Default Scopes for Mini 30 ???

I have heard from a few that Mini 30's are hell on scopes. I am looking for a scope for my Mini 30. I was told the recoil is not the problem as much as the vibrations of the action on the slide that is hard on them. I have had the suggestion for the Leapers 1.5-6 x 44mm. Designed for heavy recoil on air rifles. Anyone that can lend some advise as to their experiances would sure help out for future desicions.

Have the back of the barrel tapped and use a long eye relief handgun scope.

a 2x or 2.5x fixed power will give you all the magnification you'll ever need for a 7.62X39.
