Midwest Industries MI-CBUIS Fixed Combat BUIS Review

Midwest Industries MI-CBUIS BUIS works great on firearms with otherwise fragile irons, like this IWI X95 Tavor equipped with Saker 762 sound suppressor provided by SilencerShop.
U.S.A. -(AmmoLand.com)- When I first got into modern sporting rifles like the AR-15 in 2004, the backup iron sight (or BUIS) market was very limited. LMT had a set, so did Knights Armorment, and plenty of people simply cut down detachable carry handles. And while all of these worked, more and more companies entered the fray with their own variations.
As development continued these became increasingly complex, and as a result, more expensive. And while I exclusively choose folding BUIS setups for use with magnified optics, for reflex sights, I actually prefer fixed options. But only if they still offer the vast majority of the original optic’s sight picture. In the course of my search for one such BUIS, I came across the Midwest Industries Combat Rifle Rear Fixed Sight (Model #MI-CBUIS).
The Midwest Industries CBUIS is milled from billet aluminum but features a skeletonized body to reduce weight.
The Midwest Industries CBUIS is a rock-solid sight milled from T6 6061 billet aluminum. Despite this, the BUIS only weighs 1.98oz according to my digital food scale – so I’ll assume it’s 2oz. While this is almost twice as heavy as Magpul’s polymer BUIS, it’s still impressive for a billet aluminum component. Normally, a sight built from billet would be much heavier, but the engineers at Midwest did a great job with their lightening cuts and partial skeletonization of the base.
The Combat BUIS is adjustable for windage alone. The sight utilizes an M16A1-style adjustment dial that moves the point of impact 0.5 minutes of angle per click. Unlike the A2, this A1-pattern dial requires either a special tool or a single 5.56mm cartridge to adjust. According to MI, they chose this style over an A2 knob because it’s slimmer, and less likely to snag or hang on clothing or equipment while being carried.
Midwest Industries features an A1-style windage adjustment knob.
Inside the housing, the MI fixed BUIS features a pair of mil-spec aperture “peep” sights. Just like on an M16, there is a larger diameter sight for close range and low light conditions, and a smaller peep or ghost ring for longer range targets. Both work great, but when zeroing your sights, be sure to use the smaller one for added precision.
To acquire a proper sight picture with aperture style irons simply place the front sight post in the center of the circle. Notice the light distortion from the pinhole camera effect of the rear sight.
One neat effect of peep sights is that they artificially increase a human eye’s depth of field. Permitting us to see not just our front sight post, but also our target with relative clarity. It’s an ingenious design, and one that is still very effective – even if a shooter requires a mild prescription of corrective lenses.
The peep sight forces a shooter’s eye to focus on the front sight, while also increasing the clarity of the sight picture.
When I first opened the box containing the BUIS, I was actually surprised to see that it lacked an Allen key. But once I turned it over, the lack of a key made total sense. The Midwest Industries fixed BUIS uses a flat head machine screw to secure itself to a Picatinny rail slot. In testing, this holds up fine provided the shooter uses the recommend torq specs of around 30 foot-lbs. If you lack a torque wrench, I’ve found that a rough equivalent to this is to crank down the screw an eighth of a rotation past tight or snug.
A shooter only needs a flat head screwdriver to install the Midwest Industries BUIS.
While I primarily recommend shooters use these sights as a standalone aiming device, they do work great with reflex sights. While not a true co-witness, they do provide lower third co-witness, which in my opinion is ideal if the iron sights cannot fold away.
In testing, the MI fixed BUIS works great with Aimpoint optics and perfectly co-witnesses in the lower third of the optic.
Overall, the Midwest Industries fixed combat BUIS makes for a solid, reliable aiming device. They lack some of the creature comforts of more pricy options, but if a shooter needs super-durable irons not made in China for a reasonable price, look no further.
The Midwest Industries MI-CBUIS makes a great addition to an entry-level AR like this PSA PA-15 carbine.

Five Absolute Musts for Brand New AR-15 Owners – Part 2

Category : Gear , Jim Grant , New Gun Owners

Now that we know how to use our brand new AR-15, it’s time to take a look at what essentials we need for it.
U.S.A. -(AmmoLand.com)- In part one, we discussed the basic safe handling of firearms (and by extension our AR-15). If you are a brand new gun owner, do not skip part one! Go back and read it.
Now, for the rest of you, we’re going to continue where we left off. Keep in mind, that the following items are somewhat specific to the AR-15, but much of the information (especially on sights) is universally applicable.
Get Some Sights
If you purchased a basic AR-15 from somewhere like Palmetto State Armory or Aero Precision, odds are it’s missing one or both iron sights. This isn’t just a cost-cutting measure, it’s because shooters tend to have very specific tastes and preferences when it comes to AR-15 sights. The problem is that it’s impossible to precisely aim a firearm without any sights installed. So while your brand new PSA gun can load and fire ammo just fine, placing those rounds where you want is a different story. When it comes to aiming your firearm, you have three basic options.

Magnified Optics: Magnified optics are among the easiest to use for medium and long-range shooting. They use a series of lenses to magnify what a shooter is looking at. Etched into the glass is a reticle or aiming crosshair. On all modern magnified optics, they are adjustable for windage and elevation. Meaning, users can change where the scope is pointed to align with where the gun is shooting. I would not recommend these for new shooters, because while they are easy to use, they don’t teach good fundamentals, and if a shooter intends to use their rifle for home defense, it can be difficult to correctly use inside the confines of a home. Prices range from $150 to $2,000 and up.
Reflex Sights / Red Dots: Reflex sights were designed for one thing: speed. They are the fastest aiming device around. Available in a number of configurations, sizes, and colors (both the reticle and body) on a basic level these optic work by projecting an illuminated, “dot” on a piece of glass only visible to the shooter. They are considered parallax free, meaning if the shooter can see the dot, the sight is aligned properly. For home defense, reflex sights are king. Simply aim the dot at your target, and if need be, pull the trigger to send rounds to the dot’s projection. While these aren’t the best sights to teach new shooters fundamentals like sight picture and breathing control, they are very fast and very versatile. So if you’re in need of a home defense weapon ASAP, and your gun lacks sights of any sort, pick up a reflex sight or red dot. Expect to spend a minimum of $90 for an entry-level reflex sight, with higher-end military-grade options hovering around $500.
Iron Sights: Despite their name, iron sights are built from polymer, steel, or aluminum. These are the most durable sights available, and in many ways, the most rudimentary. Unlike magnified optics or reflex sights, iron sights require training to use properly. Most are fully adjustable for windage and elevation, and they range in price from $50 to $200. These are my personal choice for new shooters looking to become proficient shooters, but they’re also the most difficult to use.

No, this isn’t a production still from The Walking Dead, it’s how most guns ship from the factory. You’ll need a sight to complete your gun.
In terms of installing these sights on your gun, all of them use what is known as a Picatinny Rail interface or mount. Some of them will feature a quick detach mount, while other will simply use a hex screw. But all of them will include detailed instructions for installation. It’s all very basic easy stuff, but if you’re concerned that you’re not installing them correctly, look at the manual or search for more information online.
After you have your choice of sight installed, be sure to zero it. Explaining the finer details of which are somewhat time-consuming, and while the process is straightforward, it can be a little complex. Luckily for you, we have an excellent article that gives step-by-step directions on how to do so.
Lancer Industries’ L5 AWM magazine is among the finest AR15 magazines in existence.
Three High-Quality Magazines
Ammunition magazines were designed to be disposable to a soldier in the field. As civilian gun-owners, we like to reuse our mags. With most gun designs, magazines are somewhat expensive, and if you’re lucky, the factory ones are the best available. With the AR-15, there are dozens of manufacturers and hundreds of options. But that brings up another issue – how does a brand new shooter separate the gold from the garbage?
In my experience, here are some basic guidelines to determine if a product is worthwhile or not. One easy way to tell if a product is high quality enough is if it’s in use by special forces and/or competitors. Notice I said, special forces, not the military. The military doesn’t buy the best products available, they buy the most affordable ones that meet their minimum requirements. For the M16/M4 and AR-15 this means aluminum 30-round magazines.
These work well, but there are better options available on the market for similar, or lower prices. My personal recommendations are Magpul PMAGS and Lancer L5 AWM magazines. I recommend Magpul because there are ubiquitous, lightweight, and function great in any STANAG-compatible firearm. Basically, if the gun says it uses AR-15 magazines, it will almost certainly run on PMAGS. But what about Lancer mags?
For me, I hate compromise. I want exactly what I want, and I don’t want to have to give up anything to get it. While this is rarely possible in life, it is certainly the case with Lancer’s Advanced Warfighter Magazines or AWMs.  These magazines combine the lightweight construction and corrosion resistance of polymer, with the added strength and longevity of steel. They do this by incorporating a steel collar into a high-impact polymer body. The only downside of them is cost. They’re a little pricier than PMAGS.
While not the most inexpensive ammo in the world, Hornady’s match-grade rounds are amazingly accurate.
180 Rounds of Quality Ammunition
Why 180? Because the combined capacity of your three magazines is 90 rounds, and shooters should be able to fill these mags up for a range trip without depleting their supply. Ideally, you should have half a case of ammo to make sure you can practice at the range a few times, and still have enough ammo to use the gun for home defense. (In a perfect world I’d have 10,000 rounds loaded into magazines so I could head to the range at a moment’s notice, and never worry about having to load magazines. Sadly, I’m not a millionaire, and my wife would kill me if I made that dream a reality.)
Ammunition is expensive, and doubly so if you purchase the high-quality stuff. But don’t give in to temptation, and buy the cheapest crap you can find. The difference in cost between steel-cased and brass-cased ammunition is worth it for the sake of increased reliability and more consistent performance. Yes, many guns run fine with steel ammo, but some still don’t. To make sure anyone reading this doesn’t end up having to clear a malfunction at a time when they really need their gun, I’m going to stick to the recommendation of brass-cased, quality ammo. If you’re not in the know, some very reputable brands are Winchester Ammunition, Federal Performance Ammunition, Black Hills Ammunition, and my favorite, Hornady.
Whichever round you choose, be sure to buy the same loading for all your rounds to make sure that your rifle will shoot consistently. Especially if you’ve zeroed it for a certain loading, you’ll have the best results sticking to that specific cartridge.
The First Step Towards Independence
Congratulations, you’ve taken an incredible first step on your road to being what our forefathers thought of as a true American. By deciding to take your, and your family’s fate into your own hands, you’ve tasted one of the fundamental liberties our forefathers fought and died to ensure. Make no mistake, your rifle isn’t just for fun plinking at the range or defending your home from intruders. It’s a message to politicians, a warning to tyrants, and a promise to the core principals of this great nation. When a citizen decides to become a gun owner, they are letting the government know that while they expect the Government to assist them in times of turmoil, they will step up if the Government won’t. And that’s exactly the kind of individual liberty that makes this nation so great.

Five Absolute Musts for Brand New AR-15 Owners Part -1

Category : Gear , Jim Grant , New Gun Owners

The AR-15 is an accurate, lightweight reliable firearm. Like all firearms, it must be handled with respect and strict adherence to the four rules of gun safety.
U.S.A. -(AmmoLand.com)- Most readers on this site own a firearm (or 20) and are very familiar with the safe operation of their weapons. But with the vast increase of new gun-owners panic-buying as a result of COVID-19, some basic-level information is necessary to help these new folks. And since by and large, the most common self-loading firearm in America is the AR-15, it only makes sense that a new gun owners article center around this modern sporting rifle (MSR).
And to ensure as many of these people as possible actually read this piece, it’s broken up into bite-sized pieces as a list. That way overwhelmed reader’s eyes won’t glaze over. So, with that in mind here are 5 must-haves for brand-new gun owners and their AR-15 carbines.
Follow the Rules
This one is paramount. If you take away nothing else from this article, new owners will be measurably better off with this one in mind. Also, this one applies to any, and all firearms.
This might shock some of you, but firearms are dangerous tools. Much like a miter-saw, or a lawn-mower, if you screw around with a powerful tool you can really hurt, or even kill yourself. Thankfully, someone already figured out four easy rules to follow for otherwise clueless shooters. I’m going to list them below, and give you a breakdown of what they mean. They are mostly self-explanatory, but I’ve made the mistake of assuming competence in the past, and it’s taught me that nothing is fool-proof.

All Guns Are Always Loaded
No, this doesn’t mean you should keep your firearms loaded at all times. It means you should treat them like they’re loaded at all times. Countless people have been shot with “unloaded guns”. This is an entirely avoidable situation. A gun only fires in one direction – from the end of the barrel. This is known as the muzzle – AKA the dangerous end. Which brings us to rule number 2.

Never Point a Gun at Anything You Aren’t Prepared to Destroy
This one is pretty simple, but people breaking this rule are responsible for most of all accidental shootings. It’s impossible to shoot someone or something if your gun isn’t aimed at them. Easy solution – don’t aim at them. More than that, shooters should be aware of their muzzle at all times. Many shooters find it easier to do this if they imagine a deadly laser beam emitting from the barrel at all times. Whatever works for you, it doesn’t matter. Just don’t aim your firearm any anything you aren’t trying to shoot.
Keep Your Finger Off The Trigger Until You’re Ready to Shoot
Again, this is a very easy rule to follow, and one that is very logical. Despite what Hollywood and the media would tell you, guns do not simply, “Go off.” They are precision machines that require a user to perform a specific action to discharge the weapon. Yes, I know it’s comfortable for new shooters to rest their fingers on the trigger, but it’s needlessly dangerous even with the safety on. Remember, no mechanical safety is 100% reliable, nor should we expect one to be.
Be Sure of Your Target and What is Behind it
While popular media might have us believe that bullets magically ricochet off of sheet metal or the sides of cars, the reality is quite different. Bullets are traveling very fast. So fast, that they can penetrate wood and thin metal easily. This rule is designed to make sure shooters won’t put up a thin wooden target out in the woods, and shoot through it towards a distant neighbor’s house. While there is no definitive guide to what stops bullets, a thick pile of dirt or a very steep side of a hill or mountain is 100% effective.

Read the F&^*ng Manual!
Now that you’re familiar with what safe handling of firearms entails, it’s time to familiarize yourself with your firearm in particular. This one is boring and unexciting, but absolutely critical. Read the manual! Yes, I’m one of those guys too, who doesn’t read the manual when he gets a new piece of technology. But fumbling with programming your DVR is annoying, accidentally discharging your rifle through the wall into your neighbor’s cat – or worse – is a big deal.
Don’t worry, the manual has pictures, and is designed for the lowest common denominator. Because there’s no such thing as a minimum IQ requirement for firearms ownership (thank God!) every manual has to be made so that dumbest guy reading it can understand it. If you’re reading this blog, congratulations! You’re not the dumbest guy, and so you’ll have no issues following along with the kindergarten-level vocabulary and big pictures of the manual. Yes, I know it sucks, but just do it the first few times you take the gun out or decide to clean it. At the very worst, you’ve wasted 10 minutes of your time. It’s worth it, and your neighbor’s cat will thank you.
At this point, new owners should at least be able to use their firearm safety and employ it properly when needed. It will take hours of practice to become proficient, but take comfort in knowing that you’re on the right path. And since we’ve already gone over a ton of information, we’ll wait until part two, to get into the specifics of what you’ll need to get the most out of your new firearm.

Iron Sights Gun Company Range Bag – Review

Iron Sights Gun Company Range Bag – Review
U.S.A. –-(Ammoland.com)-  One of the big perks in writing for AmmoLand is that we have access to the products of nearly every major manufacturer out there.  The counterpoint to that is that there’s usually a lot less time available to check out the gear made by smaller businesses.  Thankfully, that isn’t always the case.  Such as when Iron Sights Gun Company (ISGC) owner Mike Conroy reached out to me.  ISGC is a Veteran owned and operated gun store/range in Southern Louisiana.  They’ve started moving into manufacturing soft goods, such as a range bag, duffel bag and morale patches.  The morale patches have done well enough that they’ve started a monthly subscription service (ISGC Patch Club), but we’re mainly here to take a look at their range bag.
ISCGs patches
Tech Specs:

Dimensions: 17.72 x 9.84 x 10.63 in
Made of 600D Oxford Polyester
Available in both Black and Tan colors
Magazine pouches in both of the large front and back pockets
2 large side pockets
2 smaller pockets on the outside of the side pockets
A very spacious main compartment which also includes 2 adjustable/removable dividers
90% LOOP VELCRO on the exterior (except the bottom)
Available in black and tan

Ok, so we’ve got a hefty range bag that doubles as a morale patch display platform.  Is this a gimmick product or does it have legitimate chops?  I’m happy to say that it’s an extremely capable range bag, but it does have a couple points it could improve on.  Let’s see what worked and what didn’t!
What works:
-The main compartment is huge.  I packed for a big range day, then turned it into a range/picnic with my wife and kids, so I tossed in 4 extra sets of electronic ear protection and still had plenty of space.  I had used the dividers to cut the main compartment in half, keeping my equipment separate from my ammo.
Iron Sights Gun Company Range Bag
-The bag is certainly strong enough.  When it’s plumb full there’s no signs it’s going to have structural issues.  So I added a 35 lb dumbbell on top.  Still no stitches popping or fabric tearing.  That’ll do!
Iron Sights Gun Company Range Bag
-The organizational options are Goldilocks.  There’s neither too many pockets, nor too few.  Main compartment is huge, the end pockets are big enough for small tools, cleaning kits and other sundry items you might need to keep your range day going, and the side pockets are both big enough for 4x 30-round AR15 mags with ease.
Essential range supplies: staples!
-The Velcro hook/loop exterior.  If you like slapping patches on, this bag’s got all the acreage you need.  Not just for irreverant morale patches, this space is good for name tags, unit patches, or other identifying information.  Hell, this would make a good “Go Bag” to store a large number of loaded mags in, and if you wanted to have more than one bag on hand, you can caliber label the exterior.  Or just stick with “Baby Yoda” and the “Pandemic Slut” from the ISGC Patch Club.  Never thought I’d write that sentence….
What needs work:
-That second to last point up there mentioned the side pockets fitting 4x 30-round AR mags easily.  The trouble is, there’s pouches sewn in for six.  The pouches are sewn in too high (so that the zipper hits the mags unless you want to do some origami), and too close together (so that 6 won’t fit in correctly).  I just opted not to use the built-in pouches and dropped 4x mags in, which worked just fine.  There’s room for a 5th, though a little tight.  A couple small adjustments and this issue (from an early-release review sample) is gone.
Iron Sights Gun Company Range Bag
-Hair.  This is no fault of the manufacturer, it’s just unavoidable if you have pets and hook/loop (velcro).  I don’t care if it’s your tactical Belgian Malinois of if you have a “crazy cat lady” horde of felines.  If they’re near this bag, prepare for the hair.
Bottom line:
The Iron Sights Gun Company Range Bag might not be from a major manufacturer, nor a famous brand name.  It is a solid piece of equipment though, and one I’m happy to be using.  One thing that will definitely keep ISGC competitive is their price.  I’m used to dropping ~$80 on a tough range bag, but this one is coming in at $49.99.  If you’re on the hunt for a good way to carry and organize your ammo and range equipment, check out Iron Sights Gun Co and their range bag.

Blackhawk Adds New Basketweave Holsters to T-Series Duty Line

Category : BLACKHAWK , Gear

New Level 3 Duty Holsters Available for Glock 17 with Option for Light Bearing Model
U.S.A. –-(Ammoland.com)- Blackhawk, a leader in the law enforcement and military equipment realm for over 20 years, announced today that it has added two new Level 3 Duty (L3D) holsters to its popular T-Series line. Available in a light bearing and non-light bearing model, the T-Series L3D holsters have been designed with a new basketweave finish to better serve the needs of on-duty law enforcement officers and is compatible with the Glock 17 pistol.
The basketweave design is a staple finish in the law enforcement community as the pattern is quite common on active duty holsters and belts. The black leather design offers an enhanced look and feel, increasing the command presence of on-duty officers. The L3D holster was designed to match frequently used belts, pouches and other accessories and continues Blackhawk’s long-standing legacy of duty-rated holsters.
The Blackhawk T-Series line is the world’s first thumb driven, dual-injected molded holster. The holster combines the company’s proven outer body strength made possible with a glass reinforced nylon along with a soft touch inner layer that is both super slick and sound-dampening. This durable and efficient, low-friction design translates into a smooth, quiet draw or when re-holstering the sidearm. Designed to follow Blackhawk’s Master Grip Principle, all T-Series holsters have been specifically developed to allow the user’s hand to land naturally where it should in order to deploy the sidearm.
The T-Series line is available in Level 2 and Level 3 configurations, including options for both compact and light bearing holsters. All models are duty-rated and with their shared functionality, Blackhawk has helped solve the commonality of training with the same draw for every model holster. Whether going from concealment, Level 2 or Level 3, the draw stroke remains the same even with the holster changes making the T-Series the ideal holster to meet the needs of law enforcement and military professionals.

Leupold Announces New Black Ring Version of Freedom Red Dot Sight

Category : Gear , Leupold

The new Freedom red dot sight from Leupold is full of great features.
Beaverton, OR -(AmmoLand.com)- Leupold & Stevens, Inc., provider of the world’s most rugged, lightweight, and clear riflescopes and reflex sights, is pleased to announce that its award-winning Freedom RDS (Red Dot Sight) is now available in a Black Ring model. Originally featuring the company’s trademark Gold Ring around its objective bell, the RDS will now have an all-black finish similar to the company’s Mark 5HD, Mark 6, and Mark 8 riflescopes.
A tubular red dot sight built for performance and versatility, the new RDS is available in two models: One features capped precision ¼-MOA click adjustments, the other a precision exposed BDC elevation turret that ships with measurements out to 500 yards for standard 55-grain .223 Rem. ammunition. The RDS is designed to install easily with an included mount that sits at the optimal height for use on AR-style rifles. A third version, featuring the capped precision ¼-MOA click adjustments, will be available without the included mount. A 34mm main tube allows the RDS to be mounted using any appropriately-sized rings.
“The RDS is a premium red dot and is perfect for anyone who values performance.” said Tim Lesser, Vice President of Product Development at Leupold & Stevens, Inc. “It is designed, machined, and assembled in our factory in Beaverton, Oregon. So, when our core consumers asked for a ‘Black Ring’ version, we responded quickly, and in a way that only a true American manufacturer can.”
The Freedom RDS features a 1-MOA dot reticle that’s supported by Leupold’s battery-saving Motion Sensor Technology (MST), which puts the sight into a battery-saving standby mode after five minutes of inactivity. When the MST detects motion, it instantly activates the sight so it’s ready when you are. A manual mode allows the sight to shut off when not in use. Eight illumination settings are available, making the dot easily visible in low-light conditions or the mid-day sun. On the RDS’s medium setting, you get up to 1,000 hours of battery life – which, thanks to its MST, truly equals 1,000 usable hours.
The new Freedom RDS from Leupold is designed for close-range, rapid target engagement.
The scratch-resistant lenses feature Leupold’s Twilight Red Dot System, which delivers standard color consistency and premium lens clarity. The RDS features 80-MOA of adjustment in both elevation and windage. It measures at under 5.5 inches and weighs less than 7 ounces. The ultra-lightweight construction disperses recoil energy, making the RDS the toughest red dot in its class.
“The RDS features lightweight construction that disperses recoil energy and creates unrivaled durability,” said Tom Moyle, Product Line Manager for Leupold & Stevens, Inc. “It’s been tested and verified on our Punisher, and it lives up to Leupold’s legendary standards for ruggedness. Whether you’re at the range or in the field, it will deliver steadfast performance.” Waterproof, fogproof, and guaranteed to perform for life, the Freedom RDS is backed by Leupold’s Lifetime Guarantee.

Founded in Oregon more than a century ago, Leupold & Stevens, Inc. is a fifth-generation, family-owned company that designs, machines and assembles its riflescopes, mounting systems, tactical/Gold Ring spotting scopes, and Performance Eyewear in the USA.
