Thanks...the 40mm is what I was curious about.
Hey, has anyone mounted a laser site to their barrell? If so what kind of mount did you use, and does anyone know off hand what the diameter or the barrell is? I have seen laser mounts with a 1/2" that will mount to the barrell, but not sure if it fits.
I guess I can measure, but hell that's too easy with this wealth of knowledge on the board.:D
Thanks in advance.

Ruger says a 42mm objective lens will fit. My 40mm leupold has 1/8" clearence to the hand guard. Some shooters have had to file down the raised, rivet on the hand guard for clearance.

Yes, 42mm objective lense, but what Ruger is missing here is the fact that the objective lens isn't just hanging out in space. It sits inside a tube and sometimes the scope is padded too. You should be safe with an X40mm scope, but it will be close with anything bigger. I had to file down the raised area on my handguard to accomodate a 3-9X40mm Bushnell.
