    I use the hosum green dot love it. But if the front sight didn’t look blurry, I would have stuck with those. Gettin old has some disadvantages, but not quite ready for the alternative.

    Irons.

    Love the classic look of the platform.

    I chased the cowitness thing and didn't end up liking it. the red dot was slightly off the front post center when zero'd which drove me nuts. Plus it was very cluttered tbh. I have the MFI low mount and an Aimpoint T1. It will cowitness if I look through the irons, but I end up looking over the rear drum sight to use the dot. If I want to use irons, I just turn off the dot and look through it like it's not there.

    My other clone setup is a MRO, which obviously is dot only.

    Nice looking setup!

    I ended up using this RMR mount on all my MP5ish guns. Clean, low pro, co-witness with the front post and so fast to acquire and transition. Centering the front post in the window still works well in close quarters should the dot die. I can't imagine doing anything else on these guns now.

    I just ordered a B&T low mount gonna give cowitness a try on this platform. Stock Zenith rail is way to high. If I don’t like it I can always use the same set up I have now it should drop optic lower with a lower rail mount. Be here Friday we will see. Pricey trial and error as stated before.
