Shooters rarely fit their AR-10s/AR-15s with an extended-eye-relief scope, but it was a natural fit. Had we used a slightly lower riser, we could have easily co-witnessed (adjusted to the same point of impact) the optic and the flip-up sights. We use a Swarovski spotting scope to watch our results downrange.
Advantages of the Ruger include extra rails for the hand guard and a 19-inch-long top rail. Here we are co-witnessing the supplied backup iron sights with the self-powered Trijicon RMR dot sight that never needs batteries, and thanks to tritium power, it is always on ($490 from Brownells).
