Welcome Quisp. I have a Burris 4x that I have moved from one gun to another. It took the abuse of a Colt King Cobra in stride with out any complaint. It is now on a much milder Ruger MK III but like Permafrost says it makes for a big package and I have to prop it on something to hold steady. The red dots will make for a much lighter and more compact package but watch the size of the red dot on the scope as many are 4 or 5 MOA and that starts covering a lot of target when you stretch the yardage out. There are some with smaller dots and that is the way I would go. A lot depends on how you want to use it.
