I have a Rockriver AR with the A2 front sight and carry handle. A few years back when I first started looking at AR-15's at a local gun shot I found a trade-in and it had this set-up but with a red dot mounted on the handguard, I would like to this with mine now. My question is, i'm looking at a lower end EOTech, I think it was a 517. Will it be tall enough so that the front sight does not cover the reticle yet still can use the irons? The gun I looked at years ago the reticle set right on top of the front post. Edit: Also forgot to mention that I will be mostly using this gun for night time hog hunting, maybe some dear hunting and plinking at the range. Thanks for the help.
