Yes you could, but I dont suggest it , they arent a free floating hand guard and they can move around when bumped , I would say pass on the idea

I'd pass. Those handguards aren't free floated, they are held in place by the d ring. They do move around. Mounting a sight to them is not a great idea.

Like others said. BAd idea. Troy industries has a Black Friday sale going on. 20% off all orders. I'd recommend you get the Alpha rail or Bravo rail depending on what other attachments you want/need.
