I did the same when i used to have an exile. I had to mount a front mounted limb saver one, because it had no rear drilled hole. Worked great though
It still has the front mount until I get a few extra minutes to drill and and tap it for a rear mount. I move it away from the string and shot it and it actually seems quieter to me w/o it. But since my POI changed, I put it back.
