    So the obvious question; what do you want to do with it?

    edit: ah... just saw the 'open' portion of your post... darn it I was all set to recommend something really expensive that required a lot of batteries.


    A.R.M.S. #40 is, IMHO the Porsche of flip-ups. I've used the GG&G 'MAD' and the KAC product and keep coming back to the A.R.M.S.

    edit redux: I suppose I should detail WHY I like the #40. Well it's a robust little sucker, spring loaded so that if it gets folded down while doing your combat-crawl to the mail box, it'll just flip back up again. Nice positive lock when in the down position, so if you're using optics, it won't get in the way unexpectedly. I have more reasons but I have to shut the network down for backups...ya'll be cool.

    If by open sight you mean iron sight I agree with QuarterBore the A.R.M.S. #40 is the best out there. Rugged little bugger it is. I have an A.R.M.S. #38EX Swan Sleeve mounted on the top of my Bushy A3. The sleeve has the #40 built into the back of it. I have an Aimpoint ML2 red dot mounted in an A.R.M.S. #22M68 and attached to the sleeve. Schweet set up, a bit pricey, but very schweet!! It allows for perfet co-witnessing of the irons thru the Aimpoint. The fact that the rear peep (#40) can be stowed when not needed is very cool. If $$ is no object give this setup a try you'll like it I think.

    Is it just me, or does that new RRA rail look like the one that came on my SL8? Too funny, since I chopped my SL8 rail to reduce it's length.

    I use the BMAS flips. That stands for, Bushmaster Modular Accessories System. It uses a right-handed adjustment knob, just like the A2 carry handle. It's got push-button release to flip it up, then a push-button release to fold it back down. In other words, it positively locks in BOTH the up and down positions. I like that. And it's slightly cheaper than the ARMS #40.

    For the front sight, I use the BMAS front flip sight and 3-rail gas block. If purchased together, it 's $119.99 from Bushmaster.

    I haven't played with them, but the flip sights from Wilson and Les Baer look really cool, too.

    Another vote for the ARMS #40. Large and small aperture and co-witnesses perfectly with my Holosight.

    I use the latest GG&G BUIS and really like it.
    Been playing with one of the new Zeiss Z-Point red dot sights the last week or so. It shows a lot of promise.

    If that is the case, you can leave the folder up, as with fixed sights. Look over the sight (or through it) to see the red dot, or just use the peeps.
