    Brownells is out of stock. Where's the next best place to buy? I checked THT's site, looks like he's out too.

    You'll have better luck finding a used one due to the ARMS lawsuit

    this too.

    Ty, have they completely stopped producing them and shipping them out? Wish I would have bought more than 2 sets when they first came out, for the great price

    Yep, Magpul hasn't produced any for over a month now

    I have a set of OD, one front FDE and five rear foliage left.

    Yeah, I've been watching there. I actually just missed one. Oh well, I'll keep checking.

    I'll give Midway a try too.

    try CALLING brownells too. I've noticed that a lot of times, the website isn't always acurate and they might actually have some in stock. I actually called them before they were even released and they already had them in stock, just not on the site.

    I'll trade you my black MBUS for an EOTech, straight swap. I'll even cover the shipping, both ways.

    What a coincidence I have an Eotech earmarked for just such a trade. I'll pack it up tonight. :h5:

    IIRC, ARMS is suing Magpul over the MBUS.

    It's a folding sight, just like their ARMS #40 BUIS

    LOL!

    So...shouldn't Troy and every other company with a folding rear sight be involved in the lawsuit?

    In other news I guess this means my rear MBUS is now worth $500.

    Might be due to the spring-loaded configuration. Do Troy's have that?

    Meh, Magpul will just tweak the design and then the original MBUS will become the "old and busted" and the later rev will become the "new hotness".

    I don't care what I get I just want it to be cheap. I'm only using it as a backup site. I'd bet good money the thing will spend it's entire life folded at the back of my upper.
