    hmm, maybe, or I might sell or exchange it with ASI. They make shorter versions, I think the next shorter version is about 1.25" shorter, and there's other shorter versions.

    I might do that with the holograph, but mounting the sight that far forward has never really agreed with me.

    Some Guys do mount it that way. Depending on the sight I end up going with I may need to, but I'm tired of always have to crane my neck forward like a turtle to get the eye relief correct. If I end up going with the magnifier, the lower magnification will mean that I can have a greater eye relief distance.

    Putting a Eotech or this Monstrum on it...It's going to require a cheek riser, or I'm going to have to change stocks.

    Good to know! Thanks OH! The Monstrum prism scope and the Eotech both sit pretty high even further up on top the rail. Right now I'm leaning towards the holograph so I can keep the reflex ability.

    I had to take the iron sights off to put that rail on. So while the Monstrum offers pretty fast target acquisition, the Eotech makes it as fast or faster than iron sights. With a 3x Magnifier I think I could be really happy, but I want to take both to the range before I make that call.

    Is that designed specifically for the scope ring slots on a Mini receiver or did you revise it.
    Carl over there does good work, at least I think it's still him.

    It's specifically designed for Ranch models. It's got pins on the underside that engage into the receiver's top front and rear scope grooves. I'm happy, I'm going to send it to him to do a bit more work and then call it good. If I'm not satisfied after that last set of improvements I'll sell or trade it. It's fun to putz with but eventually I'll have to call it good or cut it loose.

    Thanks Honk I saw those. I was worried about them slipping. You make a good point. Best to get the rail and the sights on before I put money into something that I might not need.
    Mine didn't slip around. I seem to recall some grippy stuff on the inside? Actually fit very tight.

    My beef with neoprene is it can become frayed and pick up burrs, etc.

    Kinda unnerstan what your talking about.
    I had a few of those, "That's cool!".
    That evolved into, "I like that!" and suddenly devolves into "OMG! What the hell have I done?"
    So far, I haven't carried one to the point I couldn't back up to "point of origin" without any major scars or hiccups that couldn't be repaired, covered up or otherwise erased.
    I'm just the opposite. Every AR I've built (assembled?) I had to add a 3/8" riser to get the scope high enough for a comfortable "cheek weld".
    I always use flattop receivers. Adding a carry handle is a piece of cake these days.

    Good luck.
