GG&G scout rail with FASTFIRE 3

Just installed the GG&G scout rail with Burris Fastfire 3 and AMS machine, low and strong protective mount. Can see the irons clearly in the large channel in the GG&G mount under the red dot. Works great, Love it ,take a look.

I was wondering if you tried to mount your optic directly on the Scout rail, and if so did it co-witness with the irons?

No it would not co witness, factory rail is to high, and it has no big channel specificallly made for the irons. So you loose the irons as backup. This mount is about the same height as the factory rail and designed to look under the red dot with the irons. Have a good chin weld with the optic, may try a short leather riser on the stock. really don't need one. The rail on this mount is much longer than the factory one and allows moving the small optic further back to the rear , makes the sight picture much bigger. I believe the optic will be cooler and not heat as quickly as the factory mount.
