Default 5X Gen II

I am looking at purchasing this optic....
Primary Arms Gen II 5x Compact Prism Scope, Illum ACSS .223/5.56 / 5.45x39 / .308 Reticle.
Can't find details on specs. Does it co-witness? would like a 1/3 co-witness as my M&P AR15 has fixed front post sight and fold down rear. Or will this not work with front A2 style post.

You canít really cowitness on a magnified optic. I have this exact same scope on a rifle and have 45 degree irons with it. I have the same model scope but the 2.5x version on a BCM, and it canít co witness as the front sight is kind of wonky, if that makes sense

yeah cowitness on a magnified optic doesnt work your front sight will always be very blurry if you can make it out at all.

As an add on, I can still shoot the rifle accurately with the front sight up, just can use irons with optic in way. I picked up a used acog quick detach mount for that rifle.
