Shown on a new Inland Manufacturing, Co. 30 Carbine, is the UltiMAK M6-SM forward optic mount. No gunsmithing required. Please Note: It requires the optic to be attached to the mount before the mount is attached to the Carbine. This is for the shooter who knows what he wants. It means that you intend to leave your optic installed on your Carbine. It is NOT for those strange people who feel they must be swapping one optic between two or more firearms. Install it, leave it, and you're good to go.
*Achieving even marginal co witnessing on a 30 Carbine, which has very low iron sights, was not easy. It required eliminating the Picatinny interface altogether, and furthermore it required elimination of the "adapter plate" as found in the MOS (Modular Optic System) as used on some pistols. Installed with an Aimpoint Mirco (H1, T1, H2 or T2), or a Primary Arms MicroDot (gen 1 or gen 2 having a removeable base) with the rear iron sight aperture on the low (100 yd) (adjustable rear sight) setting, you may see no front iron sight at all when looking through the center of the rear iron sight aperture. On the 200 yd setting you may just see the very top of the front sight, and on the 250 and 300 yd settings you'll have decent co witnessing. If you have the dual aperture flip sight, you may or may not see any front sight through the low aperture, but you'll get decent co witnessong with the taller aperture. In either case your iron sights would be considered your backup, or fall back, sighting system, for the unlikely event that your optic should fail.
An additional benefit of getting the optic down so low is this; your cheekweld, when using the optic, will be closer to the original cheekweld designed into the Carbine buttstock comb. Of course, when using the optic (your primary sighting system), you're looking just over the top of your iron sights.
