here is a pic of mine... i can take off the covers on my rail system and move my optics up more forward so that it allows me to have rear flip up sights or i can just remove the 3X magnifier behind the optics and fit it in there

No pics sorry. Ok where your quadrail is at i have the stock forend and it sits up higher than your quad rail. I want to put a hunting type scope on mine and it hits my forend. Is there high scope rings i can use and still use my iron sights.
