    Default AR rear sight/carry handle?

    Alright, so I'm probably gonna end up with some kinda AR-15. I'm looking at the PSA PA-15 16'' Nitride M4 Carbine: https://palmettostatearmory.com/psa-...rifle-fde.html

    These come without any sort of rear sight, or at least one isn't pictured on their website. Some options I've seen as high as $200, which seems steep, for iron sights, anyway, but what do I know? I'm also probably a weirdo, but I actually like the carry handle. What's my cheapest option that isn't complete junk, carry handle or not?

    PSA carry handle has mostly all good reviews $69...

    Non carry handle would be Magpul rear mbus at this time$54/$60ish
    Ruger Rear fold up sight $36
    https://www.amazon.com/Ruger-90415-R.../dp/B00CJJAKV4
    or a number of good Red Dots from $99 & up

    You can sometimes find them in the classifieds here.

    I have a PSA AR. Never had an issue with it.

    Also bought a PA10 from them that had to go back for a feeding issue. They have excellent customer service.

    If you only have one AR, and you want a carry handle, get a flat top with a removable handle.

    I bought the PSA because it has the best reputation for fit, rear sight quality and matching the coating on Colts.

    Another vote for the PSA carry handle, its $69.00 with free shipping right now. They are quality made and the correct height. Most of the cheap $25-$40.00 ones are Chinese made and out of spec when using it with a standard A2 front sight post. I know this 1st hand.

    What’s the weight difference? Magpul mbus sets seem to be dirt cheap a few weeks after every time I buy them.
