Sorry to hijack the thread but I don't like the look of the Ruger bases. All those extra slots look stupid.
I'm planning to get some of these bases because I only use the outermost slots anyway: https://www.midwayusa.com/product/29...se-ruger-10-22

Eventually I'll have some factory bases to give away too.

All of those "extra slots" are not stupid. They allow mounting a scope or red dot to give the correct eye relief and to allow using scopes with a variety of turret positions and tube lengths. In fact, the Ruger factory rail is too limited as it doesn't have enough slots.

The ultimate in extra slots are the Picatinny rails which allow the most versatility of all. Many of us have them for their adaptability.

But you're obviously OK with the look of a bunch of extra holes??

Why not just get a DNZ mount? No extra slots or holes.

I think all those extra slots on AR handguards look stupid.

I'm with the above, AR's make me queasy. Why not just get some dovetail stock and have it milled to your specifications? That way you get EXACTLY what you want. Sure, it might cost a little more but it will be yours and yours alone, and you won't need to look at it thinking it would be perfect if it just was _______________, whatever your concerns may be.

Not just you, I agree. I guess you need it for all those attachments.

ARs are awesome vast range of cartridges, configurations, light, heavy, short, long anyway you want it. DNZ mounts are clean.

The only thing I don't like is that it won't fit into my pant's pocket very well.

You just need bigger pants. Like those ones where the crotch goes down to the knee caps.
