516 question
So I decided to go with the eotech 516. I want to put a magnifier eventually and have the space for a buis as well. I have a flat top ar. Does anyone know if I can fit a 516 , magnifier, and a buis all on the flat top???

If you get a flip up BUIS you may be able to fit it beneath the magnifier. Though you may need a riser for the magnifier and/or 516 to accomplish this.

I don't think you'll be able to use the magnifier infront of a fixed buis because of eye relief, you may get paralax. Plus the 516 takes up some rail real estate so you might not have room unless you have an extended rail on your handguard/float tube.

Yes like that lol. I don't have a free float but I have a drop in 4 rail. So If I move up the 516 to the end should be able to fit both. It'll be a while before I get the magnifier thought. How do I like the 516 over the 517 or xps?
