So, call me an idiot or "question my build", but I have mine on backwards. Keep seeing people say there are no benefits to having them on backwards. What are the benefits to having them on the "right way"? I saw someone say less prone to snagging... okay that makes sense. What else? I can still flame long shots all the same.

Less snagging and simpler for the adjustments. But on the other hand, backwards front sight means slightly longer sight radius, and on really short rails that makes a difference.

Which way are you saying is correct? Facing the same direction or towards each other?

I'm impressed. This thread has been necroed 3 times now! That's gotta be pretty rare, if not a record. At what point is it a zombie thread?

Although, it does provide a service to the ignorant . . .

Your sites are optimized for performance when installed per the manufacurers design.
Standardizing equiptment allows for any soldier to pick up that weapon and operate it without having to decipher the "good idea fairys" great new idea and vice versa.
It's your weapon you rock it how you like.

My friend shared a picture of his build which has the front MBUS on backwards. I searched the collective knowledge of the internet and this thread was one of the top results.

My friend said that he put the front MBUS on backwards to increase the sight radius. I prefer the correct way.
 
They'll snag much easier if installed backwards. There is ZERO point in doing so as well.
