    Honestly I am not really sure. I could get the front one to slide on my rail but not the back one. I think if you spent a little time with a file you could make them work

    Magpul licenses an authorized line of airsoft sights (PTS sights).

    I have a description from Magpul that explains the difference. With your permission I can post it for you.

    Ok, here is what I have.

    "1. The Magpul MBUS is made from our custom blended polymer as used in the PMags, The PTS sights use off the shelf DuPont polymer which is not as strong. (Is there a difference? -most definitely yes)
    2. Aperture on rear sights for Magpul MBUS is always black, PTS sights have rear apertures the same color as the sights.
    3. Front sight posts is smaller in width than milspec.
    4. Front sight rotation is stopped with a roll pin on the Magpul MBUS and a set screw on the PTS sights.
    5. All hardware on Magpul MBUS is mil spec grade and coated to mil spec standards. PTS sights use off the shelf hardware with stock coatings.
    6. PTS sights are marked as such on the front of the bases to avoid confusion between the two.

    The PTS sights are made to a high standard compared to most other Airsoft items but they are not to be used in an operational environment. Could you put PTS sights on a plinker 22 and hit cans with them? Yes they will probably work, but if you are using your rifle for serious work then buy the real tools for the job.".........Magpul.

    Magpul marks all PTS sights with the "PTS" logo and it is my understanding that they are made overseas while MBUS sights are USA made. Also, I have been told that Magpul does not sell their sights in sets (two sights in a single box) but that they are always sold separately.
