Is there an easy red dot mount for the gen1? I would still like to fold the carbine. Maybe a side mount?? Anyone have something that works well?

Thanks

Not sure but the cost would probably be close to the Red Lion forearm. Maybe not but installing the barrel may have its own set of problems. Really all I would like to do is get the sights up a bit rather than pressing my cheek down. Just trying to make it more comfortable to shoot. I really didn't want to put a lot of money in it. May just leave it alone but if something was easy and cheap enough that would be great.

Easy is to buy the factory quad rail. Mount your scope of choice. The latest trend has a red dot mounted to a side rail with an angle mount. Usually in the 1-2 o'clock position to allow folding.

thanks, went to the kel tec sight but the only quad rail I could find doesn't look like it would fit on the sub? I can be wrong. It looks like it fits in front of the forearm of a .223 kind of barrel. Is there something I am missing here? I think the price was 46 bucks if that helps you know what I saw. Are you referring to the Red Lion hand grip? If so that surely would work but it's about 172 bucks with one pic rail!!

Can you give me a link to the quad rail your talking about. I don't think your talking about the Red Lion but I can't find one for the sub on their site.

Thanks guys checked out all the links.

Just thinking here. Has anyone put a pic rail on the side of the forearm with an angle mount over the barrel with a quick release for a red dot? I know about loosing zero when I take it off but it could work for me if it makes sense and I knew what I needed to do it.

I have recently acquired a Sightmark red dot with quick release. Anybody have any experience with it? Does it really keep the zero when taking on/off? I'm skeptical, but it reportedly is supposed to and I haven't been to the range with it yet.

I have 2 sightmarks. Yes they will keep zero even if you remove it. I always take note of which slot it is in, and put it in the same spot.

Great news 850sub, thanks. It looks like one could attach it to the bottom rail and fold as normal. Then when open, detach and reattach to top rail for use.
What is your experience with zero when flipping between reticle choices? I keep reading/ hearing people claiming that rezero may be necessary when changing them.
Thanks

I can tell, when changing the retical, that it could effect accuracy. I just make sure it is centered in the detent. Never had a problem. And Yes! You can take it off the top, and store it on the bottom rail while folded. Note, my experience is only with gen 1 S2K ( factory quad rail, or barrel mounted rail). So I'm not so sure about the GenII forend. But I have mounted red dots on other guns with really crappy, flexing rails, and still cut the size of my groups in half!
