Hey guy,

I just got a new AR-10 and I'm looking to do a scope red dot combo. I was thinking about getting the SWFA Super Sniper 10x or Millet TRS-1 with a Burris P.E.P.R mount and then putting a Burris Fastfire2 on that. The only thing I am worried about is that the red dot will not clear the turret on a tactical scope. Anybody have any experience with this? If it won't work any ideas?

Thanks

you will want to get some kind of side mount for the red dot.  The turrets on the 10x are pretty tall.

Better yet, just get the SS 3-9x and it will give you a lower mag so you don't necessarily need a red dot.

Thanks supertool, I'm actually thinking ss in 10x or 6x i would rather have a fixed power scope. Thats why I want the red dot sight. Does anybody know of good side mount all I can find are the ncstar 45degree that attach to the scope. that would work but is there anything else?

 10x in Badger Ordnance Ultra High
6x Super Sniper in La Rue mount   (3-9 is even better)
If you still feel the need for a red dot you can mount them 45degrees to the right rather than laying them in line with the tactical knobs. Midwest Industries and a couple other manufacturers make an adapter for picatinny rail.   The following is a 90 degree adapter what you want is a 45 degree adapter but you will get the idea.

Thanks guys,
 
I was trying to keep this under $600 and get a versitle set up going, for long range and fast acquisition short range, but I'm not sure thats going to happen. I will look harder at the ss 3-9x. Or Ill just save up and get an 4x ACOG which I am very comfortable with.
 
My question is... with the 3-9x do you have to have it on 9x to accuratly use the mil dots?

+1 on the SS1-4

It is a red dot (almost) and a long range scope.
