    Looks great Grunt! Do you like that rear sight better the Magpul BUIS or did you have something else on it before?

    It came with the MagPul, I switched out because the LaRue is very robust. The rear sight aperture is a design from Paul Howe out at CSAT. Google it and I think you'll agree it's a pretty good setup. Paul is a retired Delta operator and he put a lot of thought in the design.

    I've run the same rear BUIS for a few years, it is a very solid and well made piece of kit. It pairs up well with a no-magnification RDS like an Aimpoint, or as a stand alone. I usually only use a folding BUIS if the rear sight is not being co-witnessed with an optic (i.e. a true back up iron sight that will only be deployed when a scope is removed).

    The goal is an Aimpoint T-1 Micro co-witnessed with the LaRue/CSAT aperture setup. Until then it will be my iron-sight .

    I have that same Midwest Rail on my LWRC, it's heavy. Nice set up, with the T1 it's going to be the bee's knees.

    Thanks for the info! I will check out the LaRue! I had been thinking about changing the rear sight of my M&P-15 from the Magpul to something like the Troy Battle sight.

    To those not familiar with the CSAT sight, here's an illustration. When shooting in the approximately 7-15, 20 yard range you look through the "notch" like you would lining up front and rear sights on a pistol. When distances increase move your eye's focus to the 'peep' to line up front sight post and target
