    I have run the trijicon on the low mount in front of the carry handle. It works great.

    We are mixing two generations of state-of-the-art technology that now clash.

    Stoner's carry handle on 1960s and 1970s M16 was a influential revolution.
    With the basic iron sights it is still a fantastic and functional piece of equipment.

    Modern 21st century optics are a huge leap forward in target acquisition and engagement.
    An Aimpoint or an ACOG or an EoTech is a marvelous optical device.

    To the germane point of this thread.
    Don't combine them.

    Carry handle with iron sights or modern optic on a flat-top.

    Final answer:
    You choose.
    Either/or.
    Not both.

    For all the pleasure of the modern optical devices I own....my vintage Colt SP1 with it's carry handle is just a primal joy.
    My bug-out SHTF weapon in my safe at my "other place" is a Colt M4 14.5" with a vintage carry handle. Batteries not included (nor needed!).

    It works though, only issue I ever ran into was slight washout under mercury vapor lights at night, but you still have your front sight post.
