I like the Matech BUIS. Low profile, yardage adjustable out to 600 yards, and can be had relatively inexpensively.

I use it on all my optics equipped AR's.

Range report on the LWRC Skirmish sights:

 

I really wanted to like these sights. The design is excellent. I really like the rotating aperture which lets the sights be folded down with either the small or big holes. The sight picture is also very good.

 

However, they did not fare well in the execution department. While there is a a positive clicking sound when the sights are folded up, there is definite wiggle which is concerning. I went to go sight them in, starting at 25 yards, and it was shooting eight inches or so inches low, and 2 inches or so right. Albeit very consistently. No amount of adjusting the  sights seemed to help.

 

Now I'm no gunsmith or shooting expert, but I can be pretty darn sure I know how to slide some sights on my rails and screw them on. I can also be pretty darn sure I can put a hole where I want it at 25 yards with an AR. These are not problems I've had on the same rifle with a pair of MBUS sights which cost a third as much. I'll be contacting LWRC customer service after I take another range visit to confirm that the issue is the sights. I'll be bringing both the MBUS and Skirmish sights.

 

All in all, very disappointed. Maybe I got a bad run, but for a product that carries the LWRC name I expect a whole hell of a lot better. If all else fails, I'll probably throw on some Troy HK style sights and call it a day.
