Instead of buying a back up sight, I was thinking about buying an A.R.M.S. Swan Sleeve (super long 14'')to so I can mount and Aimpoint or Eotech far foward toward the handguards. Does anyone have an A.R.M.S. Swan Sleeve? Does it get hot and put your sight at risk for heat damage? Is it solid? Any help, tips or suggestions appreciated.

Thanks for any help.

The ARMS #38 is still very good option for a BUIS and a riser variation because it is rock solid and an excellent design. As far as heat transfer? It probably offers the best protection from heat from conduction. From radiant heat it probably offers close to the same protection as any out there due to proximity to the barrel and a solid tube design will work the best from direct exposure.

Almost no heat transfer here too. It's solid enough for a forward mounted dot sight, but I like being able to grab the handguards. On a carbine that's harder to do as the ARMS#38s-ex extends to the front sight. Another minus is that the weight of the full length Swan Sleeve + forward optic doesn't balance as well as, say... an ARMS#38ex & Aimpoint (to me anyways).

Here's where it's parked for now: [img]http://www.imagestation.com/picture/sraid77/p3bfb554eee04a2d3e9e6c1b3d047a56f/fb39cef7.jpg[/img] Lots of unused metal hanging out there...
