Scout scope on AR-10

I really dig the "scout" scope thing. I have a spare Leupold IER scope that I wanna mount on my AR-10. Anyone know of a good way to accomplish this?

I've seen some replacement handguards that have rails built in. Those wouldn't hold well enough to mount a scope to, would they?

Does anyone make a gadget that sort of cantalievers forward from the front of the upper receiver a few inches or so? That sounds like what I need, but I'm not sure that such a critter exists.

Any other creative solutions?

Thanks

Yankee Hill Machining makes something that would work: http://www.yankeehillmachine.com/store/rails.html Scroll down about halfway.

The free floating rails would work OK. You could look at LaRue's SPR mount, but I don't know if that would move the scope forward enough.
