    talk to the guys (and gorgeous girls) at gunworks....a simple spartan would work ok and may be slim enough to help out with open sight issue...Im thinking looking at photo they MIGHT be able to fit a ghost ring aperture to rear of action and fit front sight where the rear is now or maybe even move that forward some more. whats the bit sticking down below front sight???looked like sling swivel but then spotted one in stock...appears to be barrel band....that will get in way of thread etc...the front sight looks to be to far forward to go with a muzzle forward jobbie too so may aswell go over barrel.......

    I would talk to a few. I use Gunworks myself and I have seen a sling fitting attached to a suppressor but I would never do it myself.

    Once suppressed usually the foresight comes off. Most use a red dot or similar if they want to avoid scopes for some reason. (bail guns or bush guns etc....)
    An end can would still need the front sight to be moved back in order to leave length for the thread, but most would simply remove and go over barrel suppressor. It would seem pointless to buy a short rifle then go and make it longer than a normal one....

    I have also seen a clip on sling attachment that "grabs" around the barrel much like a pipe clamp that worked rather well.
