Default Will I need a rail riser for...

I am considering buying me a Lucid HD7 (Christmas gift.. hehe) It has a rail system but i figure it might be a little too low to line up with the front sight! Anybody with experience or any idea?

I also got me a NcStar 4x Zoom little red dot sight at the gun show. I couldn't get it to line up with the sight it all. I am figuring it will need a rail riser, also. Or maybe i just suck at zeroing in a sight!

To add, i bought me a "Medium UTG rail riser" 13 slot on amazon for just under $15. It is .81" high. So just around 3/4 inch. I hope it will work! Forgot i bought it with another order a few days ago!

As Pure said, your good. I run one with Magpul BUIS, perfect lower 1/3 co witness.

I too prefer 1/3rd co-witness over perfect co-witness as well

Dont throw the box away on that NC scope. You will need it when you ship it back for repair or replacement.

Not sure how to take your post! Are you saying if there is ever a issue? Or saying I got a bad apple!

Are most of them bad illumination or falling apart? Or crappy reticle alignment?
