I finally got around to free-floating my carbine and now I have a long rail between my front and rear flip-up sights. They will be folded down most of the time, and I can't figure out where the best place to mount my EOTech would be....

On the back of the receiver, in the middle or out on the front rail?

Whattaya think?


p.s. Pics are always welcome

It's a matter of personal preferance. I started all the way out and finally moved all the way infront of the ARMS 40. I didn't like how the weapon balanced with the sight all the way out there.

It really should go out as far as possible.

Why do you say this?

I found that I like it closer to my eye. The farther the sight is away from the eye the bigger the recticle gets.

Why don't you try it in all three positions, and keep it mounted where YOU like it the best.
With that said, I mount mine on the FF rails

My EOTech is the bigger model that uses AA batteries. Combined with a LaRue mount, the main body of my EOTech sits on the forward end of the flattop receiver with the battery housing hanging out over the hand guard. I really like this mounting profile. The EOTech is far enough forward, yet the rifle maintains a good balance.

I tried mounting my EOTech out on the railed handguard to move it further forward, but I didn't care for either the sight picture (smaller field of view), or the weight placement.
