Does someone have pics of their buis and optic?

I was just wondering where did you put your buis in relation with an optic and vice versa, I happen to have the aimpoint pro and rear is a magpul.

Put the BUIS as far to the rear as you can. Put the Aimpoint as far forward on the upper as you can. Don't mount it on your rail if you have one and don't bridge the gap, just as far forward as it will go on the upper itself.

If you mean what co-witness I prefer lower third.

Bingo. I will say I prefer running an Aimpoint Micro farther to the rear, but that is only due to the rather small tube on the Micro.

Look through the stickied AR15 picture thread at the top of the page.

Why far forward? What does this gain you?

Cuts down on how much peripheral vision is blocked by the body of the optic. Since there is no eye relief, being farther forward isn't an issue. With a larger window or tube on the optic (See Aimpoint M2/3/4/PRO series, EO Techs), you still have plenty of visible window to find your dot in, but not as much sight gobbled up by the rest of it.

Also leaves room behind the optic for a magnifier or NOD.

What difference would a few inches closer or father away would make with an optic like the PRO? If it is anything like the M2, depending on what mount you have, the amount of view blocked by the tube isn't going to matter if you position it all the way forward or all the way aft.

Black Rifle Forum

I always ran my T1 all the way forward. I just haven't had any reason to run it as far aft as possible. How much of your view is obstructed by the "tube" to make you want to reduce it? I don't run NTCH if that matters.

It's not a drastic difference but every little bit helps. I look it at more of a why not? With a red dot having it closer doesn't help anything and having it a bit farther out does help. I'd like to try a cantilever mount for even more distance but I like the QD mount I have and I'm not forking out that kind of money for that small of a difference.

I mount dot optics as far fwd as possible on the receiver. Do not
install them on a rail, or splitting the rail & receiver.

Thanks for the pictures and I now have a better idea of what it will and should look like.
