Well, in sad but happy to report that I never made it to the range with my awesome Minis. While I still had not not shot them, I got to thinking that for these Minis I could get a Springfield M1A....

I had an Eotech 512 on the scout rail on my Mini 30. I didn't care for having the extra weight forward of the action which made it feel unbalanced and it is a little high for my comfort. Otherwise,...

I sold the whole lot of it at the gun show in Pasadena, TX yesterday. I used part of the money to order another Leupold VX-Hog for the Mini 30. 😉

The dog is priceless and not for sale, ha ha! 😄

I'm keeping the scout rails on both. They add quite a bit of flexibility and just plain look good to me. :cool:

You're welcome. I expect that EOTech will go pretty quickly when I post it.

The Ruger Warnes are for a 30mm tube and this new Leopold is a 1" tube. I also discovered I have a set of 1" Warne QD...

Got the Leopold VX-Hog easily mounted on the Mini 14! With the longer eye relief, this one is just right for me. And a better fit on the rifle, too. These are medium Ruger rings. I'm going to get the...

OK... I decided the solution with the most flexibility is to ditch this scope and go with a similar but 1" tubed scope instead. So, I went and got a Leupold VX Hog 1x4 20mm, which has a 1" tube. I'll...
