I just bought my first AR - a new CR6920. A newbie. The only AR I've shot before was my brother-in-laws at an indoor range with a red dot on it and was amazed on the accuracy and consistency. I live in AZ, like to shoot outdoors a lot and have shot a lot of other rifles and pistols with iron sights so think I'll primarily shoot iron but would like to occasionally shoot with an optic at closer distance. I really don't want to have to remove the optic to flip up my rear sight. It's pretty dang confusing trying to find the best way to have an optic mounted that is above the iron sights. I see some people mount iron sights at 45 degrees but I prefer not to. Seems like to get what I want the optic would be really high, maybe uncomfortably high? Maybe I could mount the optic at 45 degrees? I'd appreciate any advice y'all might have.
