View Full Version : CA G36C Red Dot/sight mounts

06-17-2006, 04:16 AM
I'm trying to find a sight mount to attach a Red Dot style auxilary aiming device that will have enuff clearance underneath for me to use the standard iron sights on the Picattinny rail. I can't seem to find anything on the web for my CA G36C. The closest thing to what i mean is a claw sight mount for MP5. I would appreciate any advice or links.

There are a number of cowitness mount options on WGC:

Uhh, yeah there are, but none of them will work. The iron sights on the G36c are very low. They are actually set into the rail. That makes them too low for almost anything to work. I would say skip it and get an open type red dot. The base of the sight covers up the iron sight, but you don't have to squish your face down onto the stock where goggles might make it hard to see through the stock sights. You could also get an Aimpoint copy but with an L-mount or cantilever to raise the sight above the irons.

Thanks guys, u gave me some idea of keywords i can look for. i was able to find some mounts, but i was trying to stick with some kind of elevated mini rail set up. If all else fails, i will just have an open sight as u suggested, Marimba. this is some of the stuff i found:
A Hurricane QD High Mount

G&P 30mm Red Dot Sight Stright Mount (not sure if it allows a good sight of fore sight)

Hurrican E Scope Mount For M4/SR16/RIS (not sure if this works with the top rail tho)

3rd Gen Deluxe See-Thru Riser Mount with Picatinny and STANAG Dimensions (not sure if it allows a good sight of fore sight)

Tactical High Mount for ICS Airsoft Guns
all these are questionable fits, however.

I also now found some more stuff:
NCStar M16 M4 Trimount Flat Top Mount

i will try to add some more and see what u guys think whether they are feasable solutions to blocking the iron sight altogether.

Ok, I currently have the Hurricane QD high mount...It is tall enough to clear the sights, but the base occludes the iron sights. I can show it to you if you wish. In the past I had one of the Hurricane tall scope mounts for the M16, you can see over the iron sights, but, it's huge and the base will also block the iron sights. The other two will allow you to see through the base, but you will not be able to see the entire front sight ring. They will all attach to the G36c top rail.

Thank you kind sir. I will wait a while before i make my choice and after i get chance to look at your setup if you dont mind.
*sigh* Its hard to wait though; just getting into the sport, I'm like a kid in candy store with all this stuff :) I want this no I want that..
