If the 1-4 is mounted behind a standard A2 AR front sight - and the 1-4 is set at 1x - does the sight "see" around it like a normal scope - or are you staring at the back of the front sight tower like an eotech / aimpoint?

Even worse, the front sight post appears larger than life due to the slight magnification at such a close range.  The sight post won't disappear until 3x or so.
 
Here's my 1-4x NF with my ARMS #41B folding FSB in the up position.
 
1x
 
 
2x

EXACTLY!

That's why I have a 1-4x Super Sniper on back order.  And I'm waiting patiently mind you . . .

Freedom is something you take.
Respect is something you earn.
Equality is something you whine about not being given.
