Cantilever mount. Search it on ebay or other supply websites.

I dont own one, but I've seen them on the MR1, and they work. I saw a bunch on eBay and they were about 20-30, maybe 40 dollars. Search there, I think that it came with a scope/red dot.

Keep in mind .... ANY gun with a CENTER FEED has actual sight picture over the barrel obstructed. With using ANY type of sighting devise that gets mounted off to the side of the ideal vertical position will suffer from parallax issues of not only the VERTICAL, but HORIZONTAL.

ALL sighting devices mounted VERTICALLY on guns that shoot with a rainbow arc will only be "On Target" at a VERY specific range.
Set the sighting device off to the side, the issues gets really BAD !! ... Unless gun is tilted putting scope/sight over the top of barrel can it actually aid you in getting the ball to target at guns sighted in range.

This is a CLASSIC case in point why many ACCURATE markers are fitted with either Right or Left sided feeds. This allows the use of center line sighting of barrel using either bare sight rails or a red dot scope.

IMO, those manufacturers making sight mounts that are either side of center are only a CRUTCH for a gun design that is not worthy of a sighting device to begin with.

Mine sits off to the side on my MR2, and while it took alittle patience, it sighted it just fine.

Spec Ops Just released a new stock for the MR series, which should take care of the clearance issues. And for only $50 bucks, you can't beat it.
