    Has anyone mounted a Red Dot scope to the new Mini-14 or Mini-30 Tactical rifle? If so, what Red Dot scope and accessory to mount it did you use? Can't decide what to get. Thanks

    I mounted an AmegaRanges front rail then put a Bushnell TRS-25 on it. Small and accurate.

    I went to look for the front rail and got so many different models to choose from, I probably should have asked; Do you know the model # for the front rail? Thanks. Rick

    Never mind. Found it!

    I have older minis so my mounting options are different but I went with the Bushnell TRS 25.. great little holo and uses the inexpensive CR2032 lithium wafer batteries

    Got a good deal on mine at amazon.com with barrel clamp rail and QD base, all super saver free shipping too

    Weigand Combat makes the "Weig-a-tinny." Worked great for my eotech. Mounts to the factory dovetails.

    The TRS 25 is 1/4 the size of the mini Eotech. I love my Eotechs and have several on other weapons, but they seem too large for the slender mini 14. Besides you can buy 4 TRS 25s for one Eotech

    Can't argue with you there.
