Red dot work with ghost rings?


Recommended Posts

Just about every red dot on the market is too tall to cowitness with the stock ghost ring iron sights, and certainly with the rifle sights.


Your best bet for a low profile iron sight is either a docter/jpoint/pride fowler/irondot or an aimpoint micro.


However, even with these sights you can't cowitness with the irons.

If you're going to use any red-dot, the red-dot is your primary and the irons are backups. In the case in which your red-dot failed, you would completely remove your red-dot and use only the irons.


Which is why it's nice to have a throw lever, quick release mount (which is why it would be nice to have a proper 1913 spec rail etc).


But yes, it's one or the other.
