My dad hates the crappy little pop-up peep sight that's currently on his Mini-30, so I was throwing around the idea of getting him a red dot sight for Christmas. I'm at the very beginning stages of looking into it. My questions were....how would they be mounted on a mini-30? Just a standard Picatinny rail? What problems have you run into, if any, with mounting optics on mini-30s?
What would I need to get besides the sight itself in order to mount it to the rifle?
Did not like them either...good rear sight retro ghost ring..www.tech-sight.com...bought the OEM "hi-rise" 1" ring scope mounts from Ruger...come in SS or blued and I put a good leopold on it..need to be "hi-rise"..normal scope mount to low for ejected brass in both the .223 and .30...Found another WEBsite for the "30" www.har-bar Im interested in the idea..mount a laser..tac-light...lGooduck
