After a few times on the range, I purchased MBUS flip up sights which I can use if needed but in order to use them, I need to remove the CP1.
If your desire is to be able to use either optical or cqb iron sights, you will need to buy a "spacer" to elevate your optics such as this sight:

or get a quick release for the optics (although I wouldn't recommend the quick release because every time I tried that, I had to re-zero the sight).
The best option I can recommend is a combination optical and red dot sight like the

I was originally saving for a more expensive piece of glass, but was leery of the "Made in China" stamp given the experiences I have had looking through other cheap glass from China. I was impressed when friends in my club offered high praise for Millett scopes and their generous warranty - any issues, send it in and they'll fix it. After hearing about other's experiences, looking at the quality of other Millett scopes (several friends have their scopes for hunting and long range target), reading several reviews on line and looking through it myself, I decided to get order one.
Best decision I made.
This scope is on par with scopes costing much more and with no discernible improvement or benefit over the Millett. After zeroing it at 25yd, I've had very good performance on the 100yd target line and longer shots. I plan on trying it out on longer shots, but so far, the Millett is a champ. It's easy to zero, set and adjust and maintains zero solidly. I haven't had to re-sight the scope since attaching it.
Overall, a solid performer that's easy to use with Japanese quality glass, very good eye relief and a lifetime warranty. (I know friends who have used the warranty on other Millett scopes and say that they're very professional and quick to repair any issue.) I have friends who are considering this for their Scout 308 rifles as it's clear, clean and accurate. Ever since Millett was purchased by Bushnell, I've seen a few sales on these scopes and others in the Gold line, so shop around.... but you'll likely purchase through opticsplanet.com: their support and shipping is top notch.
I suggest that you use a single mount with two rings to get the stability and likely high rings given the size of the scope. I found I get adequate clearance with the Millett Scope Mount and Pro Mag AR15 Flat Top mount (PM067A) but also would consider the Vortex 30mm Cantilever mount. If quick removal is important, there is no substitute for GG&G's AC-30 Accucam QD - pricey but worth every penny.
