He makes more money than I do or we'd be in a race :)

I'm not sure I'm a fan of this mod but then again I like the low profile BUIS setups. I can see where this makes sense to a lot of folks, but the price for a good BUIS isn't too much so I'll stick with the LP series BUIS for my AR's.

Pro's:

Cool DIY project
Money already spent so no additional cost
Functional
Great for co-witnessing with a CQB optic

Con's:

Snag factor with the mounting
Takes up more rail space
Fixed positioning and hight may preclude any use of a typical optic beyond a CQB optic


Just my ever so humble thoughts

I'm still learning :p

It seems to be a popular mod and has a market ;) LMT, DPMS, and others make a version of this.

I like this style of sight behind an Aimpoint, but I prefer a fold down behind my EoTech since it has more than a "dot".

I have 6 AR's and a 7th started, each is a carbine but different from the last.

Why the face? You're starting #7 I'm hovering on 4 1/2 :)
#7 will take a little longer now...just spent the $ for the lower on this ACOG TA50-2 :D





it should be in my hot little hands Wed/Thurs

The whole build just changed, this is the LMT upper I posted about a few weeks ago. Have a LMT buis on the way for it to go with the Aimpoint but now that buis won't work with the ACOG.

Now I'm thinking about chopping my carry handle. I only got the carry handle so I'd have a rear sight, but I always wanted more of a buis.

Like I said, you make more than I do :) I wouldn't mind an ACOG, just can't bring myself to spend more on the optic than the rifle!!!!!!! Though I'd like to hear what the eye relief actually ends up being on that setup once you have it rigged.

OK back to the original question. :D

For me it depends on what type of optic this BUIS is going behind.

For a red dot type (aimpoint) that is either absolute or lower 1/3 co-witness, Yes I like them

For an Eotech, no...the reticle is too large. With the Eo I like a fold down.

Behind a magnified scope, no again....fold down.
