Which scope mount do you use on your stock 10/22, i just bought a old model and it has no mount so i need to buy one . I want to keep every thing as low as possible i am going to mount a small 4x scope on it.

Based on my limited experience, if you want it as low as possible, I would get either the new base and only use Weaver Style rings, or the old base and use Tip-off rings. I can't say which of the two would be lower, but I do know that on one of my newer 10/22s, you can install tip-off rings or Weaver style rings on the new base, but the 3/8" dovetail grooves are machined on top of the Weaver base portion, effectively raising your scope if you elect to use tip-off rings.

This is fine https://www.amazon.com/Ruger-Picatin...s%2C424&sr=8-1

As for low scope mounting , the size of the ocular bell will limit how low you can go and what height rings you will need.

Fwiw, I went with a thinnish Weaver base with the integral 3/8" tip-off rail right on top. This gives me all my options for using any of my scope/ring combo's I want to try without completely dismounting the set as is.
As said, the objective bell clearance is your determining factor, and I want more than a matchbook cover between the bell and barrel anyway. Then I discovered I actually do better with a scope up higher than I used to, crowding/scrunching down on the comb to look through a too low scope was a detriment. Imo, the opt-mentioned 'cheek weld' is of no value on a light kicking air-gun or 22 rim fire. With a light, but consistent touch I score better.

Yes, very true. Almost all offhand shooters use high or extra high rings. People with degenerative discs or arthritis also use high or extra high rings. So I wouldn't put too much emphasis on scope height vs magnification. If you intend to shoot mainly from a bench or prone, then go low. If it will be a mixed bag, some of each, then split the difference and go with medium height rings.
