I have a new mini 14 tactical LE model. I got it to serve as a hybrid weapon. It can be folded short for home protection, or full lenth for varmit shooting. My question is about the scope. I mounted a 3x9x32 scope on it for 75-100yd shots when hunting cyote/beaver. I also want to mount my red dot scope on it for shorter distance. If I mount the red dot on the top of the fore end, and the rifle scope in the ruger mounts, will that work? I have seen tactical short range rifles with this setup before. I can't see any reason it would ceate a problem, as long as my red dot scope is not a magnified one. The rifle scope should peer directly through the unmagnified red dot scope, correct? Yes I know that removing th erifle scope causes it to become out of adjustment, but not my mutch. I have been removing my scope on my ruger hunting rifle for years, with only minimal adjustment needed after. Nothing that would cause me to miss a cyote or small animal at 75-100yds. Ruger's ring mounts are machined close enugh, and I mark the tightening screws. That's not my issue, the red dot is!
