sorry, loco....i don't have much to offer here in the way of advice.
my experience with red dots is limited. from high quality to el-cheapo...they don't play well with my eyes....
open reflex sights like the burris fast fire seem to work better for me....so i might use something like that if i pursue another mini.
i have no experience with scout scope set ups. i find the concept intriguing, but i have yet to get any experience with them. i probably have more questions than you do, as i have been casually looking at bolt action scout scope set ups recently.
i agree with the others that it seems the scope you listed doesn't have the eye relief to be used as a scout scope.
i have never minded a scope/optic over the action of the mini. never been a prob. for me at all, but everyone has their preference. i heard the new minis comes with rings AND a rail mount?
guess you can report back on that...
