    Don't you just hate it when you know exactly what you want to buy, and can't seem to locate it? I'm hunting for some Warne Quick-Detach Black Medium-Height 30mm Rings to fit a Ruger Mini-14 581-Series Ranch. Sound easy? Just try & find them...:confused:

    Call Warne. They are pretty good folks who have helped me out a few times in the past.

    I could be wrong on this one, but I think they only make them in 1" size for the Ruger. Do check, I could be wrong, but I have never seen them offered in any of my catalogs. I put a Warne rail on my mini and now have the Leupold quick release 30mm rings. It not only looks good but gives me a lot of versitility.

    I actually found them at Optics Planet...over $100 for a set of rings! They sure better work out like I hope they will. If so, I'll have a new setup I've never tried before...will share later...;)

    Can't wait to see what you are cooking up. I set up my Mini with an Aimpoint CompM3 in a single Ruger 30mm ring. Love it.

    Yea, I've looked at a few single-ring setups, including one using a Primary Arms red dot sight that looked pretty slick. I couldn't talk myself into just one anchor point for my sight, though, and I don't know much about Primary Arms' product yet. I guess all of my "triple anchor point" marketing talk for the Mo-Rod has me brainwashed. For this new application I'm working on for a 581-series Ranch Mini, I have to leave myself an easy option for transitioning to the use of my Mo-Reaper front sight. But, I've also become pretty addicted to the world of red dot sights. Anyway, I'll share it as soon as it comes together...;)

    LOL...The rifle just showed up today, so at least the most important component is in hand. My purchase of those Warne rings turned out to be a "nonpurchase," as Optics Planet's website accepts payments for purchases even when they really don't have the item in stock. I ended up getting the rings from Warne directly, and they only had 1 pair! I told them to crank up their production...everyone's out of their stuff. Anyway, we should have this Ranch model transformed by next week...:cool:

    It won't be an earth-shattering shocker, as I plan to keep this Mini fairly simple. The sight setup should be pretty cool, though...if all the parts come in...:cool:

    Warne QD Rings Update

    I finally got my 581-series set up the way I wanted, and I'm pretty pleased. Even though I have the rifle mostly disassembled at the moment, I briefly had it with the Warne Quick-Detach 30mm rings supporting an Ultra-Dot MatchDot sight. This will be a pretty good setup when I get it back together in a few weeks. The Ultra-Dot is a solid performer, and the ability to quickly detach the sight/rings as a single unit will provide the shooter with the ability to use iron sights (in this case, the Mo-Reaper) as an option. I'll get some photos together after my daughter's wedding is over and after I get my trigger assembly back from MasterPsmith...;)
