Excellent choice to mount small fast reflex on short weapon
On something like a MK18, or any AR with a barrel 12” and under, it can be very useful to have an inherently fast optic like a vortex razor, trijicon RMR, or any optic normally thought of as a pistol optic, simply because the weapon itself is designed to have an advantage in tight quarters. When selecting an optic that can be as fast as the weapon can handle, often it’s the case that these optics won’t sit high enough to cowitness with backup irons, and if the weapon is short enough, that you may have to crane your neck at an odd angle to see through these low riding dots. Enter the riser. It raises the optic to a perfect height so that irons are easily cowitnessed, and perhaps most importantly, the extra height enables you to instantly acquire the dot when upping the gun from low ready, without any odd head tilts or strange angles to be able to see the dot correctly. Great product.
