The mount is $99 and can use any sight using the T1/T2 mounting style. You can buy it with the Primary Arms dot for $239.

Makes me want to buy another S2k to put it on. Hahaha. Looks pretty cool.

It comes with a string to keep the bolt from closing onto the sight. MAC says it goes to zero fairly well. Looks pretty good too.

WOW....seems like this option really solves ALLOT of issues and is affordable too. Wonder why there is a specific M-Lok location for the mount? Seems like it would work in any of the slots.

I LOVE Midwest industries but this is kind of meh too me personally I like this method
http://www.thektog.org/forum/f85/my-red-dot-mounting-solution-my-sub2k-259571/
Don't have to fold the sight or keep the bolt locked back wich means it's into action must faster if needed...... If I wanted to have to twist things in order to use my red dot I would buy the red lion handguard over this it would hold zero better and sit lower.

Damn. I might actually like this mount if it were not for what tjps has mentioned in being forced to leave the bolt to the rear. However the only time mine is kept folded up is when its in my 5.11 Covert bag so this wouldn't really be a big deal most likely. Now the thought of paracord being your only insurance against that bolt possibly whacking up against your red dot kinda scares me and that I see being really more of an issue than a bit of debris. I'm gonna have to really sleep on this one but I'm actually considering it. I suppose folded with the bolt closed you could just swing the dot up against it.

If someone were to take this Midwest design and just make the swinging part move to the .45 degree out of the way position that would be ideal. Maybe an email to their R&D folk is in order.

eastphilly, thanks for sharing BTW.

BINGO! I would order one in a heart beat. I have 2 flip to side mounts. One for sure wont hold zero, I haven't tried the other because the design doesn't let the r.d. sit flat with the rail.
Even something simple as a spring hinge, designed for the S2K.

It needs that specific location for clearance when the rifle is folded. Further forward and it would hit the charging handle when folded. Further back and it would be able to turn in because the pistol grip would be in the way.

To use this mount as designed, if the rifle is folded, the action must be open. This is an invitation for debris in the action and chamber.
Having the rifle folded leaves the internals open to the ingress of foreign material as much as having the bolt locked to the rear does. I really don't see this being that much of an issue.

I'm working to fabricate the simple safety strap that's better than the provided cord. The only real issue I see is the safety strap not working and cracking the lens of your sight. That being said, I've let my charging handle go a couple of times purposely and it's whacked the PA sight without causing any damage.

If you put it one slot to the rear, it won't fold in because of the receiver. If you put it one slot closer to the barrel it won't fold under the stock tube with the bolt handle forward or back. So, it has to be on the slot mentioned in the video.

It appears this mount will fit the slots on the Red Lion fore end I have on a Gen 1. I'm not sure the sight will be centered vertically over the barrel, although that is not critical. I would mount it on whichever side has the sight closest to my eye.

A;so wondering if that mount clears a Tacticool buffer tube cover.

I will call on Tuesday, and see if they have input on that.

Speaking of the video, what washer did you choose for the suppressor?

Thanks!

MAC makes mention of the uncomfortable little trigger @ 11:26, just saying.
