixed versions are less. It just depends how much you want to spend

Front sight post or railed gas block or rail mount?

You can't have it both ways. You can't get the best without spending money. Perhaps $200 isn't a fortune. If that is the case, get the troys.

If $200 is a fortune, then spend a fortune and get good sites.

You do have other options. GGG and YHM come to mind.

+1 for Troys. If you want to go cheaper, I like Magpul's MBUS sights. Congrats on the DDM4!

Troy Battlesights with Tritium. I run that on the rear and then put the Trijicon front A2 sight post also with Tritium. Botach and ebay seem to have the best pricing these days..

$200 is fine with me. Troy sounds like way to go.

Troy. If you really want to shell out some dough then Knights Armament.

I like the sight picture of the DOA rear and HK style front, I find I can get on target faster than with traditional rear peep sights.

I like the DOA rear but am undecided on the front. Is tritium worth the money? An extra $75 bucks.

That is a personal preference, I wanted the tritium version, but at the time Troy was backordered and I felt I wanted them vs needing them. So I just ordered the standard version.

Gotcha, trying to justify the extra expense. That is a personal preference, I wanted the tritium version, but at the time Troy was backordered and I felt I wanted them vs needing them. So I just ordered the standard version.

If you're using this as a HD carbine, or any type of low-light shooting, tritium is worth the cost. otherwise, no.

Then I say get 'em. I would have, if not for my impatience.

Here is mine (I felt the thread needed some porn;))

I've got the Troys as well but honestly, in retrospect, I scratch my head and wonder why I spent $200.00 + on "back up" sights that I rarely use. Could've gone Magpul for half the price and put the money somewhere else (more ammo, better optics, whatever). Guess the real question should be: How often do you plan on shooting with your flip up sights? If a lot, then Troy is hard to beat. If only "occassionally", than why burn up that much cash?

Just my own $.02, for whatever it's worth.

i second the troy DOA flip rear with the HK front...same setup i run except i got the fixed front cuz i like the style better than the folder and i have no need for it to fold down ever
