For those of you that shoot scoped AR's, have you mounted the scope so that the eyepiece is right at the charging handle to provide easy access to same? If you could post a picture of your setup, it would be appreciated. Thanks.

That would actually be the eye-piece. The objective lens is the one that faces the "object" you are viewing.

ArmaLite makes a one-piece mount that will allow you to mount the scope this way. It moves the scope forward about 1-1/2". There are many companies making a extended rail-mount. White Oak Armament, GGG, are among them that I have used.

Usually I end up mounting mine *at least* that far forward. The short stock on most AR's makes it so almost any position other than standing... your nose is going to wind up damn near at the charging handle if you're snuggled into the gun good n tight. The scope needs to be several inches forward of *that*.

YMMV,

Its hard to just say where you should mount a scope since your individual eye relief has everything to do with where the scope has to eventually be mounted.
You can get a tactical charging handle extension from GG&G or similar. It will be of some help in getting better access to the charging handle once the scope is in place.

Everyone is built differently. What I have found with my customers is this: If they are 6 foot or more, a stock extension normally works quite well. It goes between the receiver and the butt-stock adding about 1" to the length-of-pull.
