setting up an AR with optics....

I'm waiting for my Stag Ar to come in- and am now trying to plan out accessories- I would love some assistance on the following:
I would like to put a 3x-9xAO x ?? scope on the top of the rifle, and an Aimpoint or Eotech to the right side of the scope for CQ drills- has anyone played with this set up- where did you get your rails, what type did you use, how did it feel to "canter" the weapon to utilize the CQ site-PICS of your set ups would be an AMAZING help- since I learn alot from looking- OR tell me this is a FOOLISH idea and you tried it and it sucks or something like that...
Thanks in advance

I have a Colt HB and just to improve accuracy I did away with the top receiver (carry handle) went with a flat top receiver improved accuracy alot and allowed multiple rail sytems to do just what your seeking, but this was more for a sniping rifle setup not an assault rifle setup,not sure what your going for!

Have you tried the Acog type sight for your AR15?

It's a common setup for 3 gun rifles. Here are a couple.

I'd definitely recommend the LaRue LT-104 for the scope. Puts the eyepiece right where you want it vertically and horizontally. There are many good offset mounts. I linked the one I would use on top of the post - from Matt Burkett. It's the same one being used by Jerry Miculek in the last picture.
