Default Cowitness a Nikon Monarch Dot Sight VSD 1x30?

Does anyone know what height mount I need to cowitness on an AR with standard sights/Magpul BUIS? Got a good trade with a buddy on one and need to mount it properly. I've searched and called Nikon but there's no definite answers other than a "low" mount. What is the size in inches? I'd like to either get the height for absolute or 1/3 cowitness.

I've also heard the LaRue Tactical Eotech QD Mount LT110 works but I'm not spending over $135 on a red dot mount because I'm that cheap.

Thanks!

FWIW, I found a review on amazon for anyone else wondering the same thing.

"You can co-witness through your irons with a 1/2" riser (I used Yankee Hill's 4" piece and it works great), or you can co-witness your irons in the bottom third of the optic with a 3/4" riser." He's saying he'll shoot it on a 6.8 and 5.56 so I think it's safe to assume it's an AR.

I have that sight. 1/2" riser for co witness is correct.

I bought an el cheapo 'UTG' 1/2" riser for like $18?

I moved that nikon over to a 10/22, and use a vortex razor red dot on the riser for the AR. (also cowitness)

I did cut the rail short so my troy rear flip up is on the flat top base, not the riser.
