    This is probably one of the stranger questions on here, but I'm just wondering if anyone has tried and/or is it possible to fit a scope of some sort to a 45-degree rail mount on an AR15 (so iron sights would be the main sights and the scope would be on the side as an auxiliary)?

    This is just a question as I'm currently in the planning/brainstorming phase.

    Thanks!

    can it be done? sure...

    is it functional? no... you won't have a good cheekweld and won't be able to use a scope unless it's a red dot nonmagnified...

    the other way works, move the iron sights off to the 45degree cant

    Put the scope on top where it belongs, and place the irons and/or red dot sight on the 45 angle.

    Yeah, we've all got to feed our inner-white suburban 14-yr old and be GANGSTA. Nah man, the scope will still be upright, I'll just tilt the whole rifle over 45 degrees, GANGSTA remember?
    lol

    As a former slave of Southern Kali raised in the hood (woop woop) I can tell you that gangsta ain't need no scope or reddot to bust a cap. I was just thinking about this, the problem I have and the reasoning is that it might be harder for some people because they either wear glasses or their relief is not correct to their shooting stance. I was pondering this because I wear glasses. If the scope itself was mounted at 45 degrees and the rotation of the scope was parallel to the rife , it might work if its mounted on the left. If the idea is to mount it on the right well then it might just be gangsta.

    This ^^^
    If it was a good thing, folks would do it.
    Folks don't do it.

    And then just handling and then stowing it with a scope hangin' out the side.
    No thanks.
