I'm awaiting delivery on the RRA flat top that will be the starting point for my Feinstein commerative EBR. Planning on topping it with an aimpoint and BUIS. Can I mount these with a 30 buck riser, or do I need something fancier?

TIA,
tt

$30 isnt going to get you a quality mount

Think LaRue, PRI, Knights, ARMS.





My current AR is pretty functional with a OKO mounted this way, guess I'm not clear on what the other mounts offer.

my friend has his mounted in that fashion with the aimpoint ring. sits almost perfect but only down fall was he cant put any buis on it and it is a heavy set up compared to any other ring offered by some of the better companies out there

Hi tommytrauma,

If you have to yous IRON sight will you have to take that base off?



That's a new problem I just discovered after posting the initial question. I pulled the OKO off the riser on my existing weapon, and put the aimpoint on. Seemed to sit and function OK, but when I put my bushie flip up BUIS on behind it, I found that the BUIS sits up too high to use. I have to pull my cheek off the stock to find the peep site. What mount can I use that would allow me to use the flip up BUIS if I had to?

Yeah, this whole pic thing is still a challenge to me, being an unfrozen caveman paramedic and all. Edited for better / smaller pic.

Would a Larue allow me to use both the red dot and the BUIS?

This is frustrating shit. I'm tempted to go back to iron sights.

You could do a 22M68 and a 22M68SP $109.00. It is the same height as the one above just not a cantilever.

I have guys that will also buy a set of 22H or 22m and split the set make the mount $54.50 for each mount. Then the have more money for the Optic. I get PD that do this and other groups the do this. I have one set up like this!

So this 22H mount sits right on the flat top with the BUIS behind it? Do you need to pull the aimpoint off to use the BUIS, or can you flip up the BUIS and use it looking right through the aimpoint?

Thanks
