Default ar sights

okay, this is what i would like to do. now does anyone know if this is possible..

i want to have iron sights and a scope on my AR. now. i know you can have this, however all i can find only allows iron sights usage with removal of scope. i was hoping for being able to shoot with my rion sights, raise my head slightly and shoot using my scope. in other words. both sights functional simultaneously. any ideas?

Wat kind of scope r u wanting? On my M4 i use the factory A1 front sight, use a midwest industries flip up rear sight, and have an Eotech scope. I like this configuration because i have my Eotech when i want it and when i want my iron sights i flip up the rear and i can still see them through my EOtech. If ur wanting a ranged scope u could probably use a riser

im a big fan of the A1/A2 fixed carry handle for a do it all rifle. a see thru picatiny scope base screwed onto the handle with a dot scope or a small fixed power is the do it all solution. dont have to worry about the sights hanging up stuff or whether your front and rear is compatable.

just my opinion.

This is probably the best option for what you want to do. Many of the carry handle scope mounts have the see-thru option that allows you to use your iron sights and have a scope mounted at the same time. It can be a fixed carry handle or a removeable one depending on whether you have an A2 or A4 type AR. Here's a link for what type of mount to look for:

I couldn't find an example of this setup. While at a Police demonstration, I was using a
tactical AR with an ACOG on the top and iron sights at a 45° to the right. If your
scope fails, you rotate your gun and use the Irons. Anyone know what i'm talking about?

This might be a part used but i doubt it:
