10-22 td

I wish some opinions.

I have the provided rail mounted to the receiver. I also have a Purchesed a 3 X 9 X 40 Caliber Specific scope and a set of plain Jane Redfield mounts. The scope has a very generous amount of eye relief (I believe 4") so I have no problem except cant, me not the scope.

As you know there is no way to get it the case with the scope on so I was thinking of taking a small SS washer and holding it in my Vice grip pliers and removing Enough to make a nice fit. I do not think recoil woul,d be a factor.

What do you think?

Thanks in advance,

Winggunner and the Dawg

Sorry, I am not sure I understand what you plan to remove with your vice grips? Length of the scope? Adding a hole in the bag?

Standard length scopes will be a problem fitting into the bag. I think a compact 3x9 or 2x7 scope would be the way to go with a TD.

Just a thought but why not modify the 20 dollar bag instead of the 100 + dollar scope

I have a Weaver 2.5-7x28 on my TD. It almost fits in the bag. It's just a tad too long to zip up the case without stretching it and stressing the zipper. Leupold makes a nearly identical scope that's just a tad shorter. It's about $30-50 more but probably would fit better.

My solution was to loosen the bolts that attach the rings to the rail and remove the scope with rings attached. It stores great this way in the original bag. When I remount it, the zero stays pretty darned close. Might need a click or two, but that's it.

Not sure you're going to get a scope with a 40mm objective lens to fit comfortably in the Ruger bag.

Your other option, is to get a different bag.

Why don't you get a set of quick detachable rings that all you do is loosen the lever on the rings and it and the scope come off. You don't even need any tools except your fingers to remove the scope or attach it in seconds.
I have had these on different rifles so I had a fast option for using iron sights and they have worked very well returning to zero.

On reading my own post I don't either. The idea was to grind so of the washer off aqnd then epoxying the washer to the dfront of the rail so that I could remove the scope with rings place and using the washer as a stop to be assured that I was putting it back in the same spot. THEN I could remove the scope and fit it all in the case.

OK, so I did a couple cocktails.

I WAS NOT CLEAR HEADED.

The scope WILL fit in the bag ONCE I remove it from the gun.

What i need is a set rings with mounting bolts that will fit into the cross cut on the ruger supplied base.

That will allow me to remove and then remount it in the same place, or darn near it.

I am not wealthy so cost is a facture.

I use Millet rings I bought from Midway. They were very inexpensive but work great. They have large, slotted nuts that mount them to the rail which can be turned with a quarter.

I have four sets of Weaver Brand rings with the coin slot knobs for easy on/off that have been used extensively and my scopes on/off and get swapped around a lot...

The on/off of the scope with good hardware including a reliable scope will hold zero very well...any changes will have more to do with everything else but the scope if done right and the parts are very low cost...some cheap stuff is junk...some work great...I can vouch for the Weaver Brand rails/rings and VX-1 scopes as well...they are great imo...

1022 scope on/off zero test
