7.  Question:  Where can I get an optic or scope?           

Answer: Check our Optics Page!     

8.  Question:  What mounting rings should I get or need?           

Answer:  You don’t need any if you mount one of the smaller optics, as they clamp on. With scopes, you’ll need medium height rings.     

9.  Question:  Can I use my regular rifle scope?           

Answer:  NO. It doesn’t have enough eye relief and pistol scopes have too much.  You need and “IER” or “Scout” scope.    

10. Question:  Can I still use my existing tang sight?          

Answer:  Yes, but the rail comes with an adjustable rear sight in place and increases the factory sight radius. The rail sight can become a middle sight if you wish to still use your tang sight as they both line up with the front sight.
