Problem: Scope eye relief Solution: ARMS 38 super extended Swan Sleeve OR Some Modular rail Like Troy?

As my title tried to condense I have an eye relief problem with my optic. I have a Bushmaster Varminter w/ Leuopold VX-II scope mounted. Even with the full length rifle stock and the scope as far forward on YHM risers on the flat top upper I get a better field of view with my head way back on the stock or in the middle. This could be acceptable BUT, I want to, and just tonight infact, install an adjustable stock to effectively "choke-up" on the rifle and bring some of its weight closer to me and get the benefits of an overall smaller rifle than a fence post. I installed a Vltor clubfoot BTY.

With the LOP on the new adustable stock shorter the scope needs to move way far forward.

So should I get the ARMS 38 super extended swan sleeve or a rail system?

My real question is about mounting a scope on the forend rail. No one ever has any photos of anything mounted on the top of their rail. I really wonder why ppl even have rails because most of the time there is never anything mounted. Anyway, the Troy rail looks interesting because it lines up with the receiver. ARMS 38 is not cheap at $180 but I would have a BUIS built in. Rail may be nice for a vertical grip since this sucker is front end heavy.

I'mnot normally into the complicated gear but things change.

Your thoughts?

hey McKeen... Don't know if this helps but, I'm experimenting with a long eye releif scope for my Dissipator. So far I like my quick view set up. Its an " A.R.M.S. INC." #36 S-EX OSR.

I have the same problem with using a scope on my Colt Elite. There is no way I can place my nose on the charging handle and have proper eye relief. From the photo, it appears that the A.R.M.S. #36 S-EX OSR would solve the problem. It looks like the scope is not in contact with the forearm. Even though this mount is expensive (to a fireman's wallet anyway), it is less expensive than installing a good quality rail forearm.

What are some other thoughts?

AtlantaMan - This A.R.M.S. extention is under $100 bucks. It Gives you alot of mounting options.
