I'm looking for a very specific scope mount for the 10/22.

It doesn't matter if its Weaver, Picatinny or whatever, but it has to be a two-piece mount with a cut out so one can use the iron sights and preferably is should have a silverish color.

Anyone seen one of those for the 10/22?

Something like this:

That's unfortunately a one-piece rail, i want a two-piece.

Also i would prefer if it only had one slot one each piece.

Thanks anyhow.

Why do you want a two-piece base??
A one-piece is more likely to stay where you put it.

There are a lot of choices if you know where to go. Try USA Greatest Optics for a line on a lot of different dealers for optics and scopes. This is just the start but it may help.

Cause i will only use one of the pieces for a one ring based scope. And i don't really like how the rails look, so with one short little piece it wont be that visible.

I know it's really corny... I'm ashamed! :o

I bought a new 10/22 last year, a 2 piece base/mount came with it.

I like the full length mount for the 10-22. I understand the look your going for though.

That is almost exactly what i'm looking for, although i'm not sure the quality of a Weaver brand base will be good enough for a quick release ring. Also it isn't silver colored but that can easily be fixed or ignored.

I'm trying really hard to understand why you would want to go to the trouble to buy and mount an optical sight but then use a system that practically ensures it will change POI or even be broken off by rough handling. I'm not having much success.

The thin aluminum receiver of the 10/22 has a reputation for stripping out the scope mounting screw holes when the scope takes a good whack. Using one mount instead of two concentrates all those stresses onto a very few aluminum threads. Assuming your one ring is relatively near the center of the scope, an impact on either end of the tube would have the effect of causing the scope tube to act like a lever against the mounting system.

It definitely will not be as strong.

It's all in my name "Mad"... :)

Anyhow i'm scrapping this idea. Probably going to get this base: http://www.coolguyguns.com/Scope-Base-Ruger-1022_p_19.html

Low profile version of course.

And combine it with this mount: http://www.laruetactical.com/larue-tactical-scope-mount-qd-lt807-34

Most likely a waste of money but the zero shouldn't changes dramatically when i take the scope on and of.

Thanks for all the input fellas!

Also if you know of a better combination then this, feel free to suggest it.

Thanks again!

Walkalong,

Haha! That's the exact same rig I have, scope and all. You can cover a 5 shot group with a nickle at 75 yards. There's better scopes out there, but I've always enjoyed the affordability and precision of a Simmons scope.

That set of detachable rings is about the cost of a brand spanking new 10/22 rifle that already comes from the factory with iron sights installed. For what you're willing to spend to have a QD scope you could literally buy a separate rifle and have two guns: one scoped and one unscoped.

You would never, ever recoup your investment in those rings if you don't like them, but a new 10/22 will always have substantial value.

Elkins45 you are absolutely right, although i'm already aware of that. The thing is that i want a firearm that have more uses and options, not two separate ones. Having two 10/22 with different setups is not an option for the application i will be using it for, for several reasons. The most notable reason is that a second rifle+scope will take more place and weigh more than just a scope in a backpack.

My first reaction was that there a number of cheaper than LaRue ring you could get that do the same thing. But, what the heck it's your money and if this is the look you want then go to it and have fun. A lot of people spend more that that to customize their 10/22s.

Or you could cut the 1 piece base that comes on the gun and color the end with a black sharpie after smoothing it up with a file. I've done this to DNZ mounts before because I don't like the rail extending over the loading/ejection port on bolt rifles

OK, fair enough. But do yourself a favor and do an experiment with a set of plain old Weaver bases and rings--actual Weaver or other quality brands, not knockoffs.

Sight it in, then mount and remove it a couple of times. You might be surprised by the results. This has been forgotten over time but Weaver intended his mount system to be remountable.
