    I don't know of anybody that makes a one piece rail for the Ruger rifles , I know that Burris used to make a weaver conversion that mounted to the Ruger base and they had 3 or 4 slots in them.

    B-Square makes a rail.

    There are a couple of gunsmith blanks that can be drilled.

    +1 buy a rail and have it drilled to fit. Nightforce sells one and have great rings to go with it...

    I don't have a Ruger to measure but is the rear base the same measurement lower than the front as it is on the remington 700?

    I'm in the same boat with my Sako L691 , and I can't see paying Near $195 just to check and see if it will fit

    Its should be a bit lower as the front is the full round diameter and the rear is semi-flat. they could be close though.
    I've been pondering the full flat base for my Sako and just drilling and tapping it. The whole dovetail thing kinda sucks since their not consistant from model to model
