I just bought a Mini 14 and my local gun shop doesn't seem to know what I need to mount a rail style red dot scope on it. Any suggestions?? I am mostly shooting jacks on the run.
If it is one of the Ranch Rifle models, it already has bases to mount a scope, so for a red dot you would probably just have to buy a rail to put on those. If it is an older style they the mount connects to the side of the reciever. Check Cheaper Than dirt to look at the mounts they have for it.
