Can a red dot be mounted in the middle of the handguard or even just behind the front sight? Will be an offset mount. Sub2000 problems.
Like this one...(random internet pic)How far forward? Because of the short stock I will likely need to mount it at the first maglock slot up front. Otherwise I can't get a sight picture.
I saw that. I am first going to try offsetting to one side or the other since fewer moving parts and could still fold it. Because the rifle is so tiny, I might have to hold it sideways (ejection port up). Everything up in the air at this point; I first wanted to check if a forward mounting is OK.Lots of people do that with their sub2ks, or aks with gas tube mounts. There are even scout mounts for bolt action rifles.
Red dots have infinite eye relief, so you just look through them and don't have to worry about the eye box.
Midwest industries makes a great mount for the sub2k that rotates out of the way so you can still fold it.
