    OP, thanks for explaining. Regarding this, you want to make sure that:
    1. the redirect is handled server side.
    2. the adjusted Mobile page wont be reachable by other devices (redirect users from other devices to the main page)
    3. use canonical tag that points back to the main page (in case Google Mobile bots or others will see it). for ex, the mobile page should point canonically to the main page (i.e. the page that is adjusted to non mobile devices).

    That's it

    Good Luck

    I don't think so mobile redirection will disturb your rankings.
