ELCAN Specter OS 4x Optical Sight SFOV4A1

I`m planning on mounting this on a LWRC M6A2, I`d like to be sure the LWRC skirmish rear BUIS will clear the ELCAN`s body when folded.

Does anyone know the height from the top on a picatinny rail to the bottom of the scope body at the eye piece end?

I know an ELCAN DR will clear but I don`t know if the scope body clearance will be the same.

I`m going to have to order the optic and don`t want to get stuck with something that won`t fit like I`d like.

Will the same bikini covers that fit the ELCAN DR also fit this optic?


We had an OS model on an LWRC a while back. I don't remember it having any issues clearing the sight when its folded. Best I can remember the OS has the same mount as the 1-4x

Do you have to mount it over the BUIS or can you go in front of it?

I don't know how to link you to another thread, but on the last page of this thread:

M6IC-SPR in OD w/ FDE Furniture - BEAUTIFUL

is a picture of my rifle with the Elcan 1-4X mounted over the skirmish site. The heights on the scopes are the same, so you should be GTG.

How mine mounts. The 1-4x version. It needs to be this close to my eye.
