I am working on my last AR buid, this will be number eight and I am calling it quits after this one. I want to put a 4 x 32 ACOG on this one and was wondering about the front post interfering in the view. Do you see it at all? All of my AR's have the Weaver gas blocks and I use various BUIS on each one.

I am considering a standard A4 upper for the next one and going with a standard front sight. But if the front post can be seen with the ACOG, I will go with a Weaver GB.

Any helps and comments will be appreciated.

Thanks,

I have a TA11 on a 20" and on a bright sunny day I can pick up a bit of a shadow in the bottom of my field of view. It doesn't block out any of the target just makes it a little darker. I really don't notice it unless I'm looking for it. YOu should be fine.

you will see a slight blur if anything.

Actually,
The font sight post bothers me quite a bit. It dosn't effect the accuracy, the shadow jus distracts me.

I have a, ARMS #38 riser for the firearm the ACOG is mounted on. Works great.

FWIW - I would be more worried about cheekweld than a slight shadow.

I have the TA11 on mine and yes I saw the blur. It bothered me so I had the post taken off...more money spent! Given a choice, I would not have a fixed front sight post on an AR with an ACOG.
