The AimPoint ML3 2MOA with LaRue cantilever mount is a great option:

You really can't beat that price and their mounts are the best in the biz.
As far as BUIS, cheapest option is YHM rear.
Hope this helps.

Save yourself a hundred bucks and ask G&R about their Aimpoint C3 w/ LaRue mount. The C3 is the same as the ML3 with the exception that the ML3 is rated submersible to 75 feet while the C3 is rated to 15 feet. Unless you scuba dive with your AR, get the C3 and the spend the savings on ammo.

F&R sights can be seen in the Big Bad BUIS FAQ (http://ar15.com/forums/topic.html?b=3&f=18&t=206233)

An aimpoint fits with a BUIS using any mount. You only need the cantilevered ones if you run a magnifier of NV

Try Google for pics :p
