Hey guys and gals,

I just picked up a sporterized mauser with a 1 piece Leupold standard base.  I would like to go with a red dot on this rifle, but I am not sure which one of the 30mm red dots would fit.  I don't want to sink too much money into a scope for this rifle.  I am specifically interested in the following 3 sights, but am unsure if they will fit.

http://www.riflescopes.com/products/AC10326/new_barska_1x25_ red_dot_30mm_sight.htm

Currently, the 1" rings measure 4.55" outside to outside.  Would the extended rings be necessary?

I would recommend that if you want to use a red dot you select a higher quality scope because where the dot appears on the cheap ones will change based on where your head is behind the scope. Not so with aim point red dots.  If you are using a Leupold standard base a set of Leupold standard rings in 30mm should be in the $30 range. I would suggest using a tasco 3-9x40 and 1 inch rings both less expensive than what you have shown. I don't think you need the extended rings but It is a question to ask when you order.

Do not know about that model BSA, but found their pistol scopes and red dots were, to put it bluntly, a POS. I have been having good luck with a Pro Point 2 on a 357 Mag.  A bit more expensive, but worth it.
