    I got a vortex strikefire red/green dot holosight for my AR. The rifle has the non removable carry handle so I got a tapco rail/adapter for the handle and the low mount ring for the sight as recommended by the manufacturer, but I can not get the sight adjusted to put the dot anywhere near point of aim with the irons. Way too high and to the right. I think it may be the rail adapter but not sure. Any body have any ideas?

    If your saying that you cannot see the iron/co-witness, then thats right. It's too high on the mount. You should still be able to zero it to POI though.
    If you want to use it co-witness, you will have to change out the upper receiver with a flat top, and get new irons.
    Or get one of these.

    Vortex offers the tall and short mount. Did yours specify which you received? Here's what the taller AR mount looks like:
