Default Magpul Scout Mount

I know it is intended for a flashlight, but would I be able to mount a mini reflex on there similar to Daniel Defense's 1 o'clock mount? I've yet to find a pic of anyone trying it.

I'm sure it could mount an optic on it, but I doubt it will work very well. An optic needs a really solid mount and I'm just not sure how sturdy the magpul mount would be. Not to mention that the Magpul foregrip itself isn't a sturdy base for an optic mount. All the magpul foregrips I've used wiggled back and forth.

While the mount is very solid, I wouldn't recommend it for that purpose.

Yuo need to be able to rotate the gun and have the sight come up in your field of view, and you would be searching for the sight with it mounted so high.

Assuming you're using a scope on the top of the receiver, you should have room under the scope and between the rings for one of these:

I use that under a Bushnell Elite 3200 5-15x with a FastFire II on the Weaver Offset Mount. Without breaking cheek weld, I rotate the AR and the FastFire II comes up perfectly.

That's my experience with the products.
