Looking at arms #22 high throw lever rings for mounting a scope on a flat top ar, with a stand ard front sight block. Will the front sight get in the way, or do i also need some risers ?

Nope. I didn't like them with my 1.5-5x.

Here is an example of what a front sight (PRI in this case, rifle length) looks like through low magnification (4x).



Not really an issue, you only notice a dark fuzzy spot at the bottom.

I see that Warnes Ultra High Rights will clear your FSB. Might want to look into that.

Dayum, I was recently told by a dealer here on ARF that they will clear the FSB. I told him it was for 1.5-5x20mm VXIII. I bought a set and bushings.
(I havn't had a chance to try it yet)

Would the Larue one piece mount have raised it any higher?

probably not.

So what is a good QD system to have that provides a good sight picture when you are on 1.5 mag?

I'd be more concerned with getting the scope mounted far enough forward than the front sight issue. Typically, scopes of this type need an extended rail/mount for proper eye relief.

at 1.5x i would be using the optic more as a cqb optic and would be using the both eyes open technique.

that being said i would use the larue mount and not let the blurred front sight bother me too much or get a folding front sight since it would be more practical. i would think so at least, folding front sight over miles of risers and what not.

mounting to high would cause excessive height over bore and at further ranges it would give you problems.

Thanks. It sounds like the 22H will put the scope about as high as you want to go. Getting enough eye relief will seems to be the main issue with the 22H. (I was told by the dealer the eye relief would be fine.)

an arms #35QD and #35 medium rings will get you a little higher than the #22H's
