Friends, I've been shooting and hunting for some time. For the life of me I don't understand the "see through" scope mounts. Yes, yes, yes, I understand the physics and reasons but I question the logic and want your thoughts. Why would you mount a scope that high off the butt that your natural cheek weld is altered? I've never found myself in a situation where if I couldn't safely use the scope I could have safely used the iron sights. Moreover....I can't imagine the unnatural position of my head and cheek on the rifle?

Sooo...what am I missing here.

Regards all,
Nothing! I am in total agreement here. Some people like using the see-thru mounts to use their irons. This will cause them to alter their "natural" cheek to stock weld when using the higher positioned scope. My son likes his Marlins set-up with the see-thrus--I have tried to convince him otherwise--but no dice so far. :vollkommenauf:
