The MR3 handle itself mounts to the marker using a 7/8" rail. There is a 3/8" dovetail on the top of the handle. So, you can mount a sight with a 3/8" dovetail (22 cal) mount on the handle or remove the handle and use the 7/8" mount. If you choose to mount the sight to the top of the handle I would recommend a smaller, low-profile sight like the Armson Pro Dot sight. I tried using a 30mm BSA sight and much of my field of view was blocked by my hopper.
But, I like the large field of view that the 30mm BSA sight offers so I removed the carry handle, exchanged my sight for one with a 7/8" mount and mounted the sight directly to the marker using the 7/8" rail.
In any event, I recommend you have your hopper mounted to the marker when you try out a sight.
