After deciding to go with the PA 1-6x24 w/ KISS reticle, the only thing left to do with the RDB is to mount a light.  So far I haven't come up with an option that I like.  The bottom rail won't work, because I put my off hand as far forward as possible.  Direct mounting on the top rail won't work because the scope doesn't leave room.  I've been toying with an offset mount, with the light on the right side, opposite the charging handle.  This works, but activating the light is a PITA.

Now I'm thinking about flipping that arrangement and putting the charging handle on the right side of the rifle.  Does any one else here run their CH on the right side?  Any reasons why it's a bad idea?

How about other mounting locations besides the top or bottom rails?  I'm open to some shade tree gunsmithing if someone has come up with some better ideas.
