    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
