Rail Risers?

How many of you are using a rail riser for your red dot or tactical scope? I bought a low budget CenterPoint/Crosman red-green dot sight for my MP 15-22 and it seems to sit a tad low on the accessory rail. I figured a riser would fix the issue, anyone else have to do this to get a comfortable line of sight through their optics?

How low is a tad low?

I added this to make my red dot in line with my irons

I was struggling to line up the dot to aquire target. My cheek was smashed against the stock uncomfortably to line up. I think I need about .5 inch of rise. I think I looked at those, just wondered if anyone else uses these, sounds like it's not unusual.

Now I know i'm not just an AR-tard, the setup issue I had was legitimate. I will have to snag some risers when I get a chance.
