I'm considering adding this sight to my 22/45 target. Should I look to dovetail it and replace the rear sight or mount it in front of the stock sight? From the looks of it I have the option no?

Drv,...you can go either way. I yanked my rear sight off, and put the FF2 right there. I put the FF3 on my wife's Browning,..(she did not like the Branded Browning sight, which was all of 48 bucks) so we just put it back in the box... I had wanted the 3 for one of my Centerfires,...so be it.
The other thing I did, was change the front sight to a Tritium Blade front,..it shows up much better in the sight picture IMO, esp with "53" year old eyes. On my wife's Browning we painted her front sight with Green Neon nail polish, that way if she gets bored with the color, we can "remove" it, and change it to Bright Red or Orange. A word of warning on that,..if you go the "cheap" route and use the wife's nail polish for the front sight, DO NOT use the Clear overcoat the ladies use to "seal" the polish on their toes....It won't come off!!!

Is there a preferred option for the location? I think the rail would probably be the most flexible option considering it can be removed easily and there's still a rear sight to use.

I have seen some folks leave the rear sight on, AND some like me take it off. I Imagine you can mount it right in front...

I have a Fastfire 2 that I originally stuck on a .357 revolver. I found it a bit small for that use, it was hard to pickup again quickly after recoil. What your doing should be fine. I was shooting Bowling Pin Matches, speed mattered. I replaced it with a C-More Railway. The Fastfire 2 ended up on my CX-4 carbine.
For your use, you should be fine. Burris makes quality stuff.
Ironically, on my MK3, I stuck a $45 bargain rack BSA reflex on it. Going on 3 years and it just keeps working. Ugly as hell but it does the job:



I'll buy something better looking when this thing dies.

Got the Burris mounting plate to fit in the rear sight groove.

Once in a while the spent shell "stumbles" over the edge of the sight...otherwise it's superb..
