A red dot mounted significantly away from the eye will cause the parallax to be more significant in getting and holding a good sight picture and hitting the target. While most RDS companies say there is no parallax on their optics, there really is and it can come into play. I know this because I worked as a government funded contractor a few years back evaluating various RDS optics for law enforcement use and found out that parallax was present in every optic.
I agree. I only got two guns with optics mounted forward, one being a Marlin 1895 Guide Gun in .45-70 and the other is a Benelli S90 shotgun.
