Is Bushnell HOLOsight XLP Red Dot Scope Riflescope 530021 appropriate for mounting on an AR15 as long as it has a weaver/picatinny rail? Thank You.

Hi

You can use any red dot, reflex or holo on an AR15, but you may need some additional mounts.

If you plan to mount it to a flat top (picatinny rail) without the carry handle attached, you will need a riser to put the sight high enough to clear the iron sights and also to put it in a position to comfortably see when your face is on the stock. Try the B-Square, 15100, then attach the red dot.

If you plan to mount the sight on the carry handle and not use the iron sights, try the B-square Modern Military Rifle Scope Mounts for AR-15/16, AK-47/MAK-90 SKS 56 M-1A/M14 (supplies rings you won't need, but it works). If you want to mount the red dot on the carry handle and have access to the iron sights, try the EOTech holographic mounts for M4/M16/AR15 9 BC-CAM.
