Is it possible to put a traditional scope mount on a M1A Scout rifle? I don't care for the forward position, but I like the muzzle brake and the short barrel. The goal is to put an ACOG on it, but I don't think they have extended eye reliefs
Check out this month's issue of Soldier of Fortune. Chuck Karwan has an excellent article on the MIA Scout and discuses the various sighting systems available for it. Of particular interest to you should be the Aimpoint Comp M-XD adapted by the US military.
