It is not in the way at all. Please trust me and all of the other experienced shooters on this board. I was in your shoes a little over a year ago. Active duty .mil. I wanted my first privately owned AR15... I wanted an eotech because thats what all the "cool" kids used in Iraq but didn't want the front sight post in the way. I too, bought a Stag Arms with railed gas block. I had zero malfunctions with the stag and eotech, for the record.

Sure its more $$$, but its lighter, the battery lasts forever, and they're pretty much bulletproof.
Oh, and the FSP is not in the way at all. You really don't even notice it. Take it from a guy who's been there, done that. Read Greg Bells thread and don't waste your money like almost everyone else here has. Get something you will really enjoy.

I make it crystal clear, the reason that I'm here. When I be on the mic, to make the people cheer. And make the haters stare, wondering why I'm here, because I take the time to prepare a rhyme.
