The XS Long Rail with Ghost Ring for the Ruger Gunsite Scout rifle allows you to mount optics in the traditional position over the receiver, or out in front of the receiver. It is machined from billet aircraft aluminum and finished with hard coat anodizing. The long rail installs using the factory mounting holes but it extends over the receiver to give you more flexibility in mounting your optic. This rail also features a rear peep sight that works with the factory front sight and is fully adjustable for windage and elevation.

After taking out my RGSR with the Scope Mount installed for zeroing the scope, I couldn't be happier. This system allowed me to place the scope exactly where I needed it on the rifle (not too close to my eye/face); unlike the factory rings.... Thanks XS Sights! One more happy customer. AND, I need to correct one thing from my initial review: I meant to put in "ocular" instead of "objective" in one sentence. If you read it this way, it should make WAY more sense.
I am not the first person to review one of these, just first here. This rail is what you want if you want maximum versatility from your RGSR. Allowing for normal placement of a standard eye relief, intermediate eye relief, or scout (extended eye relief) scope is the best of all worlds in scope placement/versatility. Easy to install, and much quicker than levelling the scope! ;) Just follow the instructions, presto! My one major complaint is that I had to remove the ghost ring from the rear, but that is due only to where my objective lens needed to reside on the rail. This is no ding on XS rail, or the design, just how I had to place my scope. I like mine as low as possible, and the ocular distance placement was right over the ghost ring area. One more product I am proud to own from XS Sights!
