I plan on added either an aimpoint, eotech, or trijcon to my new my but im just not sure where to put it whether to mount it on top of the carry handle, in front of the carry handle where the rail sites can be seen through the scope as a backup, or remove the carry handle all together. any suggestions or opinions would be great or even pics of how you guys decided to mount. Thanks.

This is what im working with if that helps picture it...

just my opinion, but if it were mine, I'd mount the optic as far forward on the receiver rail as possible, and stick a folding BUIS behind it. To help pay for this, you can always sell the carry handle in the EE.

I'd take off and keep the carry handle, buy the optic and mount and buy the BUIS later. Shame to sell a colour co-oridnated handle.

The EOtech and Aimpoints aren't well suited to carry handle mounting and mounting optics so high up always has cheekweld issues.

If you go with the Aimpoint or Eotech and your HG are solid enough to hold a zero, I would leave the CH attached and put the optics on the HG and cowitness the sights.

If the HG are not suitable for optics then remove the CH and keep as a BUIS and put the optics on the receiver where they are most comfortable for you.

A compact ACOG will work nicely on top of the CH. Full-size ACOG works best on the receiver.

My $.02.

It's a YHM 2-piece. They're not Free Floating and aren't the best place to put an optic. You want the optic mounted up on the receiver in this case.

No delta ring or HG cap behind the FSB...looks FF to me but I'm not that familiar with the YHM rails.
