Dot sight on Kadet conversion unit?
I'm thinking of putting a dot sight on my .22 Kadet conversion unit, has anyone here already done that?
Since the barrel doesn't move and only a small part of the slide, moves when the gun cycles, I think that I can use the whole topstrap to mount a weaver rail.
I don't want to use the existing rearsight dovetail, because I actually like the sight, but when I'm a bit tired a red dot sight is much more friendly to mu eyes :-)

My eyes are getting older fast, just like me.
A local eye doctor (MD) changed the prescription in my shooting glasses so that the right eye (my strong eye) focuses on the front sight, while the left lens is set for distance viewing. Because my shooting eye is dominant, I generally don't notice the left eye unless I've GOT to see the target clearly, for some reason, and then I close my right eye briefly.
I was amazed at just how much it improved my shooting -- confirming the point that many have made, over the years, that seeing the front sight is more important than seeing (clearly) the target.
You can accomplish almost the same thing, cheaply, by picking up a pair of reading glasses at the drug store. (Take a ruler wth you, and hold it in your hand as you try on different magnifications. Look at the ruler and try to read the number on it, as it extends from your hand. Look at the ruler on a spot about where the sight on a handgun might be.)
