Optic to eye distance is different based on the shooters' need.
For magnifier users please slightly move the optic forward to give magnifier mounting space.

A raised optic height slightly more than a 1/3 co-witness height is the best for regular shooting or shooting with night vision goggles. We recommend trying out the Unity Tactical FAST mount or the Scalarworks LEAP 1.93 height mount to bring the optic up a little more.
