I have an Eotech on an AR flat top mounted directly on the carbine's rail. I also have a GG&G flip up A2 rear sight to the rear of the Eotech mounted to the same flat top rail.
Has anyone else experienced this?
1. It is hard to get a comfortable cheek weld using the AR's collapsable stock that will allow a full view through the Eotech. Just not a good posititon for me, perhaps due to a bad back. It just feels like I'm scrunching down too far. Strains muscles, etc.
2. When you "co witness" with rear sight flipped up, the point where dot, front post, and rear aperture come together is in the upper third of Eotech screen. I would like it in the bottom third.
So, all I need is a short "elevation" rail to raise the Eotech while leaving the A2 alone. Has any one seen one for sale? Any alternate solutions or other suggestions? I've been asking for a while and nobody seems to know either what I'm talking about, why getting cheek weld that low is uncomfortable, and why I don't want the carbine's iron sights taking up 2/3 of the Eotech's field of view. So, I need some advice from experienced folks.
