Entirely personal preference
the RIS system got a top rail included, I didn't install it on my rifle coz I got no love with it. I was using the type 97 rail from RS company 2 years ago, and frankly it sucks. The aiming line was very high if you mount the optics on the carrying handle. It happend couple times that the BBs hitting on the barrier while I was aiming my targets, this is deadly especially in close range engagement.

Granted, those are SWAT. However, as a fairly tall person, I feel more comfortable with guns that has a higher sight line. On the other hand, I've never handled a QBZ 97 before. Maybe next time I see you at a game you'd let me try your rail set-up? :3

How does being tall have anything to do with how high your sight is mounted? You're field of view is already elevated by physically being taller, there's no need to place your sight higher. Now if you said you have a big head and can't get a good cheek weld...

Sight placement is typically as close to your barrel as possible. It allows your zero'd range to be greater over a sight that is mounted extremely high. Greater accuracy over more distance.

I'm sure someone can be more technical as it currently escapes me how to explain it better.

I know what you mean. However, the length of your neck between your eye to your shoulder affects how comfortable you would be with a low profile rifle. Ever wonder why most stocks aren't flush with the barrel, but is slightly canted down?

That's because although stocks that are flush with the rifle may be accurate and absorbs recoil readily, you'd have to be scrunched down like a turtle to get a good sight line. The m16 and FAMAS solves that problem by raising the sight.



Don't believe me? grab a meter stick, make sure the base of the meter stick is ON your shoulder, and then look down the meter stick as if it's a rifle, with your cheek resting on the stock. Even if it's not hard for you, after a while, it'd get uncomfortable. Maybe that's something that could be gotten used to. Who knows?

Edit: Of course that doesn't mean any particular height regarding sight placement is any better than the other. In addition to how an individual's body is built, different positions require different placements. While for some a higher sight line is easier while standing upright, it would be quite difficult to aim when in prone.

Is the type 97 more back heavy or balanced on top of the pistol grip? The Tar at the TAC11 was too back heavy for me...

type 97 is well balanced, even with your mag on. you can hold it with 1 hand comfortably. but with the aimpoint and RIS on my gun, it slightly shifted to the front.

How about the Type 97b? It looks a bit back-heavy compared to the full-length version. Reason I'm asking, I'm toying with the idea of getting one myself sometime in the future. =/

Just a follow up, the Naval special operator in the front is using the full set of the RIS system, seems that Naval dudes prefer using the full sets while Army guys prefer only use the top parts.
