Reflex sight on a single action?

Is it heresy and justification for being burned at the stake to install a reflex dot sight on a Single Six revolver?
If you were to do it, which sight/mount would you use?

Me? Yes. And the title by itself has a certain ring to it. Almost like saying something
that means something that you can't quite put into words.

ngashooter will become famous soon enough
Do what works for you. I have a NM SBH .44mag with big, ugly Hogue rubber grips and a 2x scope on a Warne mount. It hits what I aim at. I consider it a tool to deliver big bullets. I might swap out the scope for a non-magnifying optical sight at some point. On the other hand, it doesn't appear in my avatar with my "pretty" single actions either.
