Magpul MBUS

How do you tell the Airsoft from the real?







Are they the same?
They are licensed?

I noticed the same exact thing a while back when i was buying a bunch of stuff for a magpul OD build. I think if you look on their site, there is a difference in model number. Slickguns.com is constantly showing that deal on amazon.

You purchase from a reputable dealer like www.DSGArms.com , www.skdtact.com , etc.

Yes, the PTS is licensed, no it is not the same. The PTS stuff is made overseas to lower quality specs, since it's intended for airsoft guns.

I don't think you can buy magpul sights in pairs you have to buy them separate.

Only the air soft stuff comes in a box in pairs like that, all the magpul sights I have seen lately have come in a bag.

Word! I got mine from Bravo. It's not worth the worry if they are fake or not to save a few bucks.

Are they marked so you can see the difference?

If you buy them new--yes the package is marked. If not, you can absolutely feel a difference. The PTS plastic feels cheap and they don't open and close smoothly like normal MBUS sights.

I haven't experienced it first hand but there was talk about non PTS/labeled knock-offs floating around

No it's not at all. I was browsing eBay and saw the PTS for somewhere around $25 for a pair. Almost hit the buy it now button but they sounded too good to be true. Turns out that was the case.
