Political tags — such as royalist, communist, democrat, populist, fascist, liberal, conservative,
and so forth — are never basic criteria. The human race divides politically into those who want
people to be controlled and those who have no such desire.

Like on a camera, gotcha!

The smaller "aperture" still seems too big. No problem though, because my lil' red dot is sitting right on top of the front post. I am zeroed and ready to rock and roll! :)

You have to peel them apart too huh? On my MBUS, they look like they are one piece until you start to try and separate them. What looked like a seam was really a gap. :)

The sights on the carry handle of my AR are made like that in the pic - 90º offset. But my magpul sights are basically mating pieces. http://store.magpul.com/product/MAG248/44" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;
They could easily be mistaken for a single sight.
Contrary to popular belief, you CAN fix stupid - it's just illegal.

after reading about the 2 apertures i did some searching and found those pics, so tonight when i went into the safe i looked for something similar. after not seeing them i was slightly disappointed and i was like "dang, i d....son of a....there they are!". i have never claimed to be the brightest or most observant lol. it is so obvious on mine now that i know they are there, i have no freaking clue how i have never noticed them...

Yep, that's the Magpul I have. Once I pulled them apart I was like, "sweet"!

too busy rofling.
Never attribute to malice that which can be explained by stupidity.
The shooter will always matter more than the gear ever will.
Stop relying on others to do the work for you.
Shoot more, worry less.
