Thanks. It's a blast to shoot. Cant wait for my can to get out of jail. Got to try and stop thinking about it Haha.
New setup on my PTR32. I am not sure yet if the magnifier is going to live on this or my AR yet.
My updated OM9-FS.
Some may not like the height of the MRO, but it's actually very usable and doesn't get in the way of anything. With the folding brace, it fits nicely into my EDC backpack. The sight picture is really good, and actually is quite an improvement over the previous setup.
Iron sights visible beneath the Scalarworks LEAP mount:

I almost went with that exact setup. It is indeed very useful. I got a sig romeo 1 on a crazy deal so I picked that up to put on. It's on an AR co-witness mount and the mount is just like the scaler works mount, in that its "hollow" underneath.
Works great since like you showed, you get an unobstructed sight picture, but still have full use of your iron sights. Better than a true co-witness setup in my opinion.
The only downside(sort of) is that the cheek weld is slightly higher than it would normally be. But still comfortable and quick to use.
