Have a dpms artic panther & a leupold 2-7 vx2 ordered. Can i use the extra high milletts or could i end up too close to the scope and need a mount to set everything forward? Thanks

The Picatinny rail on a flat-top may not let you mount the scope far enough forward for a comfortable position, especially in prone. I use an extended riser (1/2" high) made by Accuracy Speaks (available direct or from Brownell's) combined with standard-height rings. There's now a similar one available from Compass Lake Engineering. This gives me an extra 4" of rail and lets me mount a Leupold 6.5-20x50 LRT (a rather long scope) and gives me the option for an extra 15' of built-in elevation for long range work. I'm using Wiegand Combat rings (available from Brownell's) - they were inexpensive and work well, even though they don't have the macho look many seem to like.

If you like the KISS approach, go with the Armalite one piece mount. The only possible drawback is they are a little low but it will give you the forward offset needed for medium to long scopes. --RR [img]http://www.armalite.com/shared/images/armalite_scope_mount.gif[/img]
