M4 Top Rail Question


Recommended Posts

I am planning on replacing the OEM top rail, to mount my LarRue short mount with an Aim Point T1, and have three options.

Side Armour Mod 2 long rail version.

Side Armour new Mod 2 short rail version.

Kips's top rail should be here very shortly.


Would appreciate input on how far forward, from the rear sight, the T1 needs to be placed to get a correct sight picture.

I still have the factory rail on my M4. I did purchase a Eotech XPS, and after 10min I put it on ebay. Why? Well, it was almost impossible to get a proper cheek weld with a optic. I know that the Aim Point will sit alot higher than the Eotech. So it may be an issue for you, or not. But I am curious to know, so keep us updated. You may want to look at Trijicons RMR, they sit alot lower, and may work. I think Im going to get tritium night sites and keep it at that.
