For duty, I got a Troy fixed rear. It up and ready when I pull it out of the case and its very accurate. Plan on getting an XS front soon.

I own 2 bushmaster a1's circa 1999 that have been flawless. I only use iron because they will never see any use beyond 100 yards, SelfDefense or otherwise. The only additive as been a magpul afg.

* I use the afg as a grip... I do not use it as a platform to grip the handguard like a fire hose like its intended. I like to form up behind the rifle and get small.. I dont and wont do all this boxer stance/ firehose thing.. I am just too old skool for the new kool.

Options are a good thing but iron sights never lose battery power or shatter.

Seen two Matechs break, and an A2 rear fall out.

It 'can' happen....... highly unlikely, but never say never.

Make sure to let them know you're Leo. I think it drops the price to like $25

I believe they're very important. However, I prefer red dots for the speed. My irons are zeroed for 50 yards.

Over Magpul? You (or someone else) has tried both and feels the same?

I have multiple sets of each and seriously I don't have a preference b/w the two.

I have a 20 inch A2, and a M-4 that will only ever run irons. Use them for teaching/preping soldiers for quals.


Aside from that, I'd never outfit a rifle for serious purpose that was solely equipped with irons.

I have a set of Troy BUIS on my M&P15T that came with the gun. I also have a set of GG&G BUIS on one of my Armlites. The difference between the two is pretty obvious when you look close at them side by side, and shooting proves it out (both guns shoot pretty much the same with optics on them).

The Troy's dont lock up solid and have a lot of play in them. They work OK for what they are, but if thats all youre planning on using, Id look for something else.

Well, in my opinion, there is a reason they call them back up iron sights (BUIS), because they are back ups.

I've got an aimpoint on my PSA, and an eotech on my colt. What is best? Well, it is all about have options.

I had an Aimpoint PRO but traded it for ammo and mags. Maybe someday I'll buy another optic but for now I like it lightweight and simple.

If real life was always well lighted, with bright painted targets and my eyes were what they were at 20, irons would rule for me.

Even with younger eyes, it's a challenge.

The joys of clearing rooms in semidarkness with an A2 compared to an M68 equipped M4 will give you a quick heads up on that......
