    Magpul MBUS with Tritium

    Does anyone know if you can put a Trijicon tritium front sight post in the Magpul MBUS front sight?

    The H3 vials are worth more than the sight, but go for it.

    I'd say just go with DD Fixed with the normal A2 post, or the TROYs, but that is more expensive.

    The Trijicon sight uses a special retainer (the spring loaded post that engages the notches on the sight post to prevent it from turning) as the Trijicon sight has a base that allows the actual sight post to spin independently of the adjustment base, so that you can dial in your elevation, while keeping the tritium side of the FSP pointed towards you.

    I've modified the Troy flip up sights to accept the trits, (before they came out with thier own) I just don't know if it would be possible to use these in an MBUS and I don't currently have a MBUS to mess around with.

    I dont think it'll work. Looks like most of the time the detent ring on the sight is sticking above the body of the MBUS.

    Detent - That's the word I was looking for. Anyone else ever try this?

    The roll pin that comes with the MBUS should still act like the detent. As long as you get the post low enough for the pin to engage the post you should be fine.
