Looks real good. Are the sights Co-witness?

I like the look of that sight mount! Compact and where a sight should be aesthetically for me. I went on your webpage and saw that it is pre-order at this time so I'll likely wait until I hear some feedback from actual users, however, I think that might be a winner.

BTW: The webpage says the sight doesn't co-witness with the front sight.

Very slick looking, nice to see another mounting option for a Mini. I see that there is some info on the website, even if none is provided here.
I could be wrong, but I think for a co-witness, you have to have 3 sights, so the dot optic will co-witness with the other two ( iron sights), I only see 1 iron, the front.

Cant use my iron sights , thats the deal breaker for me. Iam sure your product is top quailty, but if the optic fails on my rifle, my quick detach removes it instantly and Iam back at it with my irons. That sight removes the irons completely from the rifle and is it screwed to the gun using the iron sight mount ? Just saying , I wont give up my iron sights.

i agree 100%. this is a very slick and effective looking red dot system....however.....no irons, no thanks. i want open sights on EVERY gun i have. i personally cannot understand why anyone would purchase a firearm without them or remove them. but i understand & respect that everyone does not agree with me on this stance.

That is a neat rifle, thinking of getting an AR, but others I know tell me to consider this rifle.
It makes sense to keep the iron sites as a fall back, if you completely lose the iron site option I could see that as an issue, but I'm new and still learning.

Living in Commiefornia as you do, a Mini Ranch Rifle isn't a bad choice because it's not an 'evil' black rifle.

That looks great. Go with the Red Dot and don't worry about the iron sights. The dot is faster to pick up and will prove to be more accurate. It's a lot easier on the eye and easier to focus on your target. Read the article in American Rifleman from this month. Doug Koenig explains the advantages of the Red Dot.

It's actually faster than the iron sights once you get use to it. Battery life is better than they ever were. Just think. The military uses Aimpoints on their rifles because it's easier to teach the troops.
