    I attempted to forward mount a BSA dot RMDS on both a M-l Garand and
    a Carbine. In order to pick up the dot, my head has to be raised to where
    my chin is level with the stock comb top. Tried the following attempting
    to use the scout type forward mount. Used a 3/4" riser, and both a high
    and low set of rings with negative results. Finally I mounted a BSA 2 to 7
    Pistol scope that works great. Not a clue as the use of the dot without
    a serious stock comb raise, or a mount over the action that I don't want to
    do as it would mean alteration to the rifles. The other downside is I know
    nothing of this type of dot sight, and there is no information that came with
    it. Get along with BSA and Simmons scopes just fine without problems and
    own several:)

    I love it when cheap stuff works. All those shot groups were excellent and lethal.
    I have no ambition to become an exhibition shooter or sniper; cheap is good enough for me.

    I have one of those on my Gamo Viper air shotgun. That is really interesting, thanks for the post.
