Optics & mounting location for Scout

1726 7
I wanted to see what most people were running optics-wise on their Scout rifles. I just picked up my rifle last Friday and wanted to mount some form of optics. I'm not sure which way to go and wanted to collect some opinions from guys who actually had optics on their rifles.

1. Magnified, "scout" scope forward mounted of receiver
2. Electronic dot sight forward mounted
3. Magnified scope mounted on receiver
4. Electronic dot sight mounted on receiver
5. Some other set-up

As far as what I plan to use my rifle for, I figure some shots within 50 yards as well as shots out to 200 yards might be called for. Mostly just paper & other targets, but I would like the option to be able to use it hunting for mule deer & elk in the timber (gotta love that quick follow-up shot!).

Well, I'm going to the range today with an Eotech sitting on a Smith Enterprise receiver mount that I finally (after a year :roll:) mounted on my M1A bush rifle.

I'll let you know...

I am pleased!!
It took about 5 shots to get it on paper
5 more to get it on target.
The Smith mount is rock solid on the receiver and the Eotech worked like a champ
I also put a Hakko BED 35 on my SU-16 and boy, what a difference that made.
Another SU-16 shooter tried mine out and said he would order one that night
I am truly impressed by how fast and accurate these holo sights are
