Obligatory You need the .83" UTG mount to cowitness the TRS-25 on an AR

The cheaper version:

The lighter/nicer version:

u/JRogers251 · 11 pointsr/ar15

Built this rifle about a year ago. I finally got around to posting on here. This build was as budget as I could get without going too bare bones.


u/Publix_Deli · 10 pointsr/gundeals
u/slasher0739 · 9 pointsr/gundeals

I have the same red dot and the .83" riser from utg makes it cowitness perfectly with my MBUS.


u/RIAuction · 9 pointsr/gundeals

Correct. Bought one last time this deal came around.

$10 on Amazon got me one with an easy absolute cowitness. I see now that it is a whole $13. Haven't taken it out to the range just yet.

u/nubbinator · 7 pointsr/gundeals

If you're an absolute cheap bastard, Amazon Warehouse also has them used like new with original packaging for $39.51. Grab this riser for full cowitness or the 1" for 1/3 cowitness.

u/ktmrider119z · 7 pointsr/airsoft


But if you want one that just works, the red only Fieldsport on Amazon is great at $20.

Next step up but still budget would be a Bushnell TRS-25. Less glass tint, and all around better quality for $50.

Youll want this riser with either one.

If you eventually want a quality real steel Optic, look for the Vortex Strikefire, Vortex Crossfire red dot, Vortex SPARC AR, or the Sig Romeo 5. All can be had for about 120 if you shop around. Vortex optics have fantastic warranties.

If you want some magnification, i eecommend the monstrum 3x prism sight. Let it be known though, that the sight adjustments work in reverse.

u/mrmax1984 · 7 pointsr/gundeals

This riser gives perfect cowitness.

u/wizang · 6 pointsr/ar15

People might shit on UTG but in this case its probably as good or better than your red dot so who cares, you're not going to be able to use it that low.

u/JamesDReddit · 5 pointsr/ar15

I went with the cheap utg. Zero problems. Perfect cowitness. What's not to like?

u/MarcusDohrelius · 4 pointsr/gundeals

get a riser to bring it to a height of a decent cheekweld. something like this

u/Econolife-350 · 4 pointsr/gundeals

You might not like my answer but the cheap UTG .83" on Amazon for like $8 has done everything I could ask of it. If name brands don't bother you too much it's worth a shot.

Edit: I lied, it was $7. For that much what's the harm in trying.

u/impid · 3 pointsr/airsoft

The fieldsport optics are fine for airsoft guns. You might need a scope riser, such as this

Don't know what you mean by you think the front sight will protect the sight.

Edit, oh you mean from bbs. Sure theres a chance but it's a 15 dollar sight.

u/Sweet-And-Sauer · 3 pointsr/ar15

Since you bought Bushnells I'm guessing you're buying on a budget, but this is a pretty good budget riser for a lower 1/3 co-witness.

Or if you want an absolute co-witness...

u/LiberalPewPew · 3 pointsr/SocialistRA

Agreed, I have this mount, and it co-witnesses the TRS with the iron sights wonderfully. It hasn't moved since I installed it either.

u/cawpin · 3 pointsr/gundeals

Great little red dot, stands up to .458 Socom recoil. I have them on a bunch of stuff.

Edit: UTG medium riser

u/edventure_2025 · 3 pointsr/gundeals

I have it on this. It makes it line up fairly well with the irons when I flip them up.

u/justagook · 3 pointsr/gundeals

You can also get a utg med riser off amazon for around $8. Those will cowitness with these on AR

link for lazy

u/lunchbox1911 · 3 pointsr/ar15

UTG Medium riser from Amazon did the trick for mine fyi. Fit good, solid as well.

u/ku1185 · 2 pointsr/NJGuns

This is the riser I used:

I also had the "high" one that was 1" tall, but that was just a tad bit too tall for me.

u/NgArclite · 2 pointsr/airsoft

wait for the eotech and see then. don't go wasting money with a prebuy. that being said this is a good one. might not be long enough for the eotech though. otherwise almost any brand riser works. utg is a good one though

u/flighthaltWHAT · 2 pointsr/ar15

I run this same red dot on my AR, it was a .83 inch riser on Amazon and makes an absolute cowitness with my front sight post and MBUS rear sight. Heres the link to it:

u/mjmedstarved · 2 pointsr/Gunsforsale

Yeah.. I paid $57.80 at PA for mine, and 9.99 for my UTG mount:

u/MisterNoisy · 2 pointsr/ar15

If you want a good budget fixed magnification optic, I really like Primary Arms stuff - their prism scopes run around $250-300 and are tough as nails with clever BDC/ranging reticles and pretty good glass.

For budget red dots I like PA, Holosun and Vortex.

If you're just looking for a decent cheap RDS that'll get you shooting and hold zero, the Bushnell TRS-25 can be had for $50 or so and will serve just fine. Add a UTG riser (absolute cowitness / lower 1/3 cowitness) for under $10 and you're in business.

u/hondalex · 2 pointsr/ar15

I've heard from Amazon that this is the riser to get for it from them:

[UTG Medium Profile Riser Mount with 3 slots] (

u/Triactin · 2 pointsr/ar15

I used this one UTG Med-pro Compact Riser Mount, 0.83" High, 3 Slots All I did to adjust it was line it up with my backup iron sights and flip them back down when I was done.

u/Icamehereforupvotes · 2 pointsr/GunAccessoriesForSale
u/shmecklesss · 2 pointsr/guns

Bushnell TRS-25 is a quality budget red dot that would perform similarly to the Vortex.

Edit: you would probably want a riser to go along with it, though that's somewhat personal preference. Amazon has the TRS + riser for $60.

u/Bru7171 · 2 pointsr/ar15

Those are Bushnell TRS-25s on a UTG medium riser. But it looks like this one on Amazon already comes with a medium riser.

u/zxj4k3xz · 2 pointsr/airsoft

I see 1 major issue right off the bat: You're getting a nimh charger and a lipo battery. That is a huge no no. Trying to charge a lipo with a nimh charger will cause a fire.

From your last post, you got a G&G CM16 Carbine? I believe a 9.6v butterfly nimh will fit fine.

I'd also recommend Mechanix Gloves cause they're cheap and awesome, Hatch X-tak knee pads cause they're just great knee pads, Pyramex I-force and One Tigris mask because good luck aiming down sights with a full face mask, and either a field sport red dot with a riser or a UTG Red dot. Last but not least, I'd recommend a Condor Rapid Assault chest rig instead of the MCR1 because it has mag pouches built in.

u/gooknezz · 2 pointsr/guns

To expand on what /u/Lost_Thought said, the link you included has the standard mount that will result with a very close mount, like this or this.

If you want it mounted to better co-witness with your iron sights, you will need a rise mount that will end up looking like this.

The medium riser will co-witness with your irons. The high riser will give you a lower 1/3 co-witness.

These are the only two items (sight and one riser) you would likely need to purchase.

u/fromplsnerf · 2 pointsr/guns

It’s .83”

This is the riser

UTG Med-pro Compact Riser Mount, 0.83" High, 3 Slots

u/idiggplants · 2 pointsr/ar15

thats exactly what i did, and im happy with it. well, i used this mount instead...

i preferred the knob on mine a bit more. allows for easy no tool attachment.

u/tausciam · 1 pointr/ar15

I got this for cowitness on a Fieldsport red dot. So yes...probably 3/4

u/a__hol · 1 pointr/airsoft

I recommend getting the mid level riser so you can cowitness with iron sights. Believe it should be 0.83”. This one would work.

u/RallyMech · 1 pointr/guns

Gotcha. Keep in mind, you will need a spacer for the basic TRS-25 (unless you get the 'ar optics' model). I use this one for absolute co-witness height and have this for lower 1/3 co-witness height. The image below describes the difference between absolute and lower 1/3rd types of co-witnessing in case you didn't know. If you aren't going to ever use iron sights or you are going to get flip up irons, go absolute. If you are going to get fixed irons eventually, go lower 1/3rd.


u/throwawaySpikesHelp · 1 pointr/ar15
u/Two-Thumbs · 1 pointr/1022

Agreed. I've got a half dozen TRS-25 and they are excellent. You can sometimes pick them up for $50. On an AR, you'll want the high rise mount, but that's a 1/3rd cowitness and a better alternative is to get one from UTG for $10 and use that with the regular TRS-25:

For the 10/22, you don't need the elevated mount. The TRS-25 is perfect on the 10/22.

u/bnolsen · 1 pointr/gundeals

The .83" riser will get cowitness with many BUS. This is the one you want:
I have this riser with this dot (total steal for 16usd after rebate) and I think these sights (sold under TONS of different names):

u/64ink · 1 pointr/gundeals

I have only had time to take mine out shooting once and it held up just fine. The one I linked to on amazon has 4.5 star average over 752 reviews so it looks like hardly anyone else is having trouble with it either.

For absolute cowitness you would want the medium height here--

For 1/3 cowitness you would want the one I linked earlier--

u/abaine93 · 1 pointr/guns


It's actually a cheap airsoft sight:
With a utg medium profile riser:

Less than 100 dollars all together and the riser puts it at a very comfortable height for an AR style rifle. I normally wouldn't have bothered with anything made for airsoft on my real guns but it has taken a serious amount of abuse and still works great. I figured it would handle the .22 recoil just fine and it did.

u/Desay · 1 pointr/gundeals

Looks like it isn't. It's $70. I'll keep my eyes open for deals though it looks like they come up every month or so. One more question, someone in that thread recommended this riser, do I need one to be able to use it if I already have a top rail?

u/brent1987 · 1 pointr/ar15

Make sure to order a riser for the Bushnell sight so that it cowitnesses with your front sight. Most people that order from amazon recommend this one, but any riser that is approximately that height (0.83 inches) should work.

u/Rgnxsupreme · 1 pointr/airsoft
u/starlordturdblossom · 1 pointr/Gunsforsale

Thanks for reminding me about the riser. It didn't come with one, but I have one of these that I bought to go with it: UTG Med-pro Compact Riser Mount, 0.83" High, 3 Slots

I'll throw it in. PM me.

u/77ticktock · 1 pointr/gundeals

Try this for absolute cowitness... one reviewer indicated cowitness with magpul BUIS

Don't quote me but I believe the 1" high riser would give you a lower third cowitness

u/greekplaya990 · 1 pointr/68SPC

You might not want that gas block in the front that could block the view of a scope you want to put on it. That said You can get one of the [bushnell red dots on amazon sale] ( and This riser and then you can have a red dot co witness for hunting which would be sweet.

u/wallawalla22 · 1 pointr/gundeals

You and I both know that this isn't the only thing stopping me from doing this.

But- I look into it. Looking at risers I found these two.

Best bet to wait for the sight to come in and measure? or is there a standard size for these?

u/someomega · 1 pointr/ar15

Yep. You can get them without the riser for $40 when they are on sale. You can then get a UTG Med-pro Compact Riser Mount (0.83" High) for $10 bucks and have a co-witnessed sight.
