I just took a sight picture thru a acog ta-47 and this is the sight picture i want.
it is 2x and was mounted on top of a carry handle. no front sight problem.
what is the reccomended mounting  if used on a flat top? riser and mount? I would prefer if the whole thing were lever [q.d.]
is this a good choice?

I have one on the carry handle, as described, it worked great.  I put it on a flat top, and the front sight became a problem for me, so it is back on the handle.  I used a TA51 adapter (made for the bigger ACOGs), it worked fine at that mounting height.

do you mean that with the 'adapter' this ta47 was now properly mounted on the flat top without front sight interfearance?
would i just be better off with a 4x
[ larger ] acog?

Alan, sorry to butt in, but does anyone know if the ARMS #19 will raise a Compact ACOG high enough so the A2 front sight will not interfere with the field of view?  Wes at MSTN believes the ARMS is slightly higher than the TA-51.

I am going to order an ACOG next week, but not sure if I am headed for problems with the A2 tower.
