    I will probably keep the sights for a while. First thing I would probably do would be new hand guard, but at first just getting used to the platform.

    Couldn't tell you. Break is crisp, take-up is short. I'm happy with it.

    CMMG - you can't go wrong. The colored baggies helps out first time builders along with veteran builders. They also now sell a kit minus the trigger parts, so you can add your own premium drop in.

    I've only had experience with the first gen Magpul sights (MBUS), so I can't speak to the Gen II. Great concept, piss-poor execution (I had 2 sets snap off the rails), which was surprising because everything else I've ever gotten from Magpul was good kit. Now, I usually run Troy flip ups in the back and a DD fixed front sight.

    Most cheaper parts kits are verrrry similar. Cmmg makes a good kit. I’ve used them and B5 and I can’t tell the difference.

    The current gen magpul stuff is very good.

    I'm running a Troy flip up front sight;

    And a military issue rear sight;

    [​IMG]

    I've had no problems hitting a C-Zone size target (11" wide) at 450yds once these are zeroed. The rear sight is nice, as you zero with the hash mark for 300yd at 25yd, then you can just adjust for range whenever you need. Easy peazy.

    I have heard CMMG makes LPKs for lots of companies that re-brand them.

    Since we are talking Irons..this is what I have..it is ingenious, but I rarely use it. It is a double dual sight. It has 2 sets of peep sights and 2 sets of open sights. And it folds down perfectly

    I've got a MaTech sitting in my parts box. My magnifier doesn't clear it.

    +1 for Troy iron sights. I also like to pair the Troy front sight with a rear from Rock River Arms. That is what I normally recommend to people inquiring about irons.

    There was a discussion I recall from several years ago on M4C.net. Someone compared a bunch or parts kits and found a bunch of them all contained identical components (same casting marks, etc). The conclusion was that, similar to receivers, almost all are made by just a few manufacturer's, they are just repackaged for retail. I'll try to find the info. It was pretty interesting how many "manufacturers" are selling parts that all originated in the same place.

    Yep, just like Anderson manufactures 70% of the lowers on the market.

    And when you mention Anderson, the gear whores with a lower that started its life in their forge turn their noses up and scoff...
