    Rail for a Ruger American??

    Folks,

    Does anyone make a rail for the Ruger American?

    If yes, any available locally?

    I know nothing about them but a mate has bought one to turn into a bushpig/bail gun. Unfortunately he wants to run a red dot scope and is running into issues mounting it in the standard rings.

    School a guy that has never even picked one up.

    I don't believe you have a friend with a Ruger!

    Apparently they won't work with the red dot he wants to use. I presume because of limited space on the tube? I've never held or even seen one so I have no idea.

    I told him he was fucking retard for buying it in the first place.

    Agreed.

    Did you find a slingstud for your R93?

    I'm pretty sure I've got one laying around in the garage.

    Yeah, he said he asked you but you said something along the lines of 'Rugers are lame and you are lucky we are suppressing it for you'

    .....or something like that......
