glass or sight would you put on a colt 6920?and will it clear the iron front sight?

You want a scope on a carbine? Or do you want a different optic like an Eotech or Aimpoint?

yeah that's what I was kinda thinking some kind of sight. I have a EoTech on a free floating barrel, but the 6920 has the iron sight and am not sure it will have a clear sight of view, that's why I wanted to know what everyone is doing?

After training with it for awhile, you won't even notice the FSP. I use the Eotech, and have found it to work out quite well without the use of a riser. Stick it on the flattop, and you are all set.

will the dot clear the front pin on the iron sight?if I mount it with no risers?

it will be center with the front sight. the larue rail will put your irons in the lower third.



i had an aimpoint that had absolute co-witness with the irons and it never bothered me on bit and i actually preferred it.

have another aimpoint that is in a larue cantilever mount and it co-witness with the irons in the lower third of the glass so the dot is un-obstructed when looking through the aimpoint only.

imo i rather the reddot's co-witness with the irons.

The dot is right on the FSP if you are nose to the charging handle. If you are using it in more of a CQB manner, your head (at least mine is) is up a bit higher, and the Eotech dot is well above the FSP.

So if you use the Eotech and put it on a mount, like the LaRue hirise, the front sight
only appears in the bottom third of the window, and when you are using the
sight correctly you focus on the target, making the FSB almost disappear completely.

Works very well and you can still go to backup irons of you need to using a
flip up rear.

See how high the EoTech sits?

Very true.

I like the idea of being able to verify my irons and optics with a co-witness.
