Default AR 15 scope mount

I want to mount a Konus red dot on a 450 Bushmaster upper. The Konus has an intragal Picatinny base. Looking for a Pic x Pic mounting platform. Any suggestions?

Which Konus RDS do you have? Most, but not all of them come with riser mounts/blocks. Did yours not?

Midway has two pages of picatinny risers. Youíll simply need to know the height and length you need. I typically donít give much thought to the risers I use - as long as they are true and tight, itís basically just a brick, so paying top dollar often doesnít buy anything which isnít bought with a lower cost option. I know I have a cheap UTG riser under one red dot - the finish sucks and the big thumb screw is janky, but guess what - it holds just fine. I also have Weaver, Wheeler, Burris, Bushmaster, Badger, and Iím sure a couple others Iím forgetting, and they all work.

He asked for picatinny to picatinny and mentioned itís a 450B, dollars to doughnuts, itís a flattop.

I gather he has one, but to be honest he doesn't state so, so??
if he is looking for a conversion to mount, it might be trickier thus why I asked?
wouldn;t be the first time someone was trying to more creative mod?

I have to agree with Nomercy as usual. I like a 1" riser on my ARs. Then I can usually get by with low scope rings and have good alignment.
