Default Eotech on a Rock River LAR15

Hey all I'm relatively new to the AR platform and I just got my first AR a Rock River LAR15 Tactical Operator model with the standard RRA rear iron sight

I also got a eotech sight for it, I'm just wondering if I mount the sight do I need to remove the rear iron sight?

Because I can't view the eotech with the rear sight on I have to look through it to use the sight.

Thoughts?

Learn to co-witness (look through both irons and optic when sighting) all the time if your irons aren't to in the way,or pick you up a set of flip-up irons.

Rock River Arms sells a sight specifically
for use with many Eotech sights. It is called the dominator2.

This should work for you.

Augi,

A picture of your rifle would be good! We are not sure if you are speaking about the traditional A-2 Removable Sight, A stand alone or flip up!
And as NCH mentioned they have the Dominator 2 which was specifically designed for use with the EOTech units. If you plan on using the Standard A-2 Removable Sight you will need a Cantilever Mount to tactically mount the EOTech on one of those! Sounds like a great rifle and I am sure you will enjoy it!

That's a regular removable sight. If I were you I'd put the dominator2 sight on it. I have one on my RRA AR-15 but I don't have an EOTech to put on it.

thanks for all your help an input, I called Rock River to see about the Dominator 2 and it turns out I got the Operator 2 LAR15 and it already has the Dominator 2 on there, duh...

so I'm going to fit my EOTECH and try to learn how to use it with the rear sight, I have the zero out the EOTECH now

Can you take a better pic of the upper receiver and rear sight? That does not look like the dominator2 sight to me. I'll look at mine tonight when I get home to be sure. Hopefully I'm just confused.

This is what the dominator2 should look like. I still don't think what you have is the dominator2. It has the extended front rail that is made to raise up the holo sight so the co-witness is right, I don't see this on yours
