Scope rings question

I want to mount a Leupold VX-1 3-9x50mm rifle scope on my NO 1-A rifle. Do I need higher scope rings for the height of the front optic ?

ruger makes one 50 mm scope with a curved bottom bell. that would work with regular rings.

Don't think Ruger makes that scope but it might be a Leupold (was).

What caliber is the gun and how much scope do you need. Perhaps a 40mm front or less might work well in which case a set of medium rings will work.

Just sayin.........

Ruger has never made scopes, I would think scope rings for a 50mm objective end bell on the scope is what was meant. You can go to shop Ruger & purchase Ruger Factory Scope rings in a higher profile to work with a 50mm objective scope. Good luck!!!

nope, scope will never see it even if it was directly in-front of it.

Why not you are not making any sense! If the low mount scope rings do not allow the 50mm scope end bell to clear the barrel the medium or high profile scope rings should work just fine!!!
