    Exactly !! If your using the LaRue ECOS-C 110 just make sure you get the "LOW" LT 649. Mounts directly to the LT 110 mount and is perfectly co witnessed. You can also run the "HIGH" magnifier mount if you want to still cowitness but not mount on the LT 110. I have both.

    I would strongly suggest the LT PIVOT mount also. You can run that separate to the LT 110 mount but it will take up some additional room on the reciever especially if your running an Troy or other rear folding sight. It works though and co witnesses perfectly.

    I got to zero it today and at 50 yards it was perfect, first three rounds were 6 inches high and right. Next three rounds were 3 inches right and the 3rd 3 were all in the X ring along with the next 21 rounds. I was real proud of myself but at 100 I was high and to the right the target had no shoulder left.

    I did not make a change because it was so on at 50 yards!

    Remember your EOtech is 1/2 MOA @ 100 yards. So that's 1/4 MOA at 50 yards and 1/8 MOA @ 25 yards.

    I had students attempting to zero @ 25 meters and they couldn't figure why they couldn't get it to zero close in.

    Just a reminder.

    Well, technically, the MOA doesn't change with distance - Minute of Angle is, well, an angular measurement, so they are always 1/2 MOA clicks. That just means that it will move the POI 1/2 inch at 100 yds, 1/4 inch at 50, and 1/8 inch at 25.

    I always zero it 25 mith mine anyway, because with the M4-length barrel and standard 62gr bullets the POI should be very close to the same at 25 and 250, with the entire flight path within those ranges never going out of the "bottle" of a man-sized target. You might want to try that, Timmy, just to see how it works for you. (Note that if you're dead on at 25, you'll be several inches high at 100.)

    P.S. SkyGod - thanks for all that info; I know what I'll be buying before I head back over there!
    A man fires a rifle for many years, and he goes to war. And afterward he turns the rifle in at the armory, and he believes he's finished with the rifle. But no matter what else he might do with his hands - love a woman, build a house, change his son's diaper - his hands remember the rifle.
