Sneak Peek – Strike Industries

Interesting application of an offset BUIS.

    Doesn’t KAC hold a patent for the offset BUIS or did I make that up?

    Looks like its a 3 position set up. Down and stowed, co-witnessed, off-set. I kind of like it.

  3. will says:

    Kinda pointless if you ask me. Weren’t offset buis designed to be used in conjunction with magnified optics.

  4. will says:

    Or maybe its supposed to be used universally for any setup and just in case the optic goes down so you don’t have to can’t the rifle.

    Okay guys I’m not an engineer, and I’m honestly not even that smart – but one has to wonder if the zero for irons would still work in both an offset and cowitness set up.

    If so, awesome.

      As long as it has the same height over bore in both positions, or should work.

        *it should

          I guess, as long as the bore of the barrel is perfectly perpendicular to the rail that the sights are mounted on. I strongly suspect though that they won’t be perfectly zeroed in both positions at the same time. However, as a set of BUIS, they are probably not intended for precision long distance shooting.

          • Christopher California says:

            More likely than not, they’re not for long range precision, and will probably only be able to be truly zeroed in one of the two usable positions. The other position of choice would probably be the one you intend to use less or are less likely to have to use. Either way, I’d be down for a set if both positions are good inside 100m. Looks to be quite the engineering conundrum to try and make it perfectly precise and symmetrical in both orientations.

    That thing makes sense like tits on a bull

    SI might have some misses along with the hits, but you gotta admit they come up with some interesting ideas and aren’t afraid to try them out.

  8. RoughEdge says:

    if they are zeroed at both locations, the offset is a quick way around fogged over optics when moving from indoors to out or vis versa
