Does anyone know a good place to get a mount riser for a weaver flattop?? I think I may need to raise my scope up a bit so that I can have both it any the flip rear sight mounted at the same time.



Another question would be is there a see-thru riser out there tall enough to allow use of the flip up iron sights without having to take the scope off??

I had that riser and it was ok, but I got this one about 6 months ago and like it a ton more

The one piece scope mount.



I can remove my scope and put it on as many times as I like and it stays dead on.



I've found that the picatinni rail on those cheap risers are out of spec. I do have one just like the tapco thats been linked to at midway.

You have to keep in mind that no matter who you buy it from, or whose name is on it, most of those are made by the same company, the quality is the same.



Here's my 3 AR's, the one on the top right has a riser and regular rings, and it works just fine, the better set up is the one on the top left, it has the Millett Extra High steel rings on it, those are great!

In short is there a loss of accuracy or range in mounting a scope low vs high. Low as in not clearing the FS. Thanks





PS I saw those millets at Gander look nice, but they didnt have the high or x-high for me.

My first flat top was the varmint rifle in the upper right corner of the photo, first set of rings I bought wouldn't clear the objective ring on the scope, second set cleared the objective ring, but were too low to see through the scope, at that point I got the riser that's shown on it.



I haven't had any real problems, but consider that using a separate riser and rings gives you twice as many screws that could come loose, as well as a little bit more flexibility in the mounting system that could cause a lack of accuracy. The EXTRA HIGH Milletts on the hunting rifle have worked out just fine, and I may at some point buy another set for the varmint rifle.
