Default Which riser to cowitness Bushnell TR25

Seeing alot of conflicting things on the internets but figured this is the best place for it.

I have a brand new mp15 2.0 and want the red dot to cowitness with the front as close as possible. Would a medium riser or the hirise work best? Popular optic so figured someone would know.

Not sure what you mean by this... Do you want "absolute co-witness" or "lower 1/3"? Watch this vid to understand the difference...


A medium riser will give you absolute, while the high will give lower 1/3.

Absolute co-witness would require a riser .83" tall. Lower 1/3 co-witness requires an one inch riser with the trs-25.

Yes... judging from the description "medium" and "high", I assumed he was looking at the UTG risers...
