    I second the LaRue LT-104. Unless you get the scope out over the handguard you'll never get the correct eye relief.

    I'll +1 on the LaRue LT-104, but I do want to say this:


    I have a Leupold Mark 4 on my LR-308. While waiting for my mounts to come in, I was playing with some cheap weaver rings that I had laying around. I was able to get proper eye relief with those. It may be that the slightly longer receiver of the LR-308 may have contributed. I don't know.

    I think it is more a fuction of shooting style. I have tried it, and I just don't shoot NTCH. I've found that if your shooting style isn't NTCH, a LOT more options are open to you. And a few are closed.

    For instance...

    Everyone on ARF.com recommends the SPR-E for the Millet DMS-1. I have one that gives proper eye relief from the SPR. If I went NTCH, I would need the extended one. Therefore, I think eye-relief discussions should include information about how a person shoots.


    Just my observations.

    I personally have a Millet DMS-1 on my Bushmaster AR-15, I got some extra high scope rings from millet and a $14 riser and it works excellent.

    A one piece riser, mount should give enough height to get above the front sight. Either Med or high rings on the flat top or a one piece riser mount with low rings would do it.
