    I'm ready to order a set of these sights but I need to make sure that the rear sight lays low enough to not interfer with the my scope.

    Can someone tell me the closed height of the rear Magpul BUIS sight?

    Thanks,
    Seamaster

    I don't know exactly what it is, but it looks to be ~3/4's of an inch if i had to guess.... I'm looking at it right now on my ruger 10/22 with archangel stock. I have the magpul front and rear sights.

    Thank you!!! I have exactly 3/4" clearance. Do you think you can put a measuring tape or ruler to it?

    I just checked mine and it is 7/10" above the rail.

    That would be 0.7" which is less than .75" so it should fit. Thanks a ton for measuring.

    While shopping around for the best price I stumbled onto the specs. For those interested here they are:

    Reinforced, injection-molded polymer, Black, Dark Earth, O.D. Green, or Foliage Green.

    Dimensions apply to front and rear sights. Heights measured from top of rail to top of sight,

    - 1.625” (4.1cm) long when deployed,
    - 2.625” (6.7cm) long when folded,
    - 1.25” (3.2cm) wide,
    - 0.630” (1.6cm) high when folded,
    - 1.5” (3.8cm) high extended,
    - Large aperture, .185” diameter,
    - Small aperture, .70” diameter,
