I believe in the KISS system. (keep it simple stupid) I have a Bushnell Trophy XLT 30mm 1-4X24 scope with an illuminated 1 moa red dot. I dont have to turn the scope on to use it as a scope. Same gun as yours with the low gas block. Scope cost me $180 on sale. SWFA has an Optisan with forward off set mount for $150. I dont know how good it is but check it out if you really need to keep it low. Too much going on in the reticle for my taste.
