A cheap method to raise them would be use a riser on your rail. That would get them in line with your irons to co witness.  not the best but usable.

Thanks, but I think I would rather just get a decent mount. Something similar to the Bobro or Larue but less than $80... worst comes to worst I will wait awhile longer and spring some extra $$ for one of the previous mentioned.

10/4
 
I do think Vortex sells individual rings instead of a set in the 30mm size that would work with the aimpoint. 
Some even claim the cowitness

If you're willing to spend the money these three makers will get you want you want:

1. LaRue. They are arguably the best mounts out there and the CS is as good as any company  i've ever used. They sent me so much extra stuff with past orders and answered questions promptly. Top notch.

American Defense mounts are right there with Larue as well. Warne makes great single rings.

I'm curious as to why you think red dot sights will go away. Can you explain why you think that? Do you think that reticled scopes will take back their "rightful place" or do you think another technology will fill in?  Personally, I find reticled scopes much more precise for their intended uses but red dots much easier to use for qucik acuisition in CQ situations where very precise placment is not needed or even possible owing to time constraints.

Why does SWFA have to have such a great selection... Stumbled upon the Vortex StrikeFire and the SPARC and am curious how these compare to the CompC3 or a low end Eotech. Are these even worth considering or are they just junk that isnt worth the $$ to put on my plinker?

I think that low range variables are now getting good enough at 1x to largely replace traditional full-size red dot sights, while offering more versatility.  I think that is a better solution that a red dot with magnifier.

Miniature red-dots, I think, are more viable long term as secondary sights and as dedicated close range sights.  Hence, Aimpoint Micros and similar sights have better long-term potential, IMO.

Concur with the Dark Lord.
Aimpoint Micros like the T-1 have won me over. ...BIG! 
Doubt I'll ever go back to the Comps now that I have a Micro. EO's are off my grid totally.
 
Good shooting!

Still an optics newbie, but is the micro the same tech were the dot doesnt have to be centered?  And if you wanna get rid of any Comps, let me know.

As ruff and tuff as the Comps, same dot tech, but smaller.

Nice Micro CT.  I love the Aimpoints and love my Comp.  Would be interesting to do a side by side with a Micro to see which I like better.

ILya, I can tell you that there is a large group within the military that agrees with you.  And they want it NOW...
There are some issues with placement which must be overcome, but your comments are right on...
Opinion,untempered by fact,is ignorance.

There are some who do not fear death... for they are more afraid of not really living
