Default funky setup

I was looking for some advice. I really like my iron sights on my Para USA AR15. Is there any way to raise the scope that I'd like to install so I can still use my Iron Sights?

If your scope has a true 1x setting you can use the irons through the scope with rings that cowitness.

Getting a scope higher than irons would take you from a cheek weld to a beard weld...

You might look more into detachable rings of some sort if you dont or cant go the cowitness route.

You can also install a detachable carry handle that will let you use the irons through a see through base. Those types of scope mountings dont work that well due to the extreme height.
