Default AR Scope

Anyone have experience with a 2.5 x 10 x 56 rifle scope on an AR. I'm thinking about the Trijicon TR 22 green post. Appreciate your replys. John

Your going to have a hard time with the 56mm objective end hitting the hand guard unless you have really skinny hand guard on there . I would personally stay under 50mm , If you buy a decent quality glass 40mm will be just fine

They also make extension rails, allows you to push the scope forward as well as adding about a 1/2" of height. Picture attached

thats what i was thinkin, the lens may be too big unless you have high rings or a riser. trijicon is good stuff, ive never used the scopes but im sure they are great.
