  1. Yeah, but if its a fixed rear sight then wouldn't you have to elevate the optic? Or can you use the optic when it is center cowitnessed?
  2. Interesting! I was assuming I wanted flip up but I like that. It does require lower 1/3 Co witness setup, though.
  3. The Troy sight looks a lot like the discontinued PSA sight I have. I prefer that A2-like style.
  4. I found this aluminum BUIS pair: Feyachi Flip Up Iron Sight Front Rear Sight Compatible for Picatinny Rail and Weaver Rail of Rifle, Foldable Sights https://www.amazon.com/Feyachi-Compatible-Picatinny-Weaver-Foldable/dp/B07NQ5VV7D
  5. Flattop. I don't care about how it flips up so long as it is sturdy when up. The one I have is very much like the A2 rear sight with the dual-apertures and windage but not elevation (which is done on the front sight).
  6. Unfortunately, DPMS is owned by Remington which is in the financial doghouse at the moment, not sure if they are still alive: https://www.remingtonoutdoorcompany.com/dpms-firearms
  7. I am looking for a metalic, probably aluminum, metallic rear BUIS for a rifle with an A2 front sight. Last time I got one from PSA but they discontinued that model replacing it with a polymer sight. What do you recommend?
  8. Trijicon makes a LPVO scope, the Accupoint series, that features a fiber optic illuminated reticle which ought to be bright in proportion to the daylight. I'm surprised nobody else is doing this. The problem, of course, is that this is a $1400 scope. Trijicon AccuPoint 1-6x24 Riflescope https://www.trijicon.com/products/details/tr25-c-200090
  9. https://cameralandny.com/shop/athlon-optics-argos-btr-1-4x24-ahsr14-ffp-ir-mil/2e5f24e0-9bca-0135-032e-00163ecd2826?variation=1618144&query=argos btr 1-4x24 It looks good but not clear it is "daylight bright".
  10. Interesting idea! I will mull it. Given that this is not a no-brainer I've decided to build a plain red dot rifle first, probably a 'budget' red dot, and then come back to looking for an LPVO after I've had some experience with that.
  11. I will suggest that to my friend, thanks.
  12. We tried a variety of ammos including handloads and match ammo. I don't know about the crown but we did use a tool to smooth out the upper receiver face before mating. I was expecting sub-MOA but we got maybe 1.5 MOA at 100 yards.
  13. A few years ago I helped a friend build a target rifle around a Krieger 20” HBAR DCM barrel with 7.7 twist. It had a nice scope, fancy trigger, stock with a riser, etc. His goal was to build a tack driver. But when we went to the range it turned out to be only marginally more accurate than my delton pencil barrel. Disappointed! (Both of us got the same results, we can't both be such bad shots, I think.) What do you think went wrong?
  14. I was hoping that the scope could extend the rifle out to the practical limit of around 500 yards though in practice probably more like 200-300. I could imagine using this for coyotes where I'm mostly taking close shots but a longer shot might open up. I've actually watched that one. The problem is that it's essentially what I have already in the ACOG/RMR setup which is primariy distance and secondarily close. I want to reverse that with the LPVO and make shooting close the primary mission of the rifle and longer shots an extra capability. (If I were designing an offset it would have a red dot on top and a 45 offset scope.) I can't really imagine using a magnified scope for self defense. I am thinking about another rifle build that will be pure red dot and probably a 16"/collapsable stock.
