This scope is really easy to mount. It did require taking the stock off to remove a plate, and re-install a modified plate that holds the new rail in plate. But it was not hard to figure out and very little work. At first it seemed it did'nt align, but moving it around a little matched it up well with the stock and receiver. Again, if at first it doesn't appear to fit, move it around a little, in my case down and to the left as you're looking at the thumb screw they provide.
Pros: Fits perfect on my tactical stock mini 14, good solid fit
Cons: none that I can think of
