Scope Consideration for Mini 14
 
I'm sure this has been done elsewhere but what are ya'lls thoughts on a good, well priced scope for my new Mini 14 Tactical? For the record I have a Accu Strut and ATI stock on the way for it. Other than that no mods yet.

What type of shooting are you doing most? Close tactical type shooting a 1-4 power works well in a scout mount. I get out and hunt with my minis so I like the Nikon and Leopold brands in 3x9 power. You need a good scope because the way the minis action cycles, it's hard on cheap scopes.

I will target/plink shoot the most. I will do some hunting though. Most likely coyote/bobcat, possibly a hog, or even a whitetail if the oppertunity comes up. I'm leaning towards a 3X9 or close to that. I know Nikon has a line of scopes made for the .223 bullet, but wasn't sure I wanted to spend that much on one.

A good scope in 3x9 or 2x7 is a good choice.

The Burris Timberline scopes are great for Mini14/30 and smaller carbines. I have (2) 2x7 and the last one I purchased is a 3X9 as they do not make the 2x7 anymore. They are all 32 mm objectives. Have run a fair amount of rounds on a 6.8 mini 14, did some deer hunting with it and got along fine with the scope.

Second that. Tough little scopes with nice glass. Light and compact just like the Mini. Nice FOV at the low end.

I have the Revolution 2-7 on Minis, the 3-9 on a .375 and a 4-12 on a survival-style M700 .308... I like 'em!

OP here. I finally decided on a scope today. Close out deal has it 50% off so it was only 70 bucks. What do you guys think?

Got my new scope today! It's mounted and ready to test so hopefully this weekend I'll have a good report for everyone.
