I'll let "AR-natives" correct me if I'm wrong, but you can utilize basic "Sport" configuration's short Picatinny top rail, suitable for off-set mounts (to keep sights unobstructed). You can mount your laser at 45 degrees (Barska p/n AW11722; many others available) or with parallel extention (first is more compact).
You can also get barrel-mounted adapter, but I wouldn't hang anything onto my barrel.
S&W Tactical line is utilizing quad rail, to which you can hang virtually anything you want with much ease (see below).
If you're asking about AK line: it's simpler to maintain and operate, but more complex to hang an accessories in basic, entry-level configuration. Most of them comes here with dovetail-type of side mount rail, but hanging small laser to bulky sidemount might be not worth the trouble. Then you should replace your lower handguard with "tactical" style, containing 1-3 Picatinny rails.
I presume we're on AR page; therefore, short answer is still "Yes".
Hope that helps.
