Thanks for the info, not sure if I want one or not I've seen some rugers set up to work with a scout scope and while it looks a little funny after years of standard scopes I have been curious about what the advantage would be.
.................The only Rugers set up for the scouts as far as I know, are the Frontier compacts. There are some minor advantages to the scouts.
Clear over the receiver (easier access)
Carry the rifle with the hand over the action.
Can`t ever get scope whacked.
Scout scope weighs down the barrel a little more for better steadiness.
Since I have the Frontier version, I can do both types of scopes. When using a conventional scope, the weight of the scout base which always remains on the barrel, helps to steady offhand shots as well.
