Default Cowitness mounts and sights

So I have a vortex sparc, decent optic for the $. The included mount is centered with your irons and includes risers or a lower mount that allow you to have upper or lower 1/3rd height.

The mounts included are fixed and require a tool to put on and take off.
I wanted a QD mount so I first bought a American Defense T1-CAS-V.
The sparc sat low so I had to use the riser from vortex sparc, but none of the screws were long enough. I sent the casv mount back because the optic was sitting at the upper 1/3rd and not centered like I wanted. I wanted the red dot to be centered and also right where the irons are.

So I bought a American Defense QD AD-T1-10 mount.
Now this mount sits about 1/8th inch higher than center.

I just ended up using the included mount from vortex for the centered cowitness view.
hopefully this can save you guy some money and headache when buying a mount for your optics.



here are some links explaining different cowitness

Here is a video we did a while back. Cowitnessing can be very tricky.

Hope this helps

Nice post I' am sure it will help someone. I also like the 100% co-witness.

1/2" riser and my vortex razor red dot is an easy cheesy absolute cowitness.
