    front sight post and holo sight picture

    For anyone out there who has an AR with a fixed front sight post and you have added a holo sight / red dot sight (no carry handle), does the front sight obscure your sight picture through the holo sight / red dot sight, or are you looking over the front sight post (it's out of view)?

    No. I had an EOTech on my AR and it did not interfere at all.

    Thanks for the response! Did you use a raised mount, or a standard mount for the eotech?

    Not at all IMO.

    Here is a view through my eotech 512



    With both eyes open, focused down range at your target, the eotech lays a nice little sight over your field of view and the front post really does not effect it much if any at all.


    I have no riser on my eotech you see in the picture. Just an accucam quick disconnect from GG&G.. and it does not raise the height at all.

    My 512 is mounted to the flat top and works perfect with backup sights

    The Eotech is made to co-witness with a standard AR front site, and when you have a BUIS mounted behind, in case the Eotech is damaged or battery failure your Iron sites work without having to remove Eotech.

    I run a 512 on a Colt 6920 and it works perfect in this way.
