I have ran an Eotech 552 on my 7.62 for about 6 years.
I really like it.  I have it low with the old Larue flip mount with a Helmsholdt maginfier.

I would like a recommendation for a magnifier for this set up.  The budget magnifier has been on too long.

This is a heavy build intended as a multi purpose rifle, based on a DPMS LR-308 AP4.  Not as many 7.62 AR options with the budget I had for the build back then.

I am in the middle of an opposite build right now.
A light weight one based on a VTAC M&P.
It came well outfitted from S&W at a great price as they are clearing out for the VTAC IIs.
MBUS sights, Micro T-1 I got a great trade deal for NIB, etc.
No magnifier planned for this.

No, for the meat of the question I have.
I am re-vamping a Bushmaster I bought just before the AWB.
It currently has a clone RDS a buddy gave to me for free.
Obviously, it needs a real sight.

I am impressed with the cost to quality ratio on the Aimpoint Patrol.
As much as I love my Eotech, when all is said and done I am getting my Aimpoint back on.  (My first was an Aimpoint 1000 I bought back in 88.)

My question on the Patrol is,
for a standard, luggage handle, fixed iron site model like this, will the mount it comes with co-witness with my irons, and as absolute co-witness or lower 1/3.
The current set up, although a clone, does absolute co-witness.

Thank you for any information.
