    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.

    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.

    In the same outing? :confused:
    Look for a red dot scope combo.

    A problem I see with these is I need
    .5 inch risers to get the scope to eye level. Not sure how sturdy these would be on risers with the weight forward. Also would the front of my scope be to high for my red dot. I don't want to look down my red for and see the too of my scope.

    You can mount a light on top of a scope real easy. The light is usable right off the top of the scope. I have shot rifles equipped with a light on the scope. Once you acquire the target the light is enough to see the crosshairs and target. You can shoot targets just as fast as you can acquire them with the scope. Most scopes are 25mm which happens to be the diameter of a 12ga magazine.

    I have one of these lights. It has given me 3 years of service. Take the pocket clip off the light to mount on a long gun.

    Nothing to go bad about this light

    Kill two birds with one stone and get a Trijicon A.C.O.G.

    It's a good medium power scope and a fast tactical sight all in one tube.
