Congrats on your acquisition, and welcome to the forum !
Minis and red dots go together like pizza and beer.
Scopes, any scope, adds too much weight and messes with the Minis great handling and balance.
I only use a scope for load testing, as my eyes aren't what they used to be.
I can shoot as well at 100 yards with a dot as I can with a scope, and the dot is good enough to hit C-O-M at 300 yards and beyond.
Add the dot is much faster to get on target, and much better in low light.
Avoid cheap dots, some don't hold zero and go through a lot of batteries.
Expect to spend at least $200 for a good RDS like the Vortex Venom or Burris FastFire III.
There are some exceptions, a Primary Arms micro dot is right at $100, and they hold up great, another sub $100 dot that many run is the Bushnell TRS-25. Some have had issues with their TRS-25 but Bushnell will send you a new one.
I prefer the small T.V. screen micro dots like the FastFire. All 3 of my Mini-30's have them:
Some of the tube style dots mare almost as big and heavy as a scope. This Aimpoint Pro was nice, but was massive compared to a FastFire or Venom, and sat up way too high, even on the Ultimak rail:
I had a Hogue stock for a while. I like the green color, but it was heavier, thicker and too "grabby" compared to the Ruger synthetic factory stock. It tends to grab your shirt when you are shouldering the carbine.
Here is the Hogue I had, with metal done in FDE Cerakote:
I like the Ruger stock much better, light, slim, stiff and grabby only where you need it, where the checkering is.
I just prefer a color other than black, so I Cerakote my Ruger stocks in FDE or Sage green.
I find a synthetic stocked Mini with red dot to be a perfect rig for SD, SHTF or just plain fun. Although I have had at one time, or could have just about anything, I prefer my Mini-30s over everything else I've tried.
