EOTECH question for my LE M4 .223

Postby PatriotsNation4 on Tue Aug 30, 2011 9:37 pm

I am in law enforcement and have a LE model M4 that I want to get an optic for. I am thinking I should mount my NV compatible optic on my carrying handle to give me a nice, high, easily obtained sight picture for the closer encounters you have in this profession vs. the long range stuff you might need in the military. What type of sight, if any, need I mount to give me access to my iron sights in the even the batteries go dead or the system fails? Or is the stock rear sight aperature combined with the stock front sight post visible? I am thinking not. Any tips on how best to mount the optic (on the carrying handle, low with the handle removed, and with what kinds of accessories) would be GREATLY appreciated for this newbie.

If you have a removable carry handle you can use this EOTech EXPS3. I recommend the EXPS3-0. This model will have the reticle with the 65 MOA ring and single 1 MOA dot and is night vision compatible. You can then use this Samson flip up rear sight as a backup. The EXPS3 will give you a lower 1/3 co-witness. This means when you use the iron sights they will appear in the lower 1/3 portion of the window.
