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.
