I have a DPMS 16" A2 carbine. Not a flat-top. I gonna go with the 510 EOTech, not sure if it will be lithium or alkaline. I want to mount this far out on the handguards. I know I need a rail but what kind and how much will it be. Another question I have is will I still be able to use my iron sights once the EOtech is mounted. I'am new to AR's and very new to scopes. Thanks

"510" is a series, not a type. It consists of the 511 and the 512.

The 511 is the shorter N-cell one and the 512 (which I have and recommend) is the AA-battery one. The AA one will operate with Alkaline and Lithium cells, as well as various rechargables.

Now to answer your question, you need either a rail handguard system or a gooseneck mount. Nothing else is required beyond that.

Edited to correct my spelling.

Thank you for correcting me. Is the gooseneck mount the one that goes from the handguard than over the carry handle? The handguard rail would just mount to the top of my handguards correct?
