where is the best location to mount a trijicon tripower on a ar15 car carry handle upper and what would be the best mounting system to do that?

thanks book:
thats about the same thing i was comming up with. i did see that a #39 arms mount would put the site in front of the handle but by time you pay for the mount and removable ring, you might as well put another $100.00 into it and get a flat top upper.

1998rrc,

Have you thought about a gooseneck mount? I've seen EOTechs mounted using that mount and the Trijicon TriPower should be no different. I don't have the specs in front of me but I think the TriPower mounts to a standard picatinny rail. The gooseneck will work for you if you don't have a flattop.

Hope this helps...

Best,
Phong

when you say gooseneck is that a mount that attaches to the carry handle and extends down in front of the handle between it and the front sight? is so, that what the ARMS mount i mentioned earlier does, the only problem i see is the cost

well i did find a "goose neck" mount from AIM for $19.97. Quality of course not the same as a ARM mount but i didnt expect it. this does place the tripower in a better sigthing position than on top of the carry handle and the mount does allow for full use of the fixed sights.
