Hi all, I have a stainless mini 14 that I want to put a scope on and wanted some input on what scope to get, Don't want to spend alot of money (under $300). Coyote,rabbit, plinking and backup SHTF is all I use it for, Was thinking about a 3 X 9?
I just wanted to know what other have

I put a red head 2x7 on the one i own and it is doing good. the clearence between the objective lens and the hand gaurd is a issue with mounting a scope on some minis but you can grind the hand gaurd a little and it clears.

2-7 or 3-9 is Perfect.
I have a 3-9X40 Bushnell Elite.
I use mine for just the Purposes you mentioned.
Nikon Buckmaster is a great choice and under $200 :thumbsup:

Do you have a mini 14 ranch? If not, my friend had a hard time getting his mini 14(non ranch) to hold zero. He purchased several different mounts and couldn't keep them straight and just gave up.
