I've been thinking about getting a 4x or 6x scope for my AR, but my rifle's fixed carry handle has optics sitting high.

My question is, do AR's sight in well with a high cheek weld?
Has anyone else had problems with this?
Any input is welcome, thanks for the help.

If you really want to put optics on your AR,I'd suggest buying a flat top receiver for your upper.
Putting scopes on top of the carry handle is a bad idea,and most will run out of adjustment range before you can sight it in at a useful range.

I didn t think of the adjustmennt range, I just figured POA would be way off. The scope I'm looking at says its ideal for carry handle, but I'm sceptical.

Thnx for the reply
