I am wondering about the cheek weld issue. I am 6'5 and have never had any problem with high mount rings on any of the lever guns I have used them on but I am unsure about the mini. Given my significantly larger than average frame high mount rings may work fine for me... then again the problems with cheek weld may just be exacerabted. I really want to have use of iron sights along with a scope and am unsure about investing in an ultimak & aimpoint or other sighting system due to significant outlay of dollars. I don't mind spending for it if I like it but how will I know if I like a setup until I try it on my rifle?
At least with the see through rings I can continue to use my beloved array of cheap BSA, Tasco, Bushnell ...Scopes and have the handy carbine attributes made possible by iron sights. I guess I will just have to take a stab at it and see how it works.
