Need help on mounting a Super Sniper 1-6x24 on a Steyr AUG 3

Looking at the various forward mounting bases used for AR's…do I need this forward base or just a straight up base?

Anyone having gone thru trial and error or simply knows what is best would appreciate your help

thanks

Not being familiar with the A3, but would like to be, I'm guessing a forward mount would be what you want.
You might try shouldering the rifle with your cheek weld, and then take the scope with your off hand and place it where you have a proper image. Then look to see where the scope is in relation to the rail to see if you need a forward mount or not.

I actually tried the forward mount and it was too much for this rifle, got the straight up, no forward American Defense mount and it is perfect.

Thanks

Good to hear. I've only used fixed 4x scopes on the A1 AUG with STANAG mounts. They were a perfect fit, but most variables are longer, so I wasn't sure how they would fit on an A3.
