I am in the market for some buis for the SPR. I had thought I would always go with the KAC flip ups, but then I realized I don't need them to fold.

So I was thinking, there has got to be some quality fixed 45 degree buis for cheaper. Options? I checked online but there seems to be a lot of cheap ones I'm not sure I can trust.

I tried this in the optics section....got nothing. So I figured I'd give it a go here.

SureFire sells the Dueck ones, check them out.

Or, you have 45-degree offset RDS options, which you probably already know about.

Check out the GG&G ones, they're affordable and look like they would do the job well, though I've never used them.

xs sights xti sights. Big dots would be my preference.

I just picked up a pair of these to try. Mounted them but haven't shot yet... so far, they seem to be fast and will probably be precise enough out to 50 meters or so which is what I'm looking for.

Here is all four of their off set sights. It's at the bottom of the two rows. They have the standard dot and the big dot. Also the ones that are thirty dollars extra on their site have the tritium in the back. I prefer this. If you order direct from their site it may be more expensive than going off of a retailer. Also they show back ordered on their site so it may be better if you want them soon to buy them off of a retailer.

For practicality sake, I think the big dot is where it's at. For 45° offset, you're only going to be running them at close range... So contact distance out to 25 meters or so. For that kind of shooting, I want speed over fine precision so it's perfect. If I need more precision, I'll go to my ACOG.

fail safe sights

These work as replacement 0-300's the transition sights serve two purposes speed and a backup if the optical sights are fogged, off, broken, or colluded with rain or snow.

I bought a pair off of Amazon for like $25. Regardless what people think of the price, they have held zero and been overall great so far.

I have the dueck ones for $250 and the $25 amazon ones. The amazon ones for all i can tell are identical in everyway so far. I had the amazon ones for 3 months.

$20 bucks with 1k reviews at a 4.5 star rating.

It cant hurt to try, but I still would not trust them on a personal defense gun.

I run an ACOG and an Aimpoint Micro in a Larue LT-724 mount. Love it.

Hmm..Im thinking of getting a Micro/LT724 combo to run with a Trijicon 3-9 Accupoint. Saving money...is yours mounted on the top rail or side?
Link Posted: 8/3/2014 7:32:37 AM EDT
Mine is mounted just like this Larue pic:

I have these folding ones. Seem solid enough for back-ups.

I did the same. The adjustment knob on the rear site doesn't always click, but it moves appropriately. I find them acceptable for a backup, they seem better quality than the BUIS the Army issues.

I have the ACOG + offset T1 in the Larue mount. Personally, I think it is the best setup a person could have. Offset irons do not work as well in low light and they are slower than an offset T1.

I have the KAC 0-300y 45 degree offset on my rifle ... I have only sighted them in... but they work .

I'm going to give this set a try. Can't go wrong vs paying $200 plus for the top brands.

Those are the exact sites I bought. My only complaint is they don't fold.
Link Posted: 8/10/2014 2:16:46 PM EDT
I have the same set as well and agree with Rooster, it would be nice if they folded. Dirt cheap and they work.
