OK, here is my dilemma... I have a bushmaster A3 flat top. I am getting an Aimpoint 9000L for Christmas. (http://www.aimpoint.com/products/aimpoint_product_lines/aimpoint_9000l)

I want to ask for a set of mounts for the thing but I am pretty sure I will need a set of high mounts because of my front sight. I thought about getting a gas block or a flip down sight but i would also like for the scope to coexist. Anyone have any suggestions? I want to have it high enough to where it just sits on top of the front sight, but at the same time, the closer to the bore of the rifle, the better.... help me out please!!!

No need to post the same question in two areas.

1)  Get rings/mount that will allow your AP to optain a lower 1/3rd co-witness.  This will give you a better view of your target especialy in an HD/SHTF situation.
 
2)  Welcome to the OT!

Thanks for the input. Are there any particular mounts you recommend to obtain this 1/3 co-witness? I believe i will ned two since that scope is s long. AND i would like to keep it under or around 100 bucks.
