I am considering an Aimpoint CompML2 2x for my carbine.It wears a fixed A2 front
sight.Is 2 power enough magnification to overlook or blot out the front sight,or will a
fold down front sight be needed for clear red dot picture?

Before someone corrects me,I should have stated in my post that I understand about
co-witnessing the dot sight with the front sight post.I've seen that done with an
unmagnified dot sight.

I know the front sight pretty well disappears as seen thru a 4 power ACOG,so I'm
curious to know if the same thing happens with the CompML2 2X sight.Thanks.

Be sure to try before you buy. I've never handled one but you rarely see them and i often hear complaints about the FOV. "Like looking through a drinking straw" some have said.

Also, it's personaly opinion but I think 2x is just about right for being really annoying with a front sight post in the way. Like you said, 0x is fine and 4x or more is fine. In between it can be more annoying.
