    Well I kind of broke down and said WTH and orderd/bought a Ruger scout as it was on top of my list, knowing I should'nt spend more money on firearms... I believe it will be a good compliment to my socom 16. I may just try it for a bit with iron sights but hope to get a Leupold scope, any suggestions in that realm??

    Since it seems like you aren't in a hurry, keep an eye on the classifieds. You can save a bit on the used market. You might also want to try the Scout Rifle forum. Good info, and I believe they have a classified section as well. Also keep your eyes open for Burris models, as those seem to perform well too.
    By the way, its customary to post photos when you tell us about the new toy you got. We need the gun porn... :) :thumbup:

    I have a Ruger GSR. The irons are actually very accurate. I put a 2.75x Burris Scout Scope on mine. Burris doesn't make this scope anymore so it took me about a month to find one on a classified ad. I think I got it on ar15. I also added a leather m14 stock to mine. Great rifle, I want to pick up a can for it this summer. Oh, one more thing. Buy the polymer mags. They are a huge improvement over the metal mag it comes with. I'm at a loss on why Ruger even makes the metal one.

    Hello and welcome to the owner's club of the best all-around general purpose rifle. The Leupold and Burris scout scopes are what Gunsite used a year ago on their facility owned Ruger GS rifles for media / author trainings. I consider those two scopes the mid-high end options. On the lower end, the Hi-Lux / Leatherwood 2-7x32 scout scope is a bargain. It's P/N 761874 at Midway USA and on-sale for $110. That's the scope I selected, but have yet to use.
