Hey guys/gals, my, niece got a new 10/22 for christmas, and wants to mount a scope on it. It came with a base that kinda looks like a picatinny rail. Can she use any brand rings? Looks like weaver style might work, she asked our local gun shop,but she told me that they weren't very helpfull ( probably because she's young and a girl ). Anyways, what would you people suggest? This is used as a plinking rifle.Thanks in advance

It takes a smaller base than the standard Weaver rings. The rings are made for the 22.

The older rifles came with a standard 3/8" dovetail that takes 3/8" rimfire rings. For the last couple of years Ruger has been using the Weaver/Piccatinny style bases, with a slot from side to side. If hers is "new" rifle(not new to her) then it should take any of the Weaver style rings.

If she has the OLDER type base, you can an upgraded Weaver version from Power Custom http://www.powercust...parts_10-22.htmBefore Ruger saw the light, these are the bases we used. The old style ones are junk.
