I have an older, 182 series, Mini. The worst thing I ever did was to put a 3x9 Leopold on it. It magnified the inaccuracy. When using the iron sights I never realized that it was relatively inaccurate. It now has a Tasco ProPoint and I believe that is perfect for the capabilities of the rifle matched with my old eyes.
The inaccuracy is fixable with an Accu-Strut and a trigger job but I really like a reliable 1-3x scope
on a Mini. It give you a true 1x at the low end and enough magnification to reach out to the Mini's limits.
