i have one on my mini 14 tactical. i have only used it twice, but i like it better than virtually every other red dot i have tried (exception being a holo like eotech, but $$$ ...and imo eotech looks a bit silly on a mini anyways).I'm thinking about putting a Burris Fastfire III on my new Mini. Does anyone have any suggestions, thoughts or insights on this. I'm gettin' too old for iron sites. Thanks.
HOW new is your mini? if it is one of the newer drilled & tapped models that comes with the new rail.....the burris FF fits this set up very well. i just mounted my FF directly on the new rail and it works great. bolt removal is easy for cleaning and it sits nice and low imo. there are even QD mounts that work with this set up (sell ya one i don't use, if you want? )I'm thinking about putting a Burris Fastfire III on my new Mini.

the gun pictured in my above post is a 583 tactical (with an added wood stock). the burris FF will fit well onto the provided rail. i used the mount provided with the FF, which was low and solid.I'm lookin' to put the site on my new 583 series Mini but I also have a 186 series that will need one too. GG&G has a site and rail combo on sale for about $280 but if the site will fit the rail that came with the gun it should be cheaper. Thanks, fellers.
I never tried it, but if you use lets say a fat wrench, and you torque the mounting bolt the same every time, it should be dead on. I have done that with scopes from a 3x9x40 tl 4 x16 x50 with repeatable results, no point of impact change. I am guessing you are thinking of removing it for cleaning right? If you only remove the fastfire with a 1913 mount, thats 1 screw, if you use the gg&g specific mount, thats 2 screws, no big problems. However if I removed the rail or mount from the receiver, that has 4 screws, and it can easily be misaligned, and cause a poi shift. Just my experience. Here is the gg&g fastfire specific mount, also great, have one as well.Can the GG&G rail be removed and then replaced without loosing your zero?
