I'm new at this so bear with me. I have a Wilson Combat M4T that I would like optics for. What should I get? What is ACOG and co-witnessing? My rifle is a flat top with a front sight. I am going to buy a flip up rear sight. Can I have optics and use the iron sights as backup? Please recommend optics and mounts.

Niko, I will tell you about what I prefer. I have a Aimpoint M2 ARMS 22M68 ring and cantelever spacer . I allows me to co witness. That means if my Aimpoint goes down or battery dies I can use my iron sights through my Aimpoinnt. A ACOG is a scope that is made buy trijicon.

Here is a shot of how I configured my M-4. The Aimpoint M68 CCO is GREAT![img]http://www.imagestation.com/picture/sraid81/pbf92392f6e038524a5c9f3e8f84213b9/fafd7829.jpg[/img]

go aimpoint with the mount of your choice for your m4...i recently went thru a 3-day tactical carbine class and fired 1500 or so rounds thru my m4. it sported a new aimpoint with the arms 22m68 throw lever mounted on an arms 39, which has the flip up rear sight already attached to it. i've been shooting ar's/m-16's for the last 30 years, and the aimpoint is the ticket for me. fired from 3 yards out to 200 yards with mine. if i can see it, i can hit it. great setup. btw - 10 other people in the class had aimpoints and everyone's concensus was/is that is the way to go.

clarification on my reply above....meant to write ARMS 38 base (not 39).....and the aimpoint is the M2 model....... good luck!
