I put a light on mine so I can just hit the switch on the back for monentary on-off use. I don't like the cords and pad that always seems in the way.
It positions the light so I can just use one finger and easily turn on the light when I want and still have a grip for fast fire if needed.
If your scope goes south, just turn on the red dot, cant your semi auto rifle to a 45 degree angle and fire away, nice and compact and you can keep the scope down low to the rail.

So you'd have to turn the gun half sideways for it to work?

M4 (flat top receiver) with an Aimpoint. all you have to do is get the right height mount ( I used the shortest mount for the comp m4, and it will allow "co-witness" or use of both iron sights and optics at the same time.

also an m14 (clone) can do it. all you need is the right rings for the scope. and a mount that has a channel to allow you to use the irons.

I think of these 2 off hand, as i have them set up this way.

ive seen your M14 thats slickest most solid scope mount on one ive ever seen. you need to take a close up pic of that mount.

It's built into the receiver, http://www.lrbarms.com/m14receivers.html for more info (pics about halfway down the page).

Pete,

The term assault rifle is also used by the liberals like Hillary Clinton the UN and the like to make people think that every Black Gun is the same as its counterpart the full auto. We have been through this before re the Brady Bill crap from 1994 to 2004. The same type of BS they are spreading today about most of the guns used in Mexico's crimes and drug wars quote "CAME FROM THE US" That is BS also. In a statistical report it was found that less than 12% could be found or even closely related as coming from the US. But the same idiots want us to believe they are supplied form the USA. So they can impose more unconstitutional restrictions on you, I and all on this forum. And their quote " The Assault Rifles and other weapons "are mostly" coming from the US. This to form a foundation for an attack our second amendment rights. As they like the word Assault Rifle. That is why I will never use any term that they use to deceivingly attack our freedoms. Besides who assaults anyone with a standard AR-15 or semi auto rifle. Only a dirt bag now and then. Not the citizen who loves the sport.
Sorry but back to your question about Optics and Co-Witnessing. The best thing I can advise is get an AR-15 with a Flat Top. Buy a Rock River Dominator Rail and look at mounting an EOTech on it. This is one of the slickest ways to have a rear sight and optic at the same time. With the Dominator Rail you do not even have to flip up a rear sight if the optic fails. Therefore eliminating a fine motor skill function and doing away with the time it takes to perform the function of flipping up the rear sight under stress.
Sorry to get off on a tangent about the Liberals but here on the forum as well as I am sure in your case we take protecting our second amendment rights very seriously.

Mr. P

Once again I am envious of the fine rifles in the pictures. If I ever get up your way I am going to take you up on the Range Time Offer!!!!!!
Love that Mauser!
