Was looking for A2 BUIS. GG&G has one with a locking detent, but a bit more expensive than the BUIS from ARMS (Assuming it doesn't have a locking detent). Opinions? Should I pay the extra dough for the special feature. Looking to buy a GP AR with an aimpoint on a ARMS #22M68/extension.

The ARMS locks into place as well

I would just get the ARMS. It is spring loaded to be in the up position and has a locking lever to hold it down. I prefer this over the GG&G because if it does get hit very hard, it'll just bounce down and then back up where the GG&G will probably break the locking detent. YMMV

I hve arms #40 and i like it. haven't shot it much but she is on very securely and does not wigle at all, pops up real easy and stays in place. i agree with Ghost-Shooter i think the arms would resist breaking in a situation like that. when locked down it is out of the way and very sturdy.

PJC just types slower, give him a break

Howdy PJC, I got your email

If you get the ARMS get the 40A model. The ARMS 40 has a notch in the small apeture for long range shoting. It doesn't work well and is a distraction when using the small apeture. The 40A has the standard apetures just like your AR.

What everyone else has said about the #40..
I know you can swap ot the peeps for trijicon on the #40.
Does anyone know if you can do that with the GG&G???

What's the skinny on the #40L? How does it stack up to the #40A. I know the 40L is a low profile version, but is there any other advantages to this sight? Does it function and work as well as the #40A??? What are the differences between them???

If you have an EoTech mounted, which one would you rather use,40A or 40L, and why???

Would appreciate any advice you could provide.

Thx

Ok, I went to the ARMS website and now I'm slightly confused. The website shows a #40 Stand alone BUIS, and a #40 std A2 sight. Which one is best for a GP AR15 with an aimpoint?

FWIW, I'm one of those goofy fellas who likes the small app. We are out there

no one makes a good flip up BUIS

I've always wondered this...does keeping the ARMS BUIS in the down position for long term have any detrimental affects on the spring? For it to flip up, I assume that it is kept under constant compression, so does it wear out over time, in a similar manner to loaded mags? Thank you in advance for you're help.

Thanks for clearing that up for me.

I usually flex my #40 up and down two dozen times to keep the spring "fresh" ....I do this every time I'm cleaning the brass marks off of the deflector.
