Looking to mount a Leupold M8 or FXII 2.5 Ultralight scope on my Ruger #1A in 7x57. Is this scope long enough to work with the factory rings on the factory rib?

I believe so but do consider the option of reverse rings....

Others might can confirm.

The 2.5 was the first scope I had on my RSI No. 1. It worked fine with the factory rings.

I am..........disturbed.

I always wondered what the job application is like at Hooters. Do they just give you a bra and say, “Here, fill this out?”

Anyone who claims the 30-06 is not effective has either not used one, or else is unwittingly commenting on their marksmanship.

WV, Thank God!
Yup. I used Leupold low ringmounts to stick the 2.5 on a .45/70.

These days the scope's on a Sako High Power (FN) .30/06 in low Talley Lightweights. Handy setup.
