Ruger Gunsite Scout question

Recommended Posts

(Posted this earlier in the Longuns section, but then thought I should’ve posted it here.)


Just traded into a Ruger Gunsite Scout. Wound up with the 16” barrel, composite stock model. Really wanted to find the 18” barrel version, but I didn’t. 

I didn’t want this for the whole “scout” concept with the forward mounted scope, just my version of the concept being a light (ish) handy rifle in .308 with iron sights. 

I plan to mount my Leupold 4x on the receiver in low QD rings. I also want to have a peep sight in place instead of having to carry the Ruger sight around with me. 

I may wind up with the XS scout rail since it has its own peep sight, and it’s the only option I know of. But I really don’t want or need that much real estate on top since I’ll never mount anything but a traditional scope. 

Are there any shorter options out there for a “Ruger-to-Weaver” type rail with a rear peep sight, other than the XS system?
