If you have the original stock you will want the offset mount that I posted because the other one will be to long and your top hand guard will get in the way. Just take of your top handgaurd, tap out the 2 pins in the rear sight, slide the rear sight towards the muzzle off its dovetail, install the offset mount on the dovetail and put your top handguard back on again. I used the two pins to my advantage to hold the mount very solid....I put the rear pin behind the mount and I filed a groove in the mount to slide the front pin through it. Then you will of course need a handgun scope to use in the mount. Hope that helps.
