Default Yankee Hill Q.D.S Sights...gtg? or go with Troy?

Wanted some input on the Yankee Hill Q.D.S sights. are they gtg? The only issue I see is some pictures show in the down position that the smaller peep sight sticks up a little. I am thinking of mounting a scope on my AR but am concerned about this interfering with the setup I want. Mainly, that I want as low of a profile of scope to the base and want to know the actual height of the small peep sight to the base.

Yankee Hill mentions this, "When folded the sight measures just .435 inches from the rail." I am not if this is including the small peep sight jutting up.

How do these compare to Troy?

I can get the YH Q.D.S sights for $130 and the Troy's are $200. $70 dollars is a lot but will sacrifice in the name of quality

I have the YHM QDS and love them. I do not have any experience with the Troy.

You can get them from Brightflashlights.com

When folded the small peep will not protrude above the main sight body. The sight however will not fold down flush if you are using the small peep you would have to flip the 50 meter sight back to the position in the picture.
