I'm shopping for a BUIS, I was going to get the a.r.m.s. 40L sight, but the troy looks good as well.  Any reason to pick on over the other?

Get what ever is cheaper so you can spend money else where...

Neither.  The GG&G MADD sight is lower than both (I think).

Timinator,

I had a #40L mounted with a Super Sniper scope and with the rear Butler Creek cap on the scope, it contacted the sight. I now have the Troy Dual-Aperture on this rifle and it easily clears the scope and end cap.



The GG&G may be lower, I have no experience with it.

oh yeah..that's my setup: Troy rear BUIS + SPR Larue mount + SS scope...

I have both.  The Troy is about 1mm lower.  They are both great sights.  There is little or no substantive difference between the two.   The only thing I can think of is that the Troy defaults to the large aperature while the ARMS defaults to the small one.

The Troy also has more difficult to adjust but more resistant to tampering windage knob and it locks up solidly which I prefer.  I have never seen a Troy sight broken because it locks in the up position.  I used a 40L on my rifle quite a while and prefer the Troy in every way but its blue color.

Agreed.

And all of my Troys are a really dark, deep black in color?

And while you have the tools out, you might want to tap that pin back in on the side of the lower...

excuse my ignorance but won't their be an issue due to the BUIS mounted on top of a swan?  Basically, won't the BUIS be too high for the FS?

I ask because I just ordered:
ARMS #40 "stand alone" BUIS
ARMS #22m68 with cantilever spacer
Aimpoint Comp M2

All this to go on to a RRA flat-top upper with standard FS.  Do I need to adjut myy order accordingly?

And rotate the flip up caps on the unit so they open down instead of up so they dont block your  vision around the sight.

With that super elivation, a long day maybe not at the range, the FAA would have contacted the local police to nvestigate reports re. someone shooting at aircraft.
