    If the EOTech is placed on top of the carry handle you''l have to remove it in order to use the rear and front sights.
    I don't think so it's easier to zeroing the red dot. It is just the same, the procedure is the same for any position of the red dot.
    The bad of putting the red dot above the hand guard is the distribution of the weight, especially with Eotech which is heavy.

    If you are using the correct mount for the carry handle you are not obliged to remove the aiming devise to use the rear and front sights. There is a narrow channel in the mount from which you can aim with iron sights. It is more difficult as the channel is very narrow and it is like you are aiming through a very small hole.

    As far as I can tell, with the above setup (forward carry handle mount) you can use the iron sights to zero the aiming device, since iron sights are already zeroed.

    As for the carry handle mount, you're correct, you have limited field of view when using iron sights.

    Yes you can use the sights to zero the EOtech, I was just wondering why that was the only setup Hellenic SF used with EOtech (I believe I might have seen Police SF using EOtech on the carrying handle but I could be wrong).

    Hellenic Navy's DYK members do use the carry handle mount too



    Same goes for the HAF's 31 CSAR Unit. Observe how much higher the Aimpoint is (2nd operator).

    Hellenic Army National Guard modified H&K G3A4 firing a few shoots in a small target 20X30cm at around 80 meters away. Watch the powerful 7.62X51mm ammunition crashing solid limestone rocks in front of the target stand.
