I have a full size GI/Vector RR, and I am considering mounting a Vortex SPARC II or SPARC AR.
Richard at BWE has topcovers with a rail mounted.
Has anyone mounted a Vortex to their Uzi and how did it work out?
Any preferences for red dot choices?
I was thinking of the AR, but someone more knowledgeable then me suggested the SPARC II because it will mount lower and co-witness with the irons.
I have mounted a couple of these and the customers were happy.

Others have copied it over the years and I got out of it probably 6 or so years ago.
All those are absolute co-witness with the red dot right on top of the front sight post. If you go with a rail on the topcover, I don't think any red dot will absolute co-witness to my knowledge. I've never tried a SPARC II but I know any of the Docter's, RMR's or Burris will NOT co-witness if you use a picatinny mount with those so I find it hard to believe a SPARC could get lower than one of those.

What RMR is that? Mainly curious what MOA that dot it.
I had a rail top cover and a cheapo red dot on the Uzi years ago. I could never shoot any better than my mediocre ability with the regular iron sights provide so I put the regular top cover back on. I'm not a competitive level shooter, just recreational Uzi shooting.
MHO, YMMV, etc.
I've got a stormwerkz rail and an aimpoint h1
awesome set up
it doesn't co-witness but I don't care. I never use the irons anyway
I don't have a full auto Uzi but have Burris fastfires mounted on my full size and mini semi rifles. Cowitness and hold zero well. I'm very happy with the setup.
