...allows for a scope to be off to the side a little so you can still use the iron sights? I want to put a scope on my AR so I can shoot at longer distances and at the same time be able to use the iron sights for closer targets....is there such a mount for the AR?

I know I've seen one. I thought it was on the LaRue site that recent threads had directed my attention to, but I just looked and don't see it there. I know I've seen mounts for ARs that leave the scope at a cant to the left.

Maybe try posting this in the optics forum? You might get better responses. Sure enough someone in the centerfire or optics forum will be able to help- there are a LOT of knowledgeable folks on CG.

Most people will use a red-dot optic @ 1 o'clock or 45deg.

You would NOT want the scope offset, as it would mess with your doping and level.

It's better to put this offset:

Here is a review that Maxicon did on various mounts. I am sure that you will be able to find one in here that will allow you to still use your open sights.

I am kind of partial to the American Defense Recon S style of mount.....pretty sure that is what I am looking for. Thank all for the information and 5968 for the link.

hey jicko what mount is that. I have only seen offset mounts that place the red dot infront or behind the acog mount. I would love to have that

Please consider using a Mark Burkett mount or a DD 1 o'clock mount or even the cheap YHM 45deg mount... for the docter...

The docter on top of the ACOG is very unusable....

I will take LaRue over ADM anyday!!! Also, that mount will not allow you to use your iron sights as you stated in your OP. (pretty sure that is what I am looking for????)

If you want 1 mounting soln and not want to get 2 mounts(scope mount and burkett mount)... you can do this...
