I was sitting around doing nothing tonight and decided to make something. Opened the safe and looked for something to make. Su-16CA cought my eye. Lots of noobs ask about co-witness so I figured I give somthing a shot. After a little thinking I made my way into the garage and came back with this.....

Its kinda a joke. I really have no intent to shot with it on like that but again I needed something to do. made it out of 6061 aluminum I had sitting around. On another note It points very well. Iron sights can see through the bottom 1/4 of the glass and the red dot can be seen in the center of the glass if you look over the iron sights. The dot is not sighted in and the mount is not level but it gives you an idea.

Yah, OK. Bad Idea.

good idea though. I think they only way to really co-witness the SU is if the rear and front sites were higher.

you do not want to mount anything to the barrel. Bad idea, could ruin your accuracy.

LOL, guys its a joke;)

I'd never shot an optic that close to the muzzle. It shows what I think is the only way to cowitness on a SU.

Yes....I was very bored:p
