Is this the one...

http://www.m-aparts.com/productsDetail.asp?id=1108

And does co-witness mean that irons sights line up with the eotech dot ?? If so, how is it that they line right up? Or does co-witness just mean you can look through the optical sight to see the front sight... sorry.. new to all this. And, do I just mount this on my rail and it is lined up OK with the height of the EOtech which is also on the rail? I have the 517, which I think is 7mm higher than the 512.

I thought any standard height BUIS would. I have used an LMT CCH style BUIS, and I am now using a Matech. Both gave an absolute co-witness with my Eotech.

Patiently nothing! Mine just shipped today! Woo Hoo! Oy, yeah. The MBUS rear sight is $49.95, and the front is 39.95. The front MBUS sight should only be used on quad rails, not on gas blocks, due to issues with heat.

Ya, duh... after I asked that it dawn on me that the gun is pointed somewhere, and if the iron sights and optics are both on target, they point to the same thing... doh....

Ugh...wasn't planning on getting one, was hoping I'd get away w/ a MOE handguard and a polymerhandguard rail for a forward grip. Any advise for an inexpensive quad rail?
