Buis

What do you guys recommend for BUIS. I like the idea of the choped carry handle LMT's, but not sure if I want the bulk. I want a rear sight that can be used as a stand alone sight, as it will be my new primary sight for a good while. To both get very familiar with it, and to allow me to save money for a optic I want. My concern with the LMT is the bulk, my concern with flip up sights is the hinge point. While I might not be going to any classes any time immediatly soon I do want the BUIS to be a durable one. So what do you guys recommend?

If you like the chopped carry handle, I really like my Daniel Defense A1.5...I kinda just like the way it looks I think...
But it's very well made, super light, and I scored it for very cheap. You wouldn't have any durability problems.

The DD1.5 is a very good fixed BUIS. Another, that is similar to the LMT, is the Yankee Hill Machine (YHM) A2 BUIS. It has the same adjustments as the LMT, but not a bulky. It is extremely well made.

Here is what it looks like mounted in conjunction with an Aimpoint M2.

The setup works extremely well providing a lower 1/3 co-witness. So, should you ever decide to mount a red-dot optic, keep that in mind.

Though when adding a scope needed a fold down and opted for the Troy... If I would have stayed with a Aimpoint RD would have kept the DD.

I have a gg&g flip up sight that I ran for a while that served its purpose but I sold my eotech 517 and added some long rails. I put on a set of Daniel defense fixed sights and I like them.

I'm not really a fan of the magpul mbus sights. The sights are a little overbuilt because they're plastic but the rear sight is slow for switching between apertures. The little leafs are not very sturdy.

Like most things you get what you pay for.

I use a LaRue LT103, though a Troy is an excellent folding rear which can be a standalone.

I'm seriously considering not running BUIS anymore.


With all the advances in red dots, lasers, and good variable power optics, I'm not really seeing a need or a use for them.

Well since I run a IR/Vis laser on my work rifle, and soon my training gun, and I've got an optic, even if the optic fails, I can still shoot and make hits out to 50-75m by putting the target centered in the tube, and shooting. Or using the laser to aim. Or using both methods at the same time.


The other way I like to run, is with an ACOG, or variable optic, and both of those preclude the use of BUIS, unless you remove the optic first. And if you're actually in a gunfight, the chance of doing that, isn't all that common.

I second the GG&G MAD flip up. They work and fold low so they are out of the way.
