Sorry if I was not clear .

You don't like the co-witnessed iron sights when looking through your red dot, but you like the iron sights for backup.
I think your quote saws what I mean . I only use the red dot by it self . If it fails , then I use the flip up irons . Thats why I said this .

One of the things I love about red-dots is . when and if they fail you can use you irons right through them . No need to take it off
Meaning unlike a magnified optic that would need to be removed to use your back up irons . Maybe I'm missing something , are the back up sights different with a red dots then they are with a scope . I always thought a back up sight was just that . If your primary optic fails you can use your irons for back up .

Sure I get the co-wittiness concept I just don't like how it blocks my field of fiew .
