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.
