OP what he said^^^^ to some it up the real one has a matte flat finish, the airsoft fake is a bit smaller in size and has a glossy finish. I have both, believe or not it still functions the same when you mount them. But still I down want airsoft products on my babies!Hope this helps sum.

"pts" version is the air soft, and made in hong kong. Apparently they have less tolerance/ quality etc. or so I'm told. I refuse to put any of that on my ar. Made in usa baby!

The real one is like 55-60 bucks every where I looked.

The airsoft version probably doesn't take heat resistance into account. Seems like a component that you don't want melting on you, IMHO.

The real one is like 55-60 bucks every where I looked.

$33.20 at Brownells and almost every other place I looked.

Oh I thought we were talking about the BUIS cause they make the airsoft version of those too.

Ok, the PTS is crap. It is great airsoft stuff for kids. But it is not anywhere close to the real Magpul items. With the AFG it doesn't matter all that much. But the sights are shoddy, and won't hold up to a real gun. I have both, as I put the PTS on an airsoft gun. And it is toy-quality crap. The only thing that makes it acceptable is the fact that I am, in deed, using it on a toy. One that doesn't really need pinpoint precision.

And the PTS version will probably cost you more than the firearm version.
