    Default Mp5 irons only or red dot?

    So I took out my Z5RS 1st time with red dot and first time running 147gr Speer lawman TMJ Subsonic Shot great ran about 400 rounds no FTF or FTE ran fantastic suppressed. Back to the red dot cheek weld was nonexistent more like a jaw bone weld since the mount was 1/3. And I hate cowitness no go for me, one or the other. I just removed the rail and red dot. Like it simple and clean and lighter. I really prefer the irons only.

    Had the suppressor pistol adapter locked on to the CZ. That suppressor prefers the CZ it seems SP01 ran so quite.
    Had to use a strap wrench to break free to put on the 3 lug adapter Back on. Cleaned with Simple green seemed to work well.

    I’m just rocking the irons they are amazing!!! What you guys like to run red dots or irons? Irons for me.

    Is there a good red dot low enough to do both and cowitness?

    The irons are too low of a sight picture for me, feels like I have to bury my face into the brace. They would probably be just fine if I used ear plugs instead of ear muffs, but with the muffs- I struggle with getting a good sight picture with the irons along with keeping a good seal on my muffs. For me, full cowitness would be kind of against the point so I am rocking a holosun 510c which is perfect for me, does not do any kind of cowitness but it has a QD mount so I could pop it off fairly quickly if I needed the irons.

    Battle Steel makes an Aimpoint Micro form factor absolute co witness mount.

    Shield sells an absolute co witness mount for their RMS/SMS mini sight.

    With middle age I don't see as well as I used to in low light, but have not quite given up to try one of those options.
