Alright, looks like I'll be pulling the trigger on a BA 50 tomorrow or the next day. I'm undecided on glass for now, but I'll probably go with a SS for a while. When thinking about optics I realized that BUIS were not included with the BA 50 from the factory. Anyone have any suggestions for irons on a .50? Thanks in advance.

I'm just going to use buis from an AR.

I don't have my optics set up yet.

Not planning on it. However, sometimes I like to shoot "long distance" (300 yds or so) with irons. Seems like a pretty decent reason to me. Now, suggestions? Will AR style irons work?

A robust set of AR irons will work fine...it's a flat rail on the BA50...hell a BUIS front sight and an AR carryhandle should even work fine.

I shoot plenty of irons out to 600 yards...but with a Service Rifle AR or a FAL, not with a 50 BMG at $3-$5/shot.
