  1. There is a learning curve with a forward scope. Too many “writers” are stupid, lazy or both.

    Also a high mag scope helps some people shoot smaller groups. Sadly, many in the gun press love guns, but can’t shoot.

  2. The rails is [sic] nice, but due to the bolt-action a lot of shooters are going to utilize the mounts and included Ruger rings.

    This sentence seems to support Clint1911’s hypothesis. The whole point of the rail is to mount an IER scope, so that the scope doesn’t get in the way of the action and while reloading.

    Of course, Ruger should have also designed it to take stripper clips, but that’s just a nit for me to pick.

  3. Am I really getting proofread by commenters on OTHER sites now? LOL. Fixed. Thanks for the “[sic]”, Jake.

  4. LOL, a grand for that?

    I bought a surplus FR-8, added a forward mount scope and changed the stock to a synthetic, and got closer to the Cooper Scout Rifle Ideal for around $400 than Ruger did with this nonsense.

    Oh, and my rifle does take stripper clips :)

  5. Also the Ruger pseudo scout doesn’t have a clip guide, which was, once upon a time, part of the reason for the forward scope.

    If you want a pseudo scout, I am happy with mine from Savage.
