I will explain this in a way most will understand. Your scope magnifies whats on the other side. A 4X scope shows you whatever you are looking at as if you were 4X an object 100 yards away looks as if it was only 25 yards away...4X closer. If using a 10X scope the same image would appear to be 10 yards away. Now keep in mind EVERYTHING in front of the lens is seen as it would be at the distance you are looking. So when you are looking at a car 100 yards away, even though you see the car at X times closer...the front post of the AR15 is also seen as if it was 100 yards away, which will be nothing but a blur or black spot. Now when you use a scope to view an object too close all you see is a blur because its like you walking up to that object and placing it up to your are too close to focus your eye on it. In the case of an AR15 with scope both the A2 front post and the too close object mush together since both are now viewed as if they were too close for your eye to focus on.
