1.- Is anybody familiar with the B-Square scope mount for the Ruger GP100 that clamps/mount on the gun with 3 hex screws but not attached to the front and rear sights?
2.- Want to mount a scope on a GP100 6" barrel and will like to know who can recommend a good scopes/rings at a fair price (not to much$$$)
I know very little of rings for this gun, but do know that sometimes good things come in great prices and usually you get what you pay for.
What do you think Ruger "pistoleros" that have been there and done that?

The B-Square mounts for the GP100, that I am aware of, use the front and rear site mounting points to attach the base. I tried one and found it less than satisfactory. I don't shoot anything but factory loads yet with a scope mounted on the B-Square base, the front mounting point began to deform causing the scopes zero to wander. After I discovered this, I took it off and had my GP drilled and tapped and a slightly shorter base mounted. Works much better.

I use a Weaver Classic 2X28 handgun scope mounted in Weaver medium rings. Works great for me...

Here is the scope....

I have installed a scope on my 6 inch GP100 using the B-Square mount as mentioned. I did quite a bit of research before I went that direction and found that unless you drill and tap as Ski has mentioned you are very limited as to options in a mount system. The mount has held up for me to this point for the way I use the gun (target and plinking). I have no intention of hunting with it at this time. The rings I used are the Weaver Quad-lock rings. I currently use these rings on all my scope mounted guns including my Marlin 1895 in 45-70. They do the job for me and are economical as well.

There is now another mount made for the GP 100 that I think has a better design than the B-Square.

If you go with the B-Square mount make sure you use some thread locker on the mounting screws or they will not stay tight.
