So I have this nice EOTech and my A2 16" post ban bushy hbar. I have an Arms#2 carry handle mount but thats pretty high. I am considering moving the EO forward. So options:
Swap A2 for flat top upper. Add arms #40. stock hand guards. mount forward on flat top. (~$200)
Keep A2, add stable rail handguards, like RAS, FFRAS, Daniel Defense, et al. Mount EO on rails, co-witness with irons. (~$300)
What do you guys think?
I could do both, but $$$.
As for whats the rifle for, plinking, 3-gun, looter protection etc.
Your option to change over to a flat top is the best. #40 can wait a bit if your funds are tight. Your next option is to buy a forward scout mount from company like Precision Reflex or Bennie Cooley. they make a forward gooseneck mount that will mount your EOTech over the handguard. Mounting to a rail handguard is not a good idea but using a RAS is probably your best choice in that route.
