Default AR scope mounts?

I built another AR recently and have decided that I want to scope this one (other one has BUIS and an EoTech) BUT I want to still be able to use my BUIS sights on this one also. Looking for suggestions/opinions on a good "see through" scope mount system. Thanks in advance.

Why not just put the back ups on a 45 degree offset mount?

If I have to, I will, I just want to explore my options to use what I have and where they're mounted now.

Gotcha. I am interested in what others have to say as well.

Never seen a "See through" set up on an AR.
Always thought that was just a gimmick for bolt gun stuff. Scope always ends up too high to be practical.

Put the scope where it needs to be. Approx 1.5" high to C/L on most AR's. Then run your backup sights or red dot at 45 degrees.
