Thanks to those that posted input on the 16" Ranch and the 22" Gone Wild Camo. I finally got to put my hands on both guns and I couldn't put the Ranch Rifle down. I believe it will be very beneficial for the areas I hunt. I will remove the scope rail and loc-tite all of the screws along with doing the same for the the rings.

Been eyeing one of those up for a heavy cast bullet shooter for a summer project.

Been lurking here for a long time here, but my first post.
Been hunting whitetail with a Ruger American 16" with a Leupold VX-R 1.25-4x20mm Patrol Rifle Scope, FireDot for 2 years now and had one issue.
Just as a normal practice I did remove the rail and Locktited it in from the get go.
Light weight, short barrel, kills deer.
The one issue was the irregular picatiney (sp) rail. Would not accommodate a one piece mount.

Dancing Bear , Thanks for the feedback. I would really like to put a Leupold VX6 1 x 6 on it but the funds just don't accommodate a $1000 + optic. I have a Nikon Monarch 2.5 x 10 x 42 BDC that I'm going to install. It should be ok , I'll just have to keep it dialed down in the woods.
