Seeing the muzzle brake in my scope

Just mounted a Trijicon 2.5 x 18 x 42 credo on my new Proof Elevation rifle. It has their light sendaro stock. 24" barrel with pva brake that adds 2". There is a factory mounted p rail. I used vortex low rings. On 2.5 power I can see the muzzle brake in the bottom of the fov. Almost looks like a bubble.

I can't see it on 3x. Is this normal? Do I need to buy medium height rings? I was thinking of getting a 9" suppressor, would it cause a problem with medium rings?

I've never had this problem before on dozens of scope and rifle combos.

Just went through the same thing myself…panicked for a bit, but after doing some research came up with it being common. Due to the low power of the scope, the FOV is so great that it’s catching the top end of the brake. As soon as you start increasing magnification it disappears because you zoom out past it. Shouldn’t be an issue at all.

Now with that being said, after adding a suppressor I would imagine it could amplify the issue, I however am not sure. Maybe some one else with more knowledge on it here will chime in and help you out!

Hard to say how much of the suppressor if any will be visible with medium rings , but if the muzzle break bothers you now with low rings the added 9 inches won’t do you any favors. I’ve shot a few different set ups where I could see the barrel and/or front sight of the rifle on lower power.

Shouldn’t be an issue.

If the rail is a 20 MOA rail, and the sight picture bothers you, you can always swap it for a non canted rail.

That being said, suppressor might be a different story.

Any 26" barrel I have ever mounted an optic on, this was the case. Just means you did a good job of keeping your mount low

If low rings are what you need to have your head upright and looking forward while maintaining good head placement relative to the stock, the keep the low rings and don’t worry about the little bit of brake you see in the image - which would be normal in that case.

If you’re looking up towards your eyebrows to get a good sight picture, get taller rings so that your head is upright.

Its a good thing and is in no way a problem - it means you have a wide FOV. You can't get rid of seeing the muzzle brake without reducing what you can see to the sides in your scope.
