AR-15 and Eotech

I've been thinking about buying another AR-15 with a removeable carry handle. My biggest question is, if I buy this version of the AR-15 and install a EOTECH onto the rifle, will the EOTECH crosshairs clear the forward post on the front of the barrel?

I've been thinking about buying the AR-15 A3M4 Version, but if the front site is going to be an issue, i'll order the rifle with the collapsable front site.

I do like the way the AR looks with a EOTech, but I also like the way it looks without it and with the harry handle on the rifle.

you can get risers from cheaper than dirt that will raise it like a 1/2" and probably be enough for clearance. i have one cause the rear fold down sight and red dot sight i have almost touch, and make it hard to get the lense cap off.

You could always upgrade to a flip up sight on the front that folds down when not in use.

fixed front sights are fine with eotechs.. buddy has one on his colt, not a pain to shoot at all.

in fact, he's the reason im buying an eotech... iron sights are getting old. ;p
