Is it possible to come up with a mounting solution that puts a Colt 3x or 4x carry handle scope on a flat top receiver, close to the normal (iron) sight plane height? Like ARMS #10? I think the 10 replicates the CH channel, but don't know if there's any clearance for the scopes mounting nut underneath, especially the spring loaded 'wing' nut. Any ideas anyone?

Tapco sells what you want. I don't know how good it is.

www.tapco.com/product_information.asp?number=OPT0930&back=yes&dept=4&last=3





They also sell the mount seperatly, but I don't see it on the web page.

Oh yeah, the old Leapers MNT-996....

Between 'Leapers' and 'Weaver rail', I think my BM upper and Colt scope would mutiny!! I'd use it as a last resort I guess.

Any others?

I used an acog mount that worked excellent for me. Both the ACOG and the colt scope are made to mount on the carry handle so any flat top mount for these types of scopes work great. I happen to have a flat top acog mount in like new condition on the EE in the optics section at this time. It may require some minor alteration but should work great for what you are trying to do.
