I have blown the budget in building AR's since the ban went away like a bad dream.

I have a mid - length flattop that needs some sights. It will be a while before I buy a Eotech or Aimpoint....

So which BUIS should I get knowing it will be the actual sight of the gun for a while (prob till santa comes)?

I have seen the BUIS - FAQ - I am more confused.

Please help.

I would (and did) get the LMT BUIS. I like it the best because it is a BUIS but more like a primary sight because it is basically a cut down A3 Carry handle, just beefed up a little. It has the dual apperatures and also a elevation adjustment. This is the only BUIS I personally would get to use as a primary sight.

Do you want fixed or folding?

LMT rear would be a good fixed that is availble with no wait.

Troy dual aperature is coming out in a week or so.

LMT is nice, as is the LaRue. I'm going to vote for the Cav-Arms BUIS. It's also a fixed up BUIS with the A1 style windage adjustment. Just set and forget - it's unlikely you'll ever need or want to go changing the elevation settings for your carbine and the A1 system prevents people from dicking with the sight settings.

Simple, effective, and very inexpensive.

I've got the GG&G MAD buis on mine and it does exactly what it is supposed to do. Could only be happier if I had the one with tritium inserts.

Troy,ARMS and KAC for flip up and LMT for fixed. IMO

What about the Matech? It has height adjustment?

I have a ARMS #40, and I like it.

How about a cut down A2 carry handle? What makes the LMT different (read more $$) than that?

Proven fragile in military use. They usually command "collectors" prices that would allow you get something of high quality.

Can you explain this further? In what way are they fragile?

I'm running a group buy on custom-made fixed A1 BUIS, by CNC Gunsmithing.
