The weight of this device is at 11.6oz. It is, however, portable enough. While it is completely your decision to where to mount the rifle but the installation is quite simple. The mount knob will not allow to you to over tighten it. so it better to crank it down till it clicks and then turn on the optic. Set it at a brightness that will enable you to see the dot. The adjustments for windage and elevation are 0.5 MOA. As far as the caps for the adjustment screws are concerned, they are held by a rubber strap so you do not lose them. Once you have successfully zeroed your scope, chances are you will not need any adjustments further.
