I am in the process of building a High Power Competition Rifle. It has a AR15 lower Reciever, White Oak Armament Upper Reciever and a WOA fully adjusable Buttstock. The sights recomended by some of the better shooters in my club are the Stalling's Machine  30mm "RightSight" for the front sight and Warner Tool's close tolerance, precision rear sight using an Aperture such as an Anschutz 9775-S. My question is how does this sight system compare to an a high quantity scope in overall performance firing 200-600yds. The sighting system I described cost nearly $1000.00

Doesn't even come close compared to some of the scopes in this price range. Iron sights and guns built for specific shooting matches, have severe limitations in other use areas. Usually they are specified for this to prevent equipment "races", but they end up causing one.

Thanks for the reply but you made a general overall comment without specifics. Why would a scope be better? Remember this is a competition rifle and not for hunting.

Have a bushmaster with a mk4 6.5x20, and custom built LAR upper with Kreiger barrel and a 8x32 NF (currently) that will outshoot most 223 bolts, certainly anything with iron sites. I'm guessing that the rules you will be following won't allow scopes.

With a scope you can zoom in so you can see the target better.  You only have one sight to line up instead of two, you have a smaller aiming point with the crosshair.  With the scope your reticle can appear to be in the same plane as the target, where with the iron sight you have to focus on the target and sight individually.  You can make more precise adjustments with the scope.  I am sure the list can go on and on.
