Alternative: if you are planning to use a 1" or 30mm tube optic. Use Warne QD Rings mounted directly to Ruger Scallop mounts. Take on and off quickly without tools or losing the zero for the optic. Don't have to buy a rail. Decent rail is ~$50. If you but a cheap rail you will end up throwing it away and buying a good one later. Better to skip the rail I think, unless you are using an optic that will not mount with two rings, such as some types of red dot optics with an integral mount. Personally I think the best red dot for a mini is the Aimpoint 9000sc mounted on Warne 14RML QD rings.
