If you intend to swap out muzzle devices, I would really encourage you to pick up a vise block and a torque wrench. Total cost should be about $70, and it will allow you to do your own installs down the road. I was intimidated at first, but it really is quite easy.
I'm going to pick up this battlecomp from the local store(sponsors a local forum too) and then when I decide on a can Ill buy the vise and torque wrench. Since ill need to change at least 3 muzzle devices. I'm always nervous about working on my own shit too, since projects like that are not my forte haha.

Just got to decide on buis now. Main optics will be a comp m4 with a 3x magnifier. Deciding between Troy hk style or magpuls. Can't wait to shoot it.

I am pretty much going to be a permanent MBUS buyer for my BUIS now. I don't use my sights, so no use spending much money on them. Just my philosophy.

That's what I'm leaning towards. I never really plan on shooting the irons

I've got a couple sets of the Magpuls, and one Troy. I really don't see much of a difference.

The only situation when I would run the irons up are during a class if the instructor required it.

Why not shoot with irons? Never know when your sight takes a dump on ya. I also like the challenge and think it's a viable skill to be proficient at.

Been looking at an Aimpoint T-1. Planning on pairing it with a Larue mount, but I'm stuck between an absolute cowitness mount or a lower 1/3 mount. Which works better with a proper cheekweld? Part of me thinks the lower 1/3 mount will make it sit too high and since I have folding sights, I don't have to worry about the irons interfering with the sight picture...

Edit: just did some reading on this on a few other boards. Most seem to like the lower 1/3 mount. I guess what I'll do is go to my local shops and test both out to see which one I really like.

Definitely lower 1/3. There is NO reason for for an absolute co-witness. You have to crane your head down lower. With a proper cheek weld, a 1/3 will work just fine. I have a tall friend who had absolute co-witness, and he literally is so hunched over the rifle. It seems incredibly uncomfortable.

In my opinion, a lower 1/3 is really best if you are using front and rear fixed sights.

I don't run any fixed back ups, and I prefer an absolute co-witness because if I have to flip up the irons, I prefer to have a full view through the glass.

Ha! Well, two different answers for you. Go try them and see which works best for you.

ETA: I just realized that you were talking specifically about the T-1. I use Eotechs, so that certainly may change things.

I'm a fan of 1/3 Co-witness. The difference between the two is that the Lower-1/3 gives you more leeway for movement and positioning. The difference between 1/3 and absolute is between 1/4-1/2", but it makes a significant difference with a lot of people; myself included. It initially gives you a slightly more "heads up" position on the rifle, which is desirable. When you start shooting from unconventional positions where you can't get a proper optics alignment and cheek weld, more height can aid in target acquisition and efficient optics use. Less of a chance you need to contort yourself to get the right view.

Check out this thread by Mark Fingar of LaRue Tactical. Good info.

Wow, that is the best written explanation I've ever read.

Thanks guys (especially Reedo); that link was nice.

What was that website that had new or used optics at good prices again? There was a thread on Arfcom yesterday that I missed offering the T-1 2 moa + Larue 1/3 mount for $615 shipped. Thought it was a decent deal, but wasn't sure if I could beat it somewhere. I missed that one so I'm on the hunt a bit.
