    Ruger American compact rifle in 7.62x39

    Bought the rifle mentioned above and was looking for suggestions for a good scope preferably 10 or higher with a 40mm front bell. SWFA has a 10x but didn't see wether the front bell is 40mm. So any help and or suggestions will be greatly appreciated. Thanks,Frank

    Just started using these

    I've had one on my 30-30 for over a year and love the thing. Lifetime warranty and reasonable price. Works for me.

    Mueller Optics have been a great cross of midrange price and upper end features for me. Ive also been known to use cheaper BSA Sweet 22 scopes on my 22lrs without issue. YMMV.

    Sparky, think a 50mm front bell will contact the barrel. I'm using medium Burris zee rings weaver style on the ruger. Most of my scopes with one exception are all 40mm. Frank

    I have the scope on my Ruger American with low Leupold Rings. Doesn't touch the barrel.

    I'm using a Mueller APV on my Ruger American Predator . 4.5-14x40. They are great scopes.

    Again thanks to all whom responded to my post. Looks like I have some research to do. Live in a small town only one gun shop so will most likely have to order which one I pick out. Frank
