My policy on BUIS had always been to go for high quality airsoft replicas. I’d always seen RS ones as a bit of an extravagance because I don’t use BUIS at all. I rely on my Aimpoints.

They were extremely well made, of course, but the best bit was they clamped down perfectly on the Evolution rail. Still a great fit on the OEM Systema receiver I was running back then – though I don’t think the top rail is exactly mil spec (not judging by how my Eo sits, anyway).
