    I just got my stag arms M6 in and had a few questions about it. First I mounteda old scope I had here to see if I would run into any problems until my new scopoe gets here. But I noticed that I am either going to need taller rings or a rail mount riser. Which one would be more stable? Also the rear of the scope is directly over the charge handle so will the riser allow me to push the scope further forward>> If so could you guys that have guns similar to this post up a few pics please:D Thanks Rob

    Best way I've found is get a one piece forward offset 1.5" high mount.

    There are many variations and brands of the one piece offset mounts nowdays. AR15 One-Piece Mounts

    They support the scope better (more centered on the scope), allow for proper cheek weld and eye relief, and easily changed from one gun to another. I've tried the 1/2" risers, tried super tall rings, and tried these. IMO, these are by far the best way to go.

    As you can see in the photo, If I was using a riser or rings, the front ring would be really close to the turret. This leaves alot of scope unsupported.

    rpainter,
    There are many good mounts for the AR's out there, here's one I've used from Warne Scopes.... it works pretty good... and it has a 45 degree back up optic option on it.
