I am planning purchasing a Ruger Gunsight Scout rifle. I have ordered the new Leupold scout scope 1.5 X 4. I would like to mount the scope on the forward rail, and keep the rear sight in place.
I am planning on purchasing the Leupold quick detachable rings for the scope. I know it is important to get the scope as low on the rifle as possible. What height of the rings should I purchase, low, medium or high? What height or rings should I purchase without the rear sight being in the way?
Or do you believe that I should purchase another type and brand of rings that would work better?
Thanks for your response.
