  • Sounds like a good plan jjbledsoe. On most 16" uppers the the flash suppressor will not be permanently mounted. You could check with BCM to confirm.

    For a few bucks more, you could have a full floating rail and maybe gain some in accuracy.

    • Zep, I was under the impression the YHM Rails were free float? It says so in the title, "Tactical Free Float". Or does the "tactical" make it different?

      • I didn't see Free Floating or Floating in your description so I was under the impression that they were not.

        Tactical is also a catch word for folks after the TactiCOOL LOOK Factor.

              Does this mean the full entire BCG is chromed? Or just the innerds? Because I see different ones, like RRA's "chromed BCG" looks like it's chrome lined everywhere. BCG's on the other hand says chrome lined on the insides. Is there a big difference?

                Yeah, that's pretty much sweetness. Still, I prefer fixed front sight bases... That's all I'm saying.

                  Nearly all BCGs are chrome-lined on the inside (at least, the good ones I would recommend are). But the ones I am saying aren't really worth the extra money are the ones that are COMPLETELY chromed, meaning inside AND out. They are "chrome plated", not "chrome-lined."

                  Since you are going to actually be USING the sights for a little while without an optic, I would suggest not going with the Magpul BUIS. It is truly a backup, and your accuracy may suffer from using it instead of a better unit like the LaRue BUIS or Daniel Defense 1.5. The DD is a bit cheaper than the LaRue. The Magpul will work, and probably work fine, but don't get upset that your rifle isn't as accurate as you had hoped as long as you are using the plastic flip sight.

                    I also prefer FSB. We are going with Aimpoints so the sights will be backups. I am going to ditch the rear sights for something different. I am also looking into the Surefire Micro suppressor. I understand they are not super quite but only add something like two inches to the OAL. I attended a training class last year with a 11.5" Colt. Shooting from inside a car and inside houses was serious. Talk about concussion and muzzle flash!! Suggestions anyone? I have never messed with suppressors. I would like to keep them as short as possible.

                        As JWise said, the part that matters is on the inside. I wouldn't really pay extra for chroming on the entire thing but I think some companies just find it easier to chrome all of it. It does make the outside of the carrier easier to clean, but that isn't nearly so critical as on the inside.

                          Thanks for clearing that up dude (and HeadDoc). Are you suggesting something like this DD sight? Does it "co-exist" (is that what you fellas call it?) if I were to get a dot or a scope? It's only $10 more and if it will make the difference between 1-2" groups and 3-4" groups i'm all in, as long as I can mount sights on it without removing it.

                          • The sight sits on the same plane as an A2 front sight post, as well as the DD front sight mount and most other BUIS front sights. The sights will co-witness with red dots if you have the proper mounts for the optic. Aimpoints and EOTechs (and some others) all have available mounts for either absolute co-witness or lower-1/3 co-witness, depending on your preference.

                            • Cool, thanks! And also, BCM has the F-marked FSB. I didn't really understand the explanation in the first post. I know one is .04" higher than the other one. Would that be a huge deal when sighting in for the first time? Would the rear sights be shipped to go with f-marked FSB's or the non-F's? Probably a dumb question but I really am clueless.

                                Yep, that's the one. It is a 25mm offset, so it is the same plane as the standard sight (it will work with the F-Marked front sight base.) The optic (1X, meaning zero magnification optic, like an Aimpoint or EOTech) will sit directly in front of the sight, and it will work perfectly together.
