I have been working with my AR. I have an A2 upper. I've recently attached a scope to it and zeroed it @ 100yards useing the lower profile scope rings.
I've read in forums that a scoped A2 is silly, and unrefined. Plus others have mentioned about offset being to much, and just not practical.
I don't get it.
One...the rifle is great with the mounted scope...easy to zero, and darn accurate.
Two...I have iron sights right there below the scope.
I don't have to remove scope, adjust anything on the rifle when going from scope to iron sights.
All I do is adjust my cheek weld....using the scope lower cheek, useing iron sights upper cheek . What so non-ideal about that.
No removing scope, no flipping ups the sights etc.etc.
I do like A3 uppers... not trying to better one over the other, but I just want to know what's so "not ideal" about a scoped A2."
I almost went out and got an A3 upper..but after working with the A2 I don't see the justification.
