I have a SL8-1 with 3x scope and carry handle. I also have the factory rail with an EO tech mounted on it. The rifle is sighted in perfectly as it is right now, but I would like to use the 552 also. The question is, if I take off the carry handle will it loose it zero?

Chances are, yes.

I've found that getting bumped around in the back of the jeep on the way to a shoot site a few hours away (and rough terrain the last 10 miles) is enough to throw off the 200m Zero by as much as several (4-5) inches. For this reason, I taped a 3mm hex wrench to the buttstock for in-field adjustments to the sights.

While it's unfortunate that you have to go through this whenever you switch sighting arrangements, it's probably acceptable for a military use sight where they know they'll be out on a range to sight in frequently.

For you and me, it just means more range trips to re-zero the sights whenever you switch them out. HTH,
