Will a 10x Super Sniper mounted in med Leupold QRW's on a 1" rail to a flattop clear an ARMS 40 folded?
Yes it does, see below!
Will the scope picture in the above setup be distorted be front sight?
No distortion at all!
No, at 10x the scope will look right thru the FSB.
BTT for the clearance question .......
