The importance of a cowitness, good point, may be less of an issue here if I am able to find a see through set of irons that will work with a mounted scope. I am a bit concerned about the height of the scope that is mounted with a set of see throughs - if it is too high it is not as useful obviously.
I am not looking to buy another riffle so a take down is not a good choice at this point. Trying to make this tactical model meet my needs - may not be possible in the end...
I should have added in the OP that I was interested in having both irons and a scope as I was thinking it would make a better platform for teaching kids on - I am sure that folks will argue that this model 10/22 was not the best base for that intended purpose.
