    i'm having trouble deciding on a red dot sight for my mini14. i have a sightron on my 10/22 and have been very pleased with it aside from the odd tube diameter (33mm), which makes mounting options very difficult.

    the sight will be mounted somewhat forward due to the design of the stock i have

    anyone else have a forward mounted red-dot? i was thinking i need to go 40mm tube or maybe reflex type. the recoil on the mini is pretty rough, so it needs to be rugged. i would love to get an eotech or trijicon, but they are out of price range.

    just wondering what everyone else is equipping and any pros/cons with your particular setup.

    I took my Aimpoint out today and at 100 yards was hitting paper every shot while standing. I'm still happy!

    Have EO Tech, Aimpoint, and older Tasco Pro points. I like the EO tech the best account it's an all in one unit, as in mount is included in the sight and because of the the reticle itself. I like the smaller dots over larger for close as well as far accuracy. The EO Tech has the 1 min. small dot for long range precision and the 65 min. circle for up close and quick. Got several but feel the 512 that is non-night vision and AA battery is the way to go $$ wise for most people. The Tasco's are mostly 30mm tubes for easy matching to rings of your choice. Aimpoints except the new M4 and the micro's require rings also.
