Which is the BEST Red Dot for the 4595?? Will it Co-Witness with the Iron Sites? TIA
WHAT?! You mean like this?!Welcome aboard. How the RD comes set up from the manufacturer is a personal choice. A micro will offer less FOV and many, depending on cost will normally come with a tall (usually called a AR15 mount) and also a very short mount that sits low to the gun rail. A 30mm or 32mm RD will come with a mid mount that might give a co-witness, and if you want a 1/3 witness, you might need a 1/4 to 1/2" riser to make that work.
Hi-Point carbines are an odd animal in how the iron sights work with most red dots to setup like an AR15 in which has a huge following in how most people set their RD's up to work as a more military weapon, but there's lots of members here, that if you went to the Optics area of forum, you'd find your answer from those who set their carbines up and what it took.
Myself, due to how long the rear sight mount is made, you will probably need to cut off the front half of sight due to how short the mount rail is, so giving you that fact, you might want to change your way of whether you want iron witnessing to the RD or just using the RD alone. But both options are doable with a little bit of thought.
I think a $400-800 Aimpoint may be a bit excessive in this application. I would suggest checking out some of the Primary Arms options.OP, the best you can get is an Aimpoint. It'll run you more than the rifle, but you'll never have an issue w/ it - other than it fogging up if it was dropped.
I don't recommend it, but that is about the most money you can spend on a red dot, and it's really clear glass. I suggest you set a budget of what you're willing to spend, and if you post that number, you'll get all kinds of suggestions between that number and about 50% more - so you should really post a number that's about 66% of your true budget.
I quite agree, which is why I specifically said I don't recommend it, but it's damn clear glass til it fogs up. Holosun has excellent products as well.I think a $400-800 Aimpoint may be a bit excessive in this application. I would suggest checking out some of the Primary Arms options.
