My current build is only gonna have iron sights. Go with a carry handle or Matech?

If iron sights was all I was going to use, I would go with some fixed sights from Troy. Another option if you want a carry handle-like set up, look into the DD 1.5 or LMT fixed rear sight( similar features with less bulk).

Hope this helps.

I'd say LMT or Matech due to a potentially longer sight radius.

if you dont mind spending a lil money on your sights i would go for the troy battlesights IMO

LMT or cut down carry handle. If you don't need it to fold no reason to pay extra. Troy sights don't have elevation.

You're right but don't the LMTs cost as much as the Troy?

Just realized that after I posted, thought they were cheaper for some reason.

Have you tried/used KAC 200-600m? I love mine.

If only iron sights, carry handle. Most durable of all of them. Proven system. Marines hit 500M all day long with them. Second choice LMT.

Knights Armament 200-600 meter micro is worth looking into.

Best option for precision work. Highly recommend pinning and adding SR Microsight.

Do a google search on revised improved battle sight zero if you are unfamiliar with it. Requires you to do an easy adjustment modification to the elevation wheel on your carry handle or LMT cut down carry handle rear sight. Only requires an allen wrench. My vote is carry handle or LMT rear if you don't need folders. If you need a folding rear, KAC 200-600 are my favs. The LMT cut down rear would allow you to easily mount a cowitnessed red dot in the future if you desire, but is identical to the carry handle in function and adjustability. Good on you for wanting to shoot iron sights.

For cost, simplicity and durability, I would go with a carry handle. BUIS really good when combined with a red dot but hardly worth it as a stand alone. LMT makes a nice fixed sight but I would just go with the cheaper carry handle and it has two very solid mounting points.
