Thanks! I’ve been studying the works of the famous photographer “ Stickman”.

Yes, it is a good back up sight, I have one also but since I have no optic at this point, I run the carry handle.

If you want to leave the carry handle on, then that's fine. If you want to run the back up sight instead, that is fine too. You can't run both at the same time if that's what you're wondering.

Whats the Pros and Cons of the MA TECH BUIS?



So you are posting on a large, public forum that your dad stole a piece of military equipment and gave it to you?!? Granted that's probably how most of these have ended up on e-bay and other sales forums, but come on man use your damn head. At the very least you're admitting your dad is a thief and you are no better.

I have one on my A4gery. My only complaint is the windage knob is too close to the charging handle. Other than that, they are very nice.

YOu are a presumptive ass. Maybe you should IM this bullshit. It is quite probable that Dad purchased it off the EE or Ebay prior to going over to the sandbox.

I bought two Matechs off the EE, one for $80 and the other for $100. They are good hardware. If you aren't running an optic, I would suggest not using the Matech. If you leave the post up and your gun gets dropped, you will probably be in deep doo doo. It is a backup sight. Not a primary sight.

Anyone who’s been in the military knows that things can be obtained over time. For example mags. When I ETS’d in 1992 I was told to keep my 7-30 rd mags I was issued……and I did.

The unit I was assigned to after the Gulf War bought a bunch of crap during the build up which they ended up not using. Drop lights, extension cords, even a Singer sewing machine! The CO said take it home or it’s going in the trash dumpster!

Somewhere in Iraq there is an infantryman going into harm's way with no BUIS.

My experiences were similar.

When I was part of recovering a crashed bomber, the wing finance officer carried $50,000 in cash to the site, to be used at commander’s discretion, for whatever they deemed appropriate to getting the mission accomplished. We bought all kinds of equipment, tools, supplies, and when we were done, it was given away, because it was non-accountable property, and most the Sqdns didn’t want the hassle of adding it to inventory and/or it was not authorized for their unit. I tried turning in a case of smoke grenades not acquired through our military acquisition process. Was told to get it off base and never mention it again.

As far as personal equipment, it depends on the individual unit. I got to keep almost all of my USAF flying gear, except the parachute. Probably $3000 in gear. Some of it was custom fitted, but most of it was not, like survival knife, sunglasses, hack watch, flight clothing, kneeboards, flashlight etc, etc.

+1

When I was deployed to Desert Storm our Aviation Life Support Equipment NCO came down with a huge box of survival vest items, survival knifes, magnesium fire starters ect, ect. A shit load of things that he had extra that he knew we could make good use of……these things were given to us to keep.

.....and somewhere another arfcommer is wetting the bed over it.

Anybody who has managed an Inspector General's inspection knows that extra gear disappears. You will get in deep doodoo for it, regardless of what channel it is obtained or traded through. This gear goes home with people that can use it, or it goes in the trash. Every fucking day.

Get over yourselves. At least some welfare momma with 4 offspring didn't get it and aren't selling it on ebay for crack money.

Also to the original poster, get a correct mount for placing it on the flat top. You will immediately be able to use the BUIS. You will probably be able to find a used one cheap.
