Which EOTech Sight will work with a Rock River Arms LAR-15 Elite CAR UTE2 Carbine (http://www.rockriverarms.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=category.display&category_id=221)? I want to keep the iron sights in the lower 1/3 or 1/4 of the EOTech during normal use so the iron sights are right there, ready to be used. Will the EOTech 512.A65 work with the UTE2 reciver, or will I need to raise it up any?

All EOs are the same height, if you use the Dominator rail from RRA you can get the EO dot just above the front sight post.
Or you may be able to use a cantilever scope mount under the EO and get it up a little higher.

After searching around a little more I found that I'll either need to use a 7mm adaptor to raise the EOTech 512.A65 7mm or go with a EOTech model that has a 7mm raise built in.

The EOTech 517.A65 sight seems to be the same sight as the 512.A65, except it has the control buttons on the left side of the sight instead of the rear and it has a raised 7mm base. Looks like that one will work. Guess I should have looked at EOTech's web site a little better lol.

The rifle/carbine I'm going to buy or build isn't a flat top so the RRA Dominator Mount won't work. I'm going with the UTE2 Upper Receiver which has a A2 sight permanently affixed to the rear of it with a flat top rail in front of that, which is where the EOTech gets mounted.
