I seem to recall something somewhere about a weaver type of base that uses the Ruger scallops to allow the use of "other" types of optics etc. I just can't recall where.
You also might google "1" red dot optics, scopes" & see what comes up. Try 30mm optics too.
ha ha, take your pick. Don't know if it matters, both should be good . I was a bit nervous driving across Montana last month to go elk hunting. Kept seeing all those Angus ranches, hoping no one would see me running loose.
And no, I didn't get an elk, but still had a great time. Did get two grouse though, a blue and a ruffed, both with the bow.
