    I want to mount the Eotech 512 on a flat-top AR receiver, also running MBUIS sights, with absolute co-witness.

    Can this be direct mounted, or will I need a riser.

    Thanks

    Just slap it directly on the upper and you'll be good.

    Any riser on the 512 would give a low 1/3 co-witness.

    Minimalist AR, I like it!

    What is that light mount?

    Mount directly and you are good to go.

    Looks like a VTAC. That's what I run, it's a fine mount, cheap and light.

    EOTech 512 mounted directly to receiver rail provides an absolute co-witness.

    Yep that's what it is. Bolted a short 1" rail section to the top hand guard. The mount bolts to that. Simple, effective, & solid.
    Thanks. I have 2 others more taticle. This 1 is a pass around gun. I don't even clean it. Just past 700 rounds. Do lube it though.

    Direct - that's why EoTech is preferred by many - no stinking rings! Clamp it on and sight in.
