Default Mounts to go above scope for tactical sight?

I want a combo of scope and tactical sight for my en route R-15. I want the tactical sight to sit on top of my scope. I cannot seem to find the setup I'm looking for.

check MidwayUSA and Brownell's. they have rings that have the ability to mount a light or laser on the upper ring portion.

Just curious....how does this affect your cheek weld, trying to elevate your head enough to look over the top of your scope?

You might look into an angled offset mount from the rail and rotate the rifle. Works pretty well and no cheek weld problems.

I looked into that but don't like the idea of having to rotate my rifle.

OP,
You do realize that as the distance between the barrel centerline and the sight centerline increases, the degree of difficulty increases for trying to hit a target at a distance that you didn't zero the sight/optic for. IMO, it is easier to practice and learn how to use your regular optic. Been there, done that....just trying to save you time, money, and frustration. If you want it because it looks cool, so be it.

JTJ's suggestion is a good one if you want that second sight that badly.

Not totally sure what you're saying I guess? I want the ability to, when driving swamps, quick pull up on critters and make longer shots on deer.

Look for a red dot scope combo.
