Cowitness has nothing to do with whether it's a cantilever or not.

depending on the height of the mount/spacer

the low mounts if it even does will probably co-witness in upper third or maybe even fourth.

tall or cantilever mounts are the ones that co-witness and depending on brand,height or spacer is where it will co-witness.

LaRue cantilever will put the irons in the lower 1/3rd. I use the cantilever with a Troy BUIS.
