It appears that ths short side rails become useless after the EOtech 553 has been mounted. In addition thE main top rail is too short to mount an EOtech magnifier or PVS behind the 553. Does anyone have a suggestion. My side rail has only one screw and a fitted u style mount on the side that the small rail sits in. In addition what are y'all doing for backup metal sights? ANY SUGGESTIONS WOULD BE GREAT. THANKS, C9A1 - C9SG.US :p

There are some aftermarket siderails available for the tri-rail model that will allow you to use them and still use the eotech.

Critical Dimensions used to be a sponsor here - and he had an extended optic rail. It may have been barely long enough to fit a 511 (N Battery Eotech) and the magnified together. However, that would do you no good, as you have the tri rail version. This was an add on optic rail for people with the standard model.

As for backup sights - that is the downside of the tri rail vs the standard.

The backup sights aren't worth a whole lot on the standard - but I guess they are there if U needed them.
