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. Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
