Need a ballistic trajectory calculator (or 2) for your iPhone?
Ballistic is a fast, highly-accurate ballistic trajectory calculator and range companion for the iPhone. Ballistic calculates path, windage, velocity, time, and energy for any valid range, and can compensate for atmospheric conditions such as temperature, barometric pressure, humidity, and altitude. It's also much more than a basic trajectory calculator. With a vast library of over 1,000 projectiles, range estimation calculator, and a range log, Ballistic is a complete mobile companion for hunting or at the range.

I am unable to find any information about this mount on the Knight's Armament site.

There is debate over whether or not having a full-automatic bolt carrier group in a semi-automatic rifle implies constructive posession. If you read this thread you can read correspondence between Colt and the ATF about this not being an issue with a certain provision.
