Shall I replace my removable LMT fixed A2 rear sight on my M4gery?

Arguments for replacement :
**- Heavy and bulky **
*- Takes up a lot of space *
- I'm shooting less than 200 yards
- A2 large aperture seemed to big for my 'style' of shooting

Arguments against replacement (retain) :
- sturdy and rugged

Setup and Application :
- Fixed front sight; M4 barrel 1/9 BM
- Flat top upper receiver
- Shooting less than 200 yards
- No immediate plan to mount optical sight
- Would prefer a dual apperture - single plane system
- IPSC and target plinking
- Fixed or flip-up; BUT Rugged and sturdy

Previous experiences with Rear sights :
- Wilson Combat Flip-Up (sold to a friend)
- A1 upper - no longer used
- Troy FBS-RA1 on flat top (currently used) -- I really like this sight - dual apperture yet Single plane

Please post your suggestions and opinions on which possible sight(s) are applicable.

Note : I have read the Big Bad BUIS FAQ, but I can't still make up my mind.

Keep it. Learn to use it.  Another change will not likely make the rifle magic. Skill from dedication will.

Remember if you use the Improved Battlesight Zero, you can achieve the same plane effect by clicking the elevation wheel 4 clicks when you change apertures.

I opted for the Troy because it suits my needs the best.

I would NOT replace it.  It is a top quality, no BS rear sight.

Keep it, and install a same-plane aperture.
