I just purchased an EOTECH 512 for a Bushmaster A2 carbine. I am new to both the rifle and the optics. I am told I need an ARMS #2 mount for the optic so that I can still use the iron sights. Is this the best way to go? What should I pay for this mount and where should I buy it? The optic comes pre-mounted. Does this mean it is pre-zeroed in? TIA. Russ

You certainly could use a #2 with a 512. The site ends up sitting pretty high though. I wonder if you can use an ARMS #39 and mount the 512 over the hand guards and co-witness through the 512. Hmmm. . . I have a flat top upper so I don't have this issue. Hopefully someone with the same set up can steer you right. Welcome to the wonderful world of the evil black rifle.

#39 will not allow co-witness, Precision Reflex makes a very solid forward carrying handle mount that will co-witness your 512 with the iron on your A2. Precision Reflex mount comes in hi ride or low ride version the hi ride will work with the taller double heat shield handguards and low ride will work only with the standard round handguard.

SMGLee: as someone new to the black rifle and optics I'm afraid the majority of your post has gone over my head (co-witness?). I do well with pictures -- do you have one of the setup that you are talking about? :-) Where can I find this mount and what should I expect to pay? TIA Russ

CO-Witness basically means that you will look through your irons, through your EOTech to your front post. The dot of the EOTech will be sitting on top of the front post. So when/if your EOTech dies you can see your iron perfectly and keep on fighting. I sell the PRI gooseneck for $100.00. Here is a pic of a CRTC gooseneck which works well with double heat shield HG's. C4 [email]sales@gandrtactical.com[/email] [url]http://www.hunt101.com/img/062539.jpg[/url]

Is that thing adjustable so you can place the irons in the lower 3rd of the EoTech window? If not, where does it place the irons? I like to look OVER the irons in this sort of set up.
