    Show me where you mount your red dot (EO tech, aimpoint, etc.)

    I was taught the further forward the better but I see everyone runnin there's a lot closer to the rear site...

    Am I wrong?

    A heavier red dot is best moved to the rear, so that the rifle balance is preserved. A smaller one, doesn't matter.

    My eotech I had mounted as far forward as it would go on my carbine. Then with my aimpoint, its about 2/3rds forward on the rail:

    I think its a balance between rifle balance and visual performance.
    This is what mine looks like:
