I'm considering a full size KAC (Knight's Armament) 200-600m folding rear sight to use with some regularity on my precision AR, but have questions of fit.




I'll be putting the rear sight underneath a Primary Arms 4-14x44mm scope on a Bobro QD mount (mount height: 1.420 from top of 1913 to tube center).




The two sights look to be the same height folded, as it's largely only the windage knob size and width of the sight housing that is the difference between the two. It seems that fitting the standard rear sight under my scope *should* work (as the cheapie Magpul BUIS fits fine), but I wanted to double check here.




I'm pretty ignorant about all this, so there may be something obvious I'm missing.

Why not get a set of the KAC micro 45* offsets and be done with it? You don't have to worry about clearance issues or removing your scope to use them.

I used one on my SR25 with a KAC mount that measured 1.4" center and had no issues whatsoever with cleareance. Hope that helps some.


ETA: Here's an older picture of how it used to look when I first got it. It's since been updated to mimic an ECC now with a different rail, upper, MAMS, and offset BUIS'

Because I'm not tactical enough.

I'm asking about the standard sized rear sight with the larger windage knob rather than the micro at this point, unfortunately, but I appreciate the info.
