L85 - does this look funky to you?

This thread is over three months old. Please be sure that your post is appropriate as it will revive this otherwise old (and probably forgotten) thread.

Well I can't afford a Susat or decent Acog at the min but wanted something to give me a bit more of an ability to scope out the field so I picked this up at a decent price (thanks Nutster).

To my eye it looks ok, obviously I'm going to remove the front iron sight. Just to clarify the scope is also OD/OG its pretty close to the colour of the green on the gun anyway.

 

It will also be fairly temporary unless I really get on with it.

 

Anyway, opinions please, is it sacrilege or can I get away with it?

I used to have an elcan on my L85, that, like this, looked so wrong that it was right (like a pug).

 

At least it's not an eotech.

Cheers, just wanted to make sure I wasn't looking at it through some kind of cordite tinted glasses. Its a bit like Finius said it looks so wrong its almost ok. I'll run with it and see how things go.

I think it's ok. Maybe it'd look better with a couple or three inches more barrel...
