    I've got a 10.5" SBR that I'm looking to put a carry handle on. I can get an Aero Precision for $80, but I was hoping to find one for a little less money. PSA has been out of stock on their carry handles for a while now. I ran across Standard Mfg and they have one for $40 and it says that's made in the USA. Any thoughts on this: https://stdgun.com/a3-carry-handle-rear-sight-milspec/

    Any other places I should look?

    You want a legit mil spec one, $80 sounds right. Anything less is imitation airsoft grade.

    Ask about the forging marks on the handle

    That’s great, but I don’t know what any of that would tell me.

    If it has a forge marking it would mean it is made by a legit company. No forge marks are often Chinese made airsoft grade.

    Spend the money and get a quality sight. The STD model is Chinese junk with an improper shelf height

    If that doesn’t work out for you I have one I’d part with.

    Jump on the colts. That's a good price when everything is cheap and plentiful.
