I have a Rock River Arms Entry Tactical--

 

I want to give it some reach.  I think I'd like to add a Super Sniper 10x to the flat top.

 

Can you guys tell me who has the best prices on the scopes and on the mounts?  Side adjust parallax really worth it?

 

Sorry if this kind of post is in appropriate (dues to questions on pricing)

 

Thanks

SWFA, the owner of this site, is the only place to buy a new SS.

 

How much do you want to spend on rings/mounts??

If at first you don't secede...try..try again.

I'd like the scope to be mounted on a flat-top ar type.  I have the fixed front sight so- I'd have to either have a mount that would allow it to clear that (16" barrel) or I'd have to remove the front block and get a flip up site.  I'd prefer the mount to be quick release and hold/return to zero.  I'm sure this arrangement won't be cheap.

 

Can suggest the "right" set-up for this and then a lower cost alternative that would still be solid?

 

Which SS would you suggest?  Side adjust or rear adjust etc? 

 

Thanks for all of your help.

Nobody has any answers . . . or is there a better place to ask the questions?

 

Any advice appreciated!  Thanks

Might want to think about ditching the FSB, for a flip up front sight.

MUCHO easier to scope that AR.

Agreed- in a perfect world where I hadn't just bought an Aimpoint 3ML, qr mount, SuperSniper 16x and an single piece armalite mount, the flip front sight and lo-pro gas block would be great.  I'm just tight on funds.  Does anyone have an idea how the single piece armalite mount will work for me?  I dont think it will clear an ARMS 40- buis, but it should allow the scope to sit at the correct height right?
