I would like your opinion on a folding BUIS that has elevation. What are people using? I see all the BUIS with windage but I would like both windage and elevation. I want to fit it under a 3X magnifier.

those two are adjustable for range, but do any BUIS have elevation adjustments so you can zero the rifle at a certain range without having to rely on an adjustable front post?

You can zero the MATECH to your hearts content at any of the ranges it allows, however most people zero at 25m and use a BIS only as a "Back Up" when the prime optic goes down.

Not sure why the front sight bothers you as even with a carry handle you use the front sight to adjust your elevation zero.

because it would go on a SIG556 that is using the fixed front sight that has no elevation adjustment.

Wilson Combat makes one that allows for elevation and windage adjustment.

I have that one, too. It's too bad I am "apperture sensitive" and can't build tight groups with that sight. Wilson Combat's BUIS really is good. Built like a tank. IMHO, if you are going to use it purely as a BUIS, the apperture will be just fine. but for building tight groups, not so much.
