Like I said, I'm still trying to get up to speed on optics terminology. So I'm not sure what you mean by a "20 MOA scope rail". I know in very general terms what "MOA" means, but it's not clear to me how the term relates to mounts.
Sorry about all the questions
My new Christmas 10/22 came with the stock Ruger scope mount, bolts right on with 4 screws and my Bushnell 3x-9x Banner Scope with thumb screws mounts right to it with the rear site folded down. I can now mill the middle of the scope mount down and in 5 seconds have the scope off and see the iron sights.
I love my 10/22, Jim did my trigger, that is mandatory, now I just shoot and clean/repeat with it. LOVE IT.
Have fun with yours...
