AR15 Carry Handle Scope Mount

The carry handle Mount/adapter for the AR15 is a very effective and cheap accessory for the person who likes the accuracy and long range ability of a scope, but also likes the tried and true dependability of iron sights. I put the see through mount on my rifle because I love challenging myself and shooting with iron sites but also wanted to be able to extend the range of my rifle out to the long ranges it is capable of. While it’s nice to hit targets at long range with ease, there is something to be said about hitting a target when your front sight post is larger than the target you are aiming at. Using iron sites is a skill that is perishable and should be maintained with regular practice; it not only is fun but it’s useful to maintain your shooting basics.

With the see through weaver mount I am able to switch between the scope and the iron sites easily. The rail is a weaver style rail, and long enough to set the scope up to where you would like it in relation to your rifle and how you hold it.

Also since the scope is still securely mounted to the adapter when you replace it to the rifle you are still sighted in.

Of course it does raise it up a little higher than you would want for most butt stocks, using an adjustable cheek rest solves this problem. This is important to have in addition so that you can lower the cheek rest to be able to use the iron sites, or raise it up to use the scope.

You can see how low the scope sits to the iron site using the carry handle mount/adapter; they did a good job when making this mount to insure that they kept it as low as possible without blocking the iron sites. Another benefit of this setup is the ability to use the iron sites to help sight in the scope without using a laser boresighter because you can switch between using the scope and the iron sites.

Here is another view showing the front site post viewed through the rear aperture using the see through mount with the scope mounted. Having a tactical scope is nice but to get a decent magnification you have to shell out big bucks, this mount allows you to use a more cost effective scope on your rifle so you don’t have to break the bank to get higher magnification, you can still use the iron sites in addition or take the scope off if need be.
