Co-witnessing is when you have the rifle set up with iron and optical sights so that when aiming you are actually using both at the same time and the optical sight's crosshairs or dot line up with the iron sights. The idea is to use the optical sight, but if it gets knocked out of adjustment or the battery dies you just use the iron sights and ignore the optical.

So, on a more serious note, I've heard of what I thought was co-witnessing being talked about on a AR. The thing was; the conversation was about two optical sights mounted on different rails. So I was confused. Thanks codger.

Yup trial and error. Let us know what you find out.

Damn helpful bunch ain't we?


A friend of mine brought over a dbl 12 guage. Asked if I wanted to fire both barrels at once. Told me some folks thought it wasn't much different so after a quick thought I did.
I mentioned to him that it had some punch. Then he told me that he didn't know as he had not fired both at once before. He did after seeing the then guns stock didn't quite make it all the way through my shoulder.
" damn helpful " friend wasn't he? lol.
PS. I didn't use the sight and still managed to blow the hell out of the target. Good luck with your carbine!

I always heard that firing both barrels was a great way to break the solder between the barrels. Unless it was an over/under. Something about the slight expansion every barrel experiences when fired. :dunno:
