Nice rifle. I'm jealous.

I have an EOTech 512 with a Vortex 3X magnifier on my AR that I like.

But that I purchased six years ago. I'm sure there's better stuff out there now.

For rear sights I replaced the one on my Mini with this

Make sure you get one for the right model, they changed things in 2005 and you don't mentioned if it's a pre 580 series (older model) or current production 580 series.

Flash hider again you'll have to Google what will fit your model.

I would also recommend getting this

Mini 14's are infamous for getting "loose" groups after 10 rounds or so, as the barrel warms up. I keep meaning to get one myself but never do.
