    BUIS options

    Well, I bit the bullet and order the Dlask rails for my Ruger SR-22. I'm looking to add some BUIS, but I'm really lost when it comes to this sort of thing. Looking on eBay, I can get Magpul PTS BUIS reasonably cheap - but I'm not sure about the quality compared to regular Magpul sights. Or would I be better off to upgrade to a metal sight (ie Troy)? Are there any major issues with cowitnessing a red dot to irons?

    What are my options? What do you run? What should I avoid?

    Do not go with the PTS magpul ones, Magpul themselves say dont use them on real guns.
    If you go with magpul go real its worth it i have my BUIS as the real magpuls

    Well, time to bring this one back from the dead.

    I just spent $11.30 on a set of "MagPul" BUIS from Deal Extreme. A little sketchy, but I will post details when they arrive.

    100% honest with you their fake.

    The real ones come in a plastic see through bag with the magpul cardboard paper sealing the top. and they run 10x that.



    To add to it if you check their contact information its China, they mass produce knock offs of magpul in china daily.

    Will it work? maybe, will it work as-well as real magpul, No.

    From what I can tell, they are the PTS line, which sells for about $30 on eBay. Not really 'fake' (maybe?) but definitely not the same quality as the genuine Magpul sights. For less than a value meal at the local burger mart, I'll give these an honest go. Worst case, they suck and I throw them away, or sell/give them to some airsoft kid. Best case, they hold a zero and kill gophers. Either way, I'm not expecting a lot.

    fair enough just letting you know. The PTS was designed for airsoft, so alot of the conditions a real firearm puts on the stocks trigger guards etc will not hold up under stress and magpul considers them dangerous to us. For MBUS they may have a spring break or they might just fall off but as far as dangerous, no so try em out and let us know if they still will work

    [sarcasm] Airsoft is hardcore tactical operations training. [/sarcasm]

    But seriously, these are for a .22 rimfire. I'm skeptical about the quality, but I haven't found a hands-on review that says they suck too much for casual use. And I'm sure I can find a mall-ninja to offload them on if they are crap.

    I wouldn't go to war with these.
