I have been searching for some BUIS for a short AR. I currently have the Magpul BUIS on but I don't care for the "peep" style. Are there any flip style BUIS that are NOT peep style? I prefer the 3 dot pistol style for the more open sight picture. I'm almost tempted to Dremel the peep sight into a half circle.... Help! Haha

Thanks,
Chris

This kind of confirmed my suspicion that there are no other back-up sights except the peep style. I'm surprised it's the year 2014 and we only have 1 choice of BUIS in this time of booming firearm business.... Disappointing. Well time to spool up the dremel...

Perhaps its because the peep style is vastly superior to an open notch style.
From both an accuracy & speed standpoint.

The other thing is, an AR15 notch type sight that close to your eye will be too close to use it.

However, if you insist, there is this.

RC, you are awesome!! I can't believe you found these!! Thanks a ton!

I agree with the accuracy statement on the peep sight, however I have a hard time quickly acquiring targets during fast transitions... I guess practice could make perfect, I still think there should be more options out there. Like the triangle pistol sights but for rifles, those are cool!

Thanks again!
