    I'm wanting to put something like a Burris fast fire 2 on a NAA mini-master 22mag.

    OK, now that you've stopped laughing, Seriously!
    I'm telling you this not to make you spit your coffee out but garner some hopefully useful input.

    I'm wondering if there is something smaller than the Burris. It is real hard to tell from the likenesses represented in the ads, so thought some of you may have more hands on with them.
    Preferably 2 or even 1moa., considering functional range with its 4" barrel neighboring 25 yards.
    Why? Because I can, and believe it would make a killer squirrel, rabbit and grouse popper in a light to carry unit. I've gotten fairly good with my poor eyes at guessing with the iron sights provided. Red dot would enhance my accuracy and fun.
    Thank you kindly.

    JP Enterprises makes the lightest at 1/2 oz.

    There is the Aimpoint Nano... but the only way to get it is on one of those overpriced Brugger & Thomet pieces of Eurotrash, since the Nano was a private contract for them.

    I just looked at them. Thanks, while definitely lighter, their 4moa, Burris 3, as for size, which comes in about a wash (JB's is same height, .02 wider but .2 shorter) so since I have history with the fastfire2, and comes in roughly a hundred less. I'm still leaning for Burris.

    JP Jpoint, Docter, Burris Fastfire, Vortex Venom are all really close to the same size. I've used Docter, Burris
    and Vortex, currently flogging a Venom on a CZ75.

    I am not 100% sure on this, but I think Crimson Trace makes laser grips for this gun too?

    I just may think about that..
    I'm wondering if BB or airsoft sights will appreciate the considerable opposite reaction the gun produces.
    As you say though, at that price, it might provide cheap entertainment to experiment with them.

    I had an Aimpoint. Worked fine, but even if available, the Nano should mirror its siblings scope shape, I prefer instead the dog sled style .

    They do, thank you, but rather worthless for daylight small game use. Also, I prefer the grips I made over what NAA or Crimson has to offer. they just fit better

    For a little pistol like that, I think you're pretty much limited to a red pimple on the end of your nose. :D

    I know the kids [ they are aged 27 to 40 now] had them on 22 and 22 mag rifles and their air rifles. They say springer air rifles are as hard on them as it gets.
    We had a few of them and I think most of them got damaged while they were in soft cases banging around in the truck. Not while they were actually using them.

    Good Luck DR
