    I don't currently have anything with BUIS' on it to measure myself :( Anyway, I am planning on putting a set on my Ruger SR-22 rifle. The red dot I have on there right now needs a riser so I'm wondering what my cheek weld and ergonomics will be like with the iron sights. If someone could give me a rough measurement on the distance from the top of your rail to the center of your peep hole or v-notch, I'd appreciate it.

    Thanks! Looks like the centerline of my red dot is only .9" above the rail so I should pick up about .5" in height, which should help.

    It'll also help your head position. Having the dot that low is going to be uncomfortable, and will hurt your field of vision.
