My best recommendation is the troy industries, followed closely by midwest, gg&g and yankee hill machine. I own more Troys, but like the others as well, all are military grade.

troy industries if you can get them. Magpul a close second choice.

Thank you all for your imput.
With Troy and Magpul being to two most recommend.
I decided to go with the Magppul, all the other add-ons are Magpul so I guess I will go with the flow.
Thanks agian for all the suggestions

The factory Ruger sight is pretty much a Magpul knock off. Upgrading to a Magpul sight will be a waste of money. I personally use Knights Armory 200-600 yard rear sights, best sight you can buy!! Also we used them in the Marines, that should be reason enough.

The Magpul MBUS offers dual apertures which the OP was asking for. The Ruger AR 556 sight does not.
