Proper Eye Position Ready AR-15 Optics Mount
When it comes to mounting an optic on your AR-15, there are a few choices. Standard rings usually aren’t high enough, and they don’t provide the offset necessary to mount an optic far enough forward to get “nose on the charging handle” style position. The Burris P.E.P.R. (say it as “Burris pepper”) solves that problem. Coming in 1″, 30mm, and 34mm models, it offers great flexibility on types of scopes that it can mount. The 1″ and 30mm versions come in standard or with Quick Detach. Each scope mount also offers both smooth ring tops as well as with Picatinny rail tops. I opted to use the smooth top rings, because I have more than enough rail space on my rifle.
Although the Burris P.E.P.R. is made in China, I didn’t feel like I was getting a sub-par product. Edges were smooth and the hardware was of excellent quality. The package sure was crap-tastic, but the product itself was well matched to my optic and the rest of my rifle.
