I put one of these on my Armalite AR10 so I can co-witness my iron sights through my Aimpoint Comp M2. Since the AR10 has a larger carry handle, I had to drill out the mounting hole to line up with the hole on the carry handle. This setup works great with an Aimpoint due to the eye relief but I haven't found a scout type scope with enough eye relief to work with the scope being that far away from my eyes.
