Paul, Yes and Yes. It is most effective to use a scope that has accurate and repeatable elevation and windage adjustments (just like good iron sights). As I understand it, the rifle may have BUIS's but I assume that they can't be used during competition since my understanding of the rules is that if iron sights are used in lieu of an optical sight, they must be the carry handle variety. The actual wording is "Alternatively, the rifle may be equipped with issue-type metallic front and rear sights with a maximum sight radius of 20.5inches. Metallic sights, if used, must have an M16 type sight design with the rear sight in the carry handle and the front sight in the standard M16 location." Rick

I don't think you can alternate between optics and irons in the same match, like shooting irons at 200 and optics at 600.
Bamban, I agree with you. Specifically the rules state "If an optical sight is used, the same optical sight configuration must be used in all stages of a course of fire (changing sights or sight mount configurations is not permitted)." Of course, a shooter may change magnification during the course of the match. Rick
