I thought others may find this useful.

I changed over to a NcStar RedDot scope, Model DBB-142 (1X, 42 mm
objective lens).

I used a Weaver 2 piece mounting rail with a spacer to clear the knobs.
I can easily remove the Finderscope without affecting the alignment too
much, but it easy to tweak it back in. The red dot intensity is
adjustable. The dot size seems to vary from 5 MOA down to 2 MOA as you
turn down the intensity.
