As a Viet Nam vet I am very familiar with sight picture for military rifles. Qualified expert with M-16 in the good old days.

However at my age I have trouble focusing on and finding rear sight on my Mini-14/Colt m-4 22LR.

Any suggestions on a reasonably priced red dot and will I have to by two scopes?

As long as you have a rail on both your rifles that is the same - you can get one red dot to fit on both [assuming your Colt M4 has a "flat top"].

I like the ultradot 4...

I like these two. I have the Vortex Strike Fire, but had I seen the Lucid first, I'd have it. The Strike Fire comes with a 2 power "doubler". The Lucid has a doubler you can buy for a nominal fee. I have the high mount so the dot sits right on top of my front sight post.

Here is my rifle with the Strike Fire mounted.
