    1) Remove rear sight base (gunsmith removed it): $30
    2) Leupold Vertical-split 1" scope, 3/8" mount scope rings: $15
    3) NcStar (New Century) 2-7x zoom, 32mm objective lens, 7-layer Illuminated Reticle, etc. $54/included s/h from OpticsPlanet - Best Telescopes Microscopes Sunglasses Rifle Scopes Night Vision Binoculars Flashlights Goggles & more!

    Leupold scope rings model number: 55850 (Matte Black) (very low rise of .826")
    Leupold scope rings that don't need modded: 56533 (Matte Black) (low rise of .96")
    NcStar scope model number: SEPB2732B (Black)
    Bipods: Wicks Trading Post,Optics, Shooting and Hunting Supplies

    Now, for fitting:
    The scope will not fit just right with those rings....the rear lens area likes to "touch" the receiver with a lil bit of force. The rings that come with scope are for weaver style rails, but they have something helpful. The inside of rings have a soft layer of "shim" to keep scope from getting scuffed by rings. If you remove the layer from the top half of one of the included rings(you wont use these cheapo rings), cut it in half shortways, so u have 2 square pieces. Now apply each piece to lower part of each half of the vertical split ring that's gonna be holding rear of scope....dont need to add any to front ring....that lil bit of shim is just enuff to raise the rear of scope about 1mm....that's just enuff so you have about enuff space between rear of scope and receiver that u can slide of piece of "ammo paper" "wax paper" w/e it is between scope and receiver without any pressure....hold the finished setup up to light and you can see it clears. This way also makes it so you can use stripper clips, and the tops of the vertical split rings make a decent "iron sights" for getting a basic lineup of a target that may be WAAAYYYYY off in the distance.

    Pics of finished product:

    thank you very much....appreciate it. :)

    i just got that new bolt-on bipod installed on it last night....i had a cheapo el plastico one on it, and the 'teeth' that clamped barrel(dont ask)....the small bit of muzzle heat flattened em and it slipped off....so i stuck it in bonfire yesterday :D it only costs $.50 at Cummins Tool Sale....think it was made by a deaf, blind, mute chinaman, that had no arms :09:

    Ps. no offense to any deaf, blind, mute chinamen with no arms.
