Scope mounting advice needed for M-4

I would like to mount a scope on my M-4, I am looking at 30mm scopes with 44mm obj. My questions are about what to order, as far as rings and bases or risers, to mount it to a flat top upper M-4? What will provide the correct height for a proper cheek weld. I have no experience with scope mounting M-4s so any and all advice is welcome.

Could you be more specific on the optic you're looking at?

You can mount directly to the receiver or use a sight rail. There are a ton of options available.

I'm looking at a 10x super sniper. It has a 30 mm tube and a 42mm objective, I added a couple more mm to account for the scope cover.
The M-4 has a flat top upper, would I need a riser or just really high rings for proper eye relief and cheek weld. I would also like the option of quickly removing the scope and replacing it with a red dot type optic.

I was hoping to get something that could do double duty on my Armscorp M14 after I get back. The Army is providing the M4 and aimpoint, I just wanted something to throw in a ruck if the need were to arise, such as overwatch at checkpoints ect.

This is the mount I'm leaning towards. Am I headed in the right direction?

Shooter, before you buy take a look at Larue Mounts. I have the SPR mount and it puts the optic at the perfect height for me without stacking. Larue has a design that is easy on and off in seconds with two throw levers. They even have an adjustment built in to the levers in case future snugging up is required. I have a Leupold M3 in mine and trade it off with an Aimpoint (in another Larue quick mount) for close work with no loss of zero.

Sorry Shooter, as you can see I posted about the exact mount that you found on your own. You did not need my help, but, I assure you that you will be pleased. regards
