Do you mean the mini RDS is for pistol or small firearm only. The full size RDS is for rifles?

I've seen folks use a mini RDS on a carbine or SMG before in lieu of a front sight even. Not common but possible.

Would it required a special mount for a mini RDS on a rifle?

Just like all your other questions the answer is Yes/No/Maybe/It Depends.

Most rifles are covered in rails these days, and most red dots and holosights mount direct to a rail, just like the one linked to does.

Without you with your piece in hand though it's a guessing game.

With the low, low profile RIS mount that it comes with you can use it...but it's low.

There are riser mounts for it...similar to the riser for the Micro T1

Take a peek at military morons...I think the guy there had several Docter sight setups on a couple of rifles.

Too small for me...the Micro T1 is about as compact as I'd go.

Here...http://www.militarymorons.com/weapons/ar.optics.html Right click on the link and select Open With...then select Spoon

There are even some more red dot and magnifier shots on there for you.

Would anyone explain the differences between holographic sights and reflex sights? Which is better?

You don't like to search do you? The search bar is at the top of the page and is there just waiting for you to use it. Don't want to hurt its feelings do you?

Holographic sights project a holographic reticle that seems to lie on your target. Reflex sights are somewhat similar but their technology is MUCH more simple, thus lower price tag. They reflect an LED (usually) onto a glass that allowed you to see the dot placed on the POA/POI (point of aim/point of impact) to a degree, no matter what angle you look at it.

Are G&G, AEG and KWA good quality brands?

AEG isn't a manufacturer it's a type of airsoft gun, as for whether G&G and KWA are good brands is a matter of opinion, personally i'd take a G&G over a KWA but i would take brands like CA or G&P over both.

SRC isn't TM compatible (just the externals) so for what you want the M4 for it would be pointless, i think you should just stick with a G&G M4 variant because they are cheaper then either choices and you shouldn't have a problem for upgrades because they are 100% TM compatible to my knowledge although they seem to like parts made by CA the best. I've seen some nice gun's built of cansoft G&G (RITZ).

EDIT: KWA would be a good pick as well but i'm not sure it's TM compatible.

May I ask why TM compatible is important? Do you mean the possibility of upgrading G&G m4 with TM gearbox?

TM is like the Grandfather of AEG's and most people copy or create their designs using the same system of pins screws etc, since most company's are cross compatible with TM after market companies cater to them meaning an abundance of parts for TM compatible guns especially for M4's.

If your new to airsoft, dont bother trying to build a gun from scratch :P buy one thats stock, then put all your internal and external upgrades into it as you go. That way you wont waste money on useless crap, you can figure out what you need and what will fit your playstyle as you game the gun. I know this has probably been said like a dozen times already lol
