I plan on using a Larue fixed BUIS as my only sighting system on my carbine until the day i can spring for an ACOG or some such device. Any reason not to do this?

Is there anything I'd have with an A2 upper that I won't get with such a system (anything good that is)? I've been using an A2 for awhile and that's what I shoot for the Army.

Maybe it's just the fact that it's called a BACKUP iron site and I plan on using it as a primary iron site (we can call it a PIS if you're dying for an acronym ;0 ).

thanks

I've been using my ARMS "buis" as a "pis" for over a year now. Doing it for financial reasons. Don't have the cash for the optic I'd like to have. Which is OK really. I think you should be skilled with irons before using optics anyhow. This way it's unavoidable!

I have been using a LaRue BUIS by itself for about the last two months because I'm holding out for the LaRue Cantilever Aimpoint mount. I actually have grown to really like and be very quick with my irons alone.

When I bought my first Ar I knew eventually I would get an Aimpoint or Eotech adn I would need a BUIS anyway so I used an ARMS 40 that was great and still sits as a backup now. As long as you buy quality you are set.

I am in the same boat...kinda. I got a LMT buis that I am using until I can buy a Aimpoint but everytime I get the money I buy some other new gun or a new gun part for my post AWB build, or somthing for my car or something for my wife or something for my daughter or I break something on my mountain bike or I total my wife's Isuzu Rodeo or...well you get the idea.

I think I am so used to Irons now that I really don't need a optic, not like that is gonna stop me though
