Diamondhead Micro-D BUIS / Troy Micro Sets

Anyone heard of or had experiece with these? I know they are reputable companies that do some nice manufacturing high quality equipment. Both personal experience and from what I've seen. Everyone here has issues with height over bore due to optics/iron sights for one reason or other.

Pros:
Alloy
Foldable/Low Profile
Meant For Raised Rails
Standard Front Post

Cons:
Cost$$$

I for one don't sell anything I build. So the investment to have a low profile BUIS that I don't have to work optics around and can put a tritium post in seems like an overall win. Plus I think they look pretty cool too.

Like Oskar Shindler said,  "Good things cost money."  Can never go wrong w/ Troy.  Just put one of their AK forward lower hand guards on a rifle - it is sweet.

I've had a set of troy micro HK style flip ups on my AUG for several years and I like them.  They have held zero the entire time and I think they look good on the rifle as well.  I think they might be slightly tall for use with a factory EVO stock, but may work with some of the aftermarket options.  Just my two cents.

John A:  Went to your link, red the article, and thought about it.  I am satisfied w/ Mr. Troy's statement.  I closely followed the events at Ruby Ridge, as they were in progress, and afterward.  The employee in question was not the discredited Lon Horiuchi.    I will continue to use Troy products but thanks for the information.  I often wonder where people end up years after major events like Ruby Ridge.

Thanks for input. they look like they are a little taller than the cz buis. if you have both, a picture of both mounted on pic rail would really help. even throw on a standard buis would be cool with all 3! I'm just curious. even if the micros sit as low as the cz when folded would be nice. then it gives options for 1/3 or co-witness without distracting from red dot.

The same TROY that had hired one of the Ruby Ridge snipers?

I've been on this earth long enough to know that any big business has skeletons in closet or shaded work practices... that's business! bleep one company because of who they hire??? Look at how many employees Walmart  screws... its business and economics.

Priorities. Hard to swallow, yes but if they have alot of benefits. Look at what people pay for "mil-spec" battle grade optics, SBRs, silencers, tax stamps, triggers, paint jobs...? I guess it's just where you choose to spend.

Flip up sights and silencers and sbr's are in entirely different categories altogether.

A backup sight is often little more than an after thought to most people.

Put two different ones on a gun ranging from $14 cheap ebay flip sights and the most expensive flip sight you can find, and if the person shooting the gun is proficient at all, they'll put holes on the target with both.

Granted that I will say that the quality of sights aren't going to be the same, and neither is the type of work you're going to perform but if both are in working order, will achieve the same thing.  They're called back up sights for a reason.  Redundancy.

I don't use cheap ebay sights. 

But I do like the CAA flip sight sets.  They're usually between $75-$100 a set and the way they are made are a little more wide than magpuls and the like which I think offers a better sight picture.  And they have an aluminum base and polymer top. 

If going into battle, I think I would prefer all metal.

Hopefully won't be getting into a firefight anytime soon.  And if I do, I guess I'll run what I brung and hope for the best.
