Hey guy,

I just got a new AR-10 and I'm looking to do a scope red dot combo. I was thinking about getting the SWFA Super Sniper 10x or Millet TRS-1 with a Burris P.E.P.R mount and then putting a Burris Fastfire2 on that. The only thing I am worried about is that the red dot will not clear the turret on a tactical scope. Anybody have any experience with this? If it won't work any ideas?

Thanks

If you have target turrets, you will need to purchase an 1/2" riser to be able to see the red dot.

Millet TRS-1. Entry level target scope. They make MOA reticle/MOA turrets now too. Optical clarity is decent.

It's no Leupold Mk4, but it works for now until I can purchase something nicer. :)

Missed out on a 4.5-14x50 Leupold Mk4 with illuminated reticle for $925....sigh...

The 1/2" Risers I'm using:

IIRC Burris also makes a riser.

I tried it on a PEPR but quickly discovered a 1 o'clock mount works better - closer to the bore axis and you don't need to break your cheek weld - just slightly rotate the rifle.

If you use a riser on top of the PEPR your sight will be way up there.

Make sure your 1 o'clock mount sits out far enough to clear both the objective and the windage turret.

I tried using an aimpoint micro in a 45 degree YHM mount, but it sat too close to the scope and was occluded by the objective and turret.

I decided to go with the PEPR above since I'm already used to it with my ACOG/Jpoint combo.
