Which mount do I need to make my BUIS line up with the Aimpoint?

I want to order the mount and Aimpoint at the same time.

do you want an absolute co-witness or a lower third? larue will have what you want either way

Ok what is the difference? I know in the military you can pope up you rear sight and see all there in line.

If the rds and sights are sighted in for the same zero this will happen with 1/3 or abs.

I use a ARMS w/ cantilever mount.

With absolute co-witness the iron sights are "lined up" right in the dead center of your scope. This is good for flip up sights since you dont need to change head position at all.

Lower third co-witness, the sight is just a little bit higher up, so the iron sights line up in the "lower third" section of your red-dot lens. This is good for fixed sights, since it doesn't clutter up the optic as much, but you can still use the iron sights through the red-dot.

Ok I like the thought of the lower thirds. Which Larue mount should I look into?

I just ordered this mount and am very happy with it. The other option is the LaRue cantilever mount. It all depends upon where you want your mount on the rail.
