Southpaw Posted January 2, 2017 Share Posted January 2, 2017 (edited) Ok, stupid question time. Bear with me as I've never used a scope before; all my other rifles have red dots and/or iron sights. So I recently got a Strike Eagle and today got around to mounting it. I'm trying to figure out proper eye relief. I've got the SPR mount all the way at the front of the receiver and the scope as far forward as it'll go on the mount (picture below) and it still seems like I want it even further forward for proper eye relief. I normally shoot with the stock partially collapsed, like in the picture below, with my nose to the charging handle, but even with the mount and scope all the way forward it seems like there's no way I can shoot like this. I have to fully extend the stock forcing my head further away from the receiver to get decent eye relief. Is this normal? Even with the stock fully extended and everything as far forward as it'll go I'm still not sure if I have this thing set up properly. I haven't tightened anything down yet in case I'm doing something wrong (I don't think I mounted it backwards ). I guess I'm wondering if there's any tips for figuring out the right setup for best eye relief? I tried seeing what eye relief looks like in different positions - standing at 1x, prone at 6x, etc. Although at 6x it doesn't really work well indoors at close range.
