I have been contemplating building up an AR using one of these, but would like some opinions on what optics work well with it (if any) and what optics work poorly with it.

There are newer/better mounts that are cheaper. What sight system are you thinking about? Ray

I am thinking I want to start with a rock solid iron sight, and not be too limited later when mounting an additional tactical optic. This one looks like it meets the reliability requirement (maybe) but I don't have a feel for how much it limits flexibility. I am in the research stage at this point. I haven't owned or used any tactical optics before, and I have no desire to buy 2 or 3 before I get one I am happy with.

The purpose of the rifle is two fold: -A dependable firearm for use at the Gunsite Tactical Carbine course, which in turn is to have one very enjoyable weeks vacation. (The pistol course was awesome) -The second is to get great enjoyment from researching and building up a rifle suitable to the task. After that the rifle will be used for 3 gun matches and putting holes in paper. PS Troy, the ammo faq is awesome.

#1 Choice: ARMS 40 #1 Choice for non flip up rear: Cut Carry Handle or LMT rear sight After that you have "it fits under my big scope" sights like KAC 300m, KAC 600m, GGG A2, GGG MAD, etc. The sight you linked too has a rail which adds weight and is not needed. It also limits optics and mounts that will work with it.
