I have one of those too and ran into the same issue. I took off the rear sight and mounted a low cost (ok...cheap) BSA red dot sight and the front sight was just too distracting so I took the dot off and remounted the rear sight. I have thought about getting one of those rails that you mount on the existing top rail that cants a short rail 45 degrees to the right and mount a dot sight on that. That way I could hold the gun normally when using the open sights or roll the gun slightly to the left and use the dot. I don't think he will be able to get a dot high enough to clear the front sight and still have it usable.

"Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience." C.S. Lewis
